It keeps displaying door open. What could be the issue?
Answer Hello Nikole,
Either a wire has come loose in the door switch circuit or the door switch 134813600 has failed.
Drys 1 load, than will not start again, also smells hot. Wait a day it will start for 1 load. Thermal limiter??
Answer Hello SM. The motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It is over heating. Also, make sure the venting is not clogged on the dryer as well.
Is there a video for the new style dryers as well ?
Answer Hello Shawn. Sorry, we are adding videos daily, but we do not have one at this time. Thanks.
Is the cycling thermostat and the thermal limiter the same thing?
Answer Hello Shelley! No, they are not the same. The cycling thermostat is located on the blower housing and is part number 131298300. The thermal limiter is also known as the thermal fuse and is located by the element, part number 134120900. Thanks.
The dryer motor just humms, if I bypass the door switch, move the drum by hand, the motor then picks it up and continues to spin and operate
If the dryer motor is not turning with the drum empty then the motor would be bad. If there are clothes in it and it is not starting then you will want to make sure that the unit is not overloaded. If not then the motor would be the problem.
