Dryer will heat up but then the flame goes out after two minutes.
Answer Hello Don. If it does not come back on, it sounds like the gas valve 37001002 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
After I start my dryer it only runs for 5-10minutes. It cuts off and won't come on till it cools down. I replaced the cycling thermostat and it still cuts off?
Answer Paul. Your description indicates the motor 279827 is overheating, and "tripping" the internal motor overload. It's most likely due to a build up of lint on/in the motor and the shaft bearings may have dried out, causing excess friction and heat.
I replaced the heating element and my dryer is still not heating up... what's next?
Answer Pam, make sure the dryer is getting a full 240v to it. If the voltage is ok, check the thermostats, they should read closed. Hope this helps, thanks.
Dryer won't shut off when on timed drying cycle. Can you advise what may be needed. Thanks
Answer Hello Andy. Test for power to the timer motor when the unit is running. If there is power there, and the timer does not advance, you will need to order and replace the timer on the unit. 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
