Recently bought a whirlpool duet sport that was a scratch/dent ad is. Installed cord, plugged it in powered on. Set it to either auto or manual cycle pushed start dryer starts, runs 20-50 second s and stops turning. No fault codes show up, if on an auto cycle the timer continues to count down ----any ideas?
ANSWER Hello Baffled,
You would want to check the sensor bar to make sure that it is not bad. Check your venting to make sure that it is clean including the blower housing. Clean sensor bar with alcohol. If the sensor bar is reading that clothes are dry it will shut down. Check thermal fuses and thermostats for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
