Dryer is going through the cycle and the clothes feel hot but the clothes are not drying. Staying wet. Tried changing the coil-valve part number 279834. And ran two cycles of the dryer with the washed clothes and still doing the same thing. I also while having the bottom door opened after changing the part went ahead and cleaned out all the lint off of all the components. Can you please give me your advise as to what the problem might be?
Answer Hello Lisa,
It is a myth that the heat dries the clothes. The heat is merely an assistance to the air flow to help evaporate the moisture so the air flow can more quickly and easily remove the moisture from the clothes. If the clothes are hot there is nothing wrong with the dryer but there is an air flow issue. Remove the duct from the rear of the unit and make sure there is good air blowing out of the back of the dryer. If this is good the issue will be a clogged, crimped, or excessively long and complicated exhaust duct in the home. You need the shortest full 4 inch diameter exhaust duct as possible to outside atmosphere. Make sure if there is flexible ducting behind the dryer that it is not being crimped off when the dryer is pushed back into position.
No heat form my dryer. I have replaced the heater element. Still no heat. Now I have ordered the thermal fuse.
Answer Hello Mick. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
My dryer has no power anywhere checked the circuit breaker changed the power cord. I'm thinking maybe the power supply board.
Answer Hello Richard,
For model number DLE3777W, you will need a test meter set to ac voltage and will need to start at the terminal block. Be sure to wiggle the plug in the outlet before ordering parts. If this proves voltage is getting to the board, the board 6871EC1115C has failed.
Dryer does not run.
Answer Hello Len. You will need to check the thermal fuse and the door switch in 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
Dryer runs fine but gets very hot in the medium heat position. Worse in the high heat position. All vents are clear. All thermostats test ok.
Answer Harry, Check the venting length, it can't exceed a total of 50 ft. Each 90 dgr. turn and the vent hood are equivalent to 8 ft. of venting. Then check to see if the heater element or the wiring has shorted to the casing and is being energized, and not cycling during the heat operation.
My dryer is working fine but it starting making a squealing noise today.
You will want to check the rollers, the idler wheel and the blower wheel to make sure that they are in good condition and not binding. Check to make sure that the blower wheel is not damaged or has anything caught in it.
Flame won't stay on, replaced flame sensor, hi limit thermostat, and gas valve coils. No clogs in vents can it be the igniter ?
Answer Joe, Yes it is possible to have a weak or cracked igniter 4391996 , that could cause a limited number of burner cycles then fail. You may also need to check the thermistor 307208 for 10,000 ohms resistance at room temperature. Also check for voltage to the gas valve from the heater relay on the machine control board 33003028, if the relay is weak or fails, there's no power to the gas valve.
