I have low to no heat in my dryer. I've replaced the heating element and the thermostat. All ready so what do I look for now?
Answer Hello Clockman,
First, verify there is 240Vac supplied to the unit where the power cord connects. If this is good, check the exhaust duct for crimps or clogs. This will cycle the thermostats off prematurely and it takes a long time for them to turn back on when the duct is the issue. Let us know what you find if further assistance is necessary.
Heat not working. What should I check first and second?
Answer Hello Glen. 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
I have an amana electric dryer everything works but theres no heat model # ned7200tw what should I check first and second thanks
Check to make sure that you are getting 240 vac to the unit from the power supply. Check the thermal fuse to make sure that it has continuity. If there is no continuity then replace the thermal fuse. Check the heater to make sure that it is good by visually checking to make sure that it is not broken. Disconnect the power and remove 1 wire from the heater and plug unit back in and turn the unit on and test each wire to the heater to chassis ground. Whichever side does not have power. That is the side that you want to trace back.
My Roper dryer is not drying. The heating element comes on and off, but my clothes are steaming inside the dryer. Don't know what to do.
IF the clothes are steaming inside the dryer then the issue is that of poor air flow. You will want to check the venting of your dryer from the blower wheel to the outside of the home to ensure that there is no blockage.
What is the wiring for one with four plug?
Answer Hello Wiley. You will put the black wire to the left and the red wire to the right. White goes in the middle and green goes to the ground screw. Here is the use and care guide and installation, refer to pg 8-14: https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%20W10150608A.pdf . Thanks!
Connected the wires wrong from plug to terminal block & shorted out terminal block. Could it have shorted out something beyond terminal block, If yes can I test with meter?
Answer Hello John. You will need to test all the thermal cut-offs and the control board. The thermal cut-offs will read closed for continuity if good. If there is power coming to the control board, but it does not work, you will need to replace the control board 8530589. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
