My dryer runs but will not heat. I have replaced the heating element an the thermal limiter. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Justin,
You also want to check your hi limit thermostat 3204267 to make sure that you have continuity through it. Also check the thermistor 134587700 on the front of the blower duct for continuity. Check venting to make sure that it is clear from blower wheel all the way the the outside of home.
Could the thermistor control prevent dryer motor from starting? I checked it with ohm meter and it shows open.
Answer Hi. Yes, the thermistor part # 134587700 can prevent the dryer from running. Also check the igniter sensor part # 5303281135 to see if it has opened as well. Make sure the vent is entirely clear and not restricted. Make sure the outside vent cap / hood is opening and closing properly 4-5x /yr. so lint and moisture does not back up and create a restriction causing these issues. Thank You.
The dryer keeps cycling the heat on and off. I have replaced the control panel but now I am getting codes DA and E68. Can you tell me what these codes mean?
Answer Hello Nettie. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
