My dryer only works on one heat temperature no matter what you set it on.
Answer Hello Joe,
Check the cycling thermostat resistance, (small terminals), for 28K ohms of resistance. If the resistance is off by more than 10%, replace the cycling thermostat.
This dryer stops before cycle completes leaving a dryer full of wet clothes. Sometimes it seems to run hot. Sometimes it runs properly.
Answer Hello P.C.,
This sounds like an exhaust duct issue. Check the duct for crimps and/or clogs. I have found many vent hoods outside of the home with a screen. This screen catches lint and stops up. If no problems are found, flip the breaker off and on to see if it feels normal. Unplug the unit and check the prongs on the plug for burned spots. If there are burned spots, the cord and the wall receptacle will need to be replaced. The only other thing that can cause this is overloading the machine.
My dryer quit heating. What part do you think I need?
Answer Hello Billie. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
