My dryer quit working. Prior to it's stop, the inside space between the front panel and the collector was full of lint, to where the lint trap would not seat properly. I took apart and cleaned out. Right after that dryer ran, but then suddenly stopped. No power at all, door light off.
I found your forum, and found it it could be the door switch, one of the fuses or thermostats. I am beginning my testing, starting with the door switch, which is out of the dryer. I have a rubber band holding down the button. Connection between COM and NC shows 1 on the Ohm meter, but connection between COM and NO leads fluctuates between 21-25. Is this normal?
ANSWER RW, First check and make sure you have 220/240 VAC at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. Then check the door switch and wiring 53-0148 and make sure the switch "clicks" when you press and release the plunger. Good Luck and Thanks
