Our dryer is not heating at all. I have checked the heating element for continuity.
Answer Hello Brandon,
You should first make sure there is 240Vac to the unit. If so, you will need to check the Voltage output at the relay on the control. You will still need to check the inlet safety thermostat and the outlet control back-up thermostat. The high limit thermostat is also in the circuit. If these test good for continuity, you may have to test the centrifugal switch in the motor.Just in case you find the high limit thermostat bad, you will need to check the exhaust duct for crimps or clogs because the only thing that will open this part electrically is excessive temperature. This will only happen if seals inside the unit are missing or if the duct has an issue.
My dryer is making a low vibration noise. What could be wrong?
Answer Hello Dave,
You could have a bad drum bearing WE25M40, idler pulley WE12X83, a worn front bearing WE3M26, worn out glides WE1M1067 or WE1M504, something in the blower wheel WE16M15, a bad bushing in the motor WE17X10010, or the unit may just be out of level.
