Hi, Our dryer runs and dries clothes, but it takes between 100 - 150 minutes to do the job (up to 2 whole cycles). Would this be a cycling thermostat problem (WE4M216)? Or something else? Thanks for any help with this,
Answer Hello Dave. 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.
My dryer dries & cycles to the off position on the timed function only . The other settings dry the cloths but they do not advance to the stop setting.I replaced the timer recently without any change in its operation.Any thoughts about what may be wrong?
Answer George, First check and make sure there are no kinks, clogs or debris in the exhaust vent system and vent hood. This situation affects the air flow, causes the hi limit switch to open and the dryer timer will not advance. Check the exhaust temperature at the back of the dryer. The average exhaust temp should be approximately 135 dgrs.F. (+/- 10 %). If all checks are OK, you'll need to open the control panel and check or replace the PCB board WE04X10102
Ok Guys I have replaced timer, cycling thermostat, resistor on this dryer, and the timer still will not advance on cycles other than the timed cycle. on the timed cycle i have the proper voltage but on the other cycles i have no power to the timer motor. any other suggestions please. each cycle will dry but only the timed cycle will advance an shut off when it is supposed to.
