Hello, My question is, when I start the machine all is normal. But after a few seconds, the flame goes out. It turns the flame back on again, but for less time. After a few cycles the flame will not catch. What is affected ?
Answer Damian, Based on your post information, the most likely issue is a weak gas valve coil 279834. Since the gas valve ignition system cycles on and off for the first few cycles, the igniter and flames switch should be OK, The wiring inside the coils is weak and after a while the coils cannot lift the plunger and release and ignite the gas. Replace the coils and you should be fine.
Why dose my Dryer work on air only? When heat is it works of 5 minutes and then blows the braker.
Answer Hello Dave. First check and see if the breaker is weak and needs to be replaced. If not, it sounds like the motor is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It sounds like it is over heating and is causing the issue if the breaker is good.
My dryer only works correctly on the timed dry cycle. The auto drying never counts down to 0. I replaced the thermistor first then asked a question like this and replacing the moisture sensors inside the tub were recommended. Our dryer still hangs on countdown at random numbers and never stops running. What else could it be? Thank you
Answer Hello Lane,
The only thing that can make the unit advance in timed dry and not advance in the auto dry cycles is the exhaust duct. If the duct is crimped or clogged, the unit will continue to sense the same moisture since it cannot get it out of the dryer and will run forever. To test the theory, dis-connect the duct from the back of the unit and you will see the timer advance within 5 minutes.
Dryer heat control is off. It heats to very hot no matter what the dryer setting. What is going on?
Answer Hello Lionel. Check and see if the heater is grounded and touching metal. If so, replace the heater in the unit.
My Whirlpool Duet Dryer panel lights up and makes a click sound when the start button is pushed and doesn't run. Any idea what this could be?
You will want to check the thermal fuse on the blower housing for continuity. If there was no continuity then you will need to replace the thermal fuse.
Dryer heats but has a lot of moisture.Code AF flashes after a few minutes of drying time.what could be the problem.
AF flashes if a restricted air flow condition exists. Check to make sure the lint screen is clean, the door seal is in place, and the vent is not
obstructed. Check the venting from the blower wheel all the way to the outside of the home.
I have a code? It looks like my maytag Neptune dryer is putting out a code of t5 I push the timer button on a this code starts beeping.
Answer Hello Lilly. Dryer
Short Sensed. The Thermistor
resistance is very
low. Check for:
- Clogged lint
- Restricted vent
- Check Thermistor
resistance. Replace thermistor. 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
When doing the diagnostic test on my whirlpool cabrio dryer F2 lights up...what does that mean??
The F2 indicates a Keypad/User interface failure.
1. You will want to access the electronic control and visually check that the P11 connector is inserted all the way into the machine motor control.
2. Visually check that the user interface assembly is properly inserted in the console assembly.
3. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly.
AF code was correct. there was a clog halfway up and halfway down that I finally got to. Dryer ran fine with no code for a week now but stopped mid cycle with no motor noise. Full power but motor wont turn on. thermal fuse on the motor you think? thank you
The first thing to check would be the thermal fuse. Check for continuity on the thermal fuse and if there is no continuity then replace the thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse has continuity then you will want to test at the control to make sure that it is sending power to the motor. If not then replace control and if it is then you will need to check the door switch.
