I have a Whirlpool Estate dryer, model # TEDS780-JQ0. In the middle of a drying cycle, just stop running. The interior light still lights up and I can still hear the timer clicking, Can a defective push to start switch cause a dryer stopping in the middle of a cycle?
The push to start switch would not cause a dryer to stop mid cycle. The most likely cause would be the motor overheating in which you will want to check the seals on the dryer drum and blower housing to make sure that they are not damaged. If so then they will need to be replaced. If the seals check ok and you can let it cool and it will restart then the motor would be the issue with the unit.
How do I go about testing the lid switch and the motor coupler ?
The lid switch you will check the outer wires while the lid is closed and there should be continuity. If there is no continuity then you will need to replace the switch. The motor coupler you will visually inspect as there is not a test for it.
After wash cycle the washer clicks and shut,s off . I just replaced
The pump, what else might the problem be.
Answer Robert, You'll need to check the lid switch 3949247 circuits first. If the lid switch circuit is not completed, the washer will not drain or spin, and the washer timer won't advance.
I have side by side fridge made by ge model # tfxdasa It is not autodefrosed after week I have to shut down for few hours to melt ice in freezer on back side after melt ice it is working very good for week then temperature start going up and ice built up again. thanks
Answer Hardial S,
It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
