Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If it does not advance in Auto cycles, the issue is likely with a thermostat/sensor. Have you tried it in a Timed Dry cycle and it still does not advance? May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
