LDE7600 Maytag Dryer timer does not advance in the auto cycle

My Maytag LDE7600 dryer will not advance in the auto cycle, it runs continuously. It works fine in the timed cycle. I have already replaced the timer but it made no difference. I looked for a resistor in the wiring schematic but did not find one as yet. Any ideas?

Does the timer actually get to the end in the Time Cycle or does it stall at the end before ist shuts off?

The timer works in the timed cycle

The resitor checks okay which is good since it is no longer available. One thing I'm not sure of is if the timer works in the time cycle? If the timer doesn't advance in the time cycle at all then the timer is likely at fault. If the timer advances to the end but doesn't finish that would indicate a resistor failure.

Hi Fred M,
I found a 10k resistor on the back of the auto cycle unit and it checks out ok. So I am back to square one again.

I do see a resistor in the console area that you can check for resistance to see if it is the cause of the problem. This is an older dryer and I show the resistor is no longer available for purchase. If the resistor shows an open circuit then it is the problem. I'm glad to hear the Time Cycle works okay.

Thanks Julio. As I said, the timed cycle works fine so there must be voltage going to the timer and also unless I missed something, my model does not have a control board. I will check again. Thanks again

I can understand your frustration over the dryer timer not advancing, even after replacing it. i did some research on the problem and provided a link to a similar question on our site. I hope this will give you a better idea on the next step to take until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.
