When I turn on the dryer, it makes a click sound and then the sensing light flashes and does not ever turn on. It does this no matter what setting it is on.
Answer Hello Matt,
I'm sorry to put you to any additional trouble, but if we could please ask you to check the units' I.D. tag and post the model number. This will enable us to pull the configuration you have in your home and we can advise on troubleshooting, test points, and even provide part numbers. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
The dryer will not start. When I push the start button it makes a noise. Will the thermal fuse cause this problem?
Answer Hello Bill. If the noise is humming, it sounds like the motor may be bad. Try pressing the button and turning the drum by hand with the door switch taped closed. If dryer starts and runs, the motor is bad.
On this particular model which is considered the (cycling thermostat)? Thanks, Curt
Answer Hello Curt! The cycling thermostat located on the blower housing is part number WE4M216. Thanks!
Can I replace the thermostat fuse we4m137 for a we4x800....or do I have to have the specific part....the we4x800 its just a bit wider.
If the unit is calling for part number WE4X800 then this is the part you would want to replace. There may be a temperature differential between the two fuses.
Hi , I have a 2 year old dryer (hotpoint) when turned on won't heat . I'm thinking thermostat and if so is their only one? What would the part number be?
Answer Hello John,
You have a total of 4 thermostats. You have a thermostat that is part of the blower duct system WE4M127. This is located at the base of the unit in the front. You have 3 that are mounted on the heater assembly. Safety thermostat WE4M160, 4 wire thermostat (high Limit) WE4M181, Safety thermostat (thermal fuse) WE4M137. You will want to check continuity of all these things. Also check the heater assembly WE11M23 for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
