when I try to start dryer, the light that says "sending" comes on, and the dryer will not start
Answer Mike an "open" thermal fuse can cause the symptom as you describe it. The thermal fuse 3392519 and belt switch 279782 allow power to flow from the machine control board to the motor, if either is defective or has an "open" circuit, the motor will not start and run. If the thermal fuse is at fault, you also want to check and clean the lint from the exhaust vent and hood.
Gas dryer fires up, when the drum is empty. I can see the flame coming from the back of the unit. It does not fire up when the drum is full?
Answer Hello Greg. If the unit makes a flame, but will not again until the unit cools down, you will need to replace the coils on the unit.
Dryer does not blow hot air and timer dial does not turn. Drum turns
This issue would sound like it is a faulty timer. You will want to check for 120 vac from the R on the timer to chassis ground and if there is no voltage present then the timer is faulty and would need to be replaced. If there is voltage then most likely the cycling thermostat would be the problem.
dryer does not run have power and light goes out when I shut the door. Hit the start button hear it click but nothing happens.
You will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing to make sure that it has continuity. If no continuity then replace the thermal fuse 3392519.
My dryer quit heating so I changed the heating element and it worked for about 3 cycles and now it has stopped heating again. Why?
Answer Hello Teresa. It sounds like either the cycling thermostat is bad or there is a venting issue with the unit. You will need to check both issues with the unit.
My dryer does run, no motor humming, door light ok when pushed in, no timer sound, power to the unit is verified, push the start button then hear a click only, turn timer pass off position and press the start button click only again, still will not run. no signs, sounds, or smell. what will it be is it the start button? the timer? or the thermal fuse. last cycle before the breakdown, was in low heat cycle only. I have the timer ordered and its on the way here, but thats just a guess. thanks in advance
Answer Hello Michael,
The only components in the start circuit besides the wiring harness that could cause this are the timer, the door switch, and the motor. I doubt the door switch is the issue if you hear a click when it is pressed. You should try this: Open the door and tape the door switch down. Press the push-to-start switch while reaching inside and spinning the drum. If the dryer starts, the start winding in the motor has failed and the motor will have to be replaced.If it doesn't start. the wiring harness and the timer are suspects.
Just replaced igniter, dryer goes on for few moments and flame goes off?
With the flame going out after just a couple of seconds would indicate bad coils on the gas valve.
