Got home today and my dryer and vent were hot. Dryer hasnt been ran in over 24 hours. What would cause that?
Answer Hello Mark. You need to check and see if the heater element is touching metal and is grounded and staying on in the unit. If so, it will cause the issues you are having with the unit.
I bought a number of items including the thermo-fuse thermsistor, and something else (from appliancepartspro) to fix my problems but not seem to work. My problem is the dry will turn on fine starts to warm up about 2 mintues later the circuit breaker pops, but the dry is still going with no heat. As soon as I open the door all power to the machine cuts off. I tried to run the self test after asking for help online, but could not get it to work. any help would be greatly appericiated. I was thinking of buying the High thermal-cut off, but I am tired of spending money at this thing. the hearter element looks to be in good condition.
Answer Aaron, You may need to remove the heater assembly and check for "arc" marks on the plate and inside the housing. The element could get hot(like it should) and may droop and touch the mounting plate, causing a short to ground and the breaker will trip and the dryer won't heat. Purchaing a multi meter TJMA-DM1 can and usually save you a lot of frustration, time and money in the long run, and is a pretty good investment.There is a slight possibility that the hi limit thermostat is shorting to ground, or a wire in the heater circuit has melted or may be "pinched" and shorts to the chassis after a length of time, You'll need some sort of a meter to check for this type of issue.
I have replaced thermal cut off and thersmostat on my dryer because it wasnt heating. It worked fine for 1 day then lights and beeps worked right but drum would not turn I checked thermal fuse like advised. It checked ok, still will not turn did diagnose test 88 and all lights come on and ideas what to try next.
Answer Hello Mary,
You will want to check the exhaust thermal fuse to make sure that it is not bad. If it does not have continuity then it is bad. If it is bad then you will want to make sure that your venting is not clogged. Clogged venting will cause duct thermal fuse to fail. If thermal fuse checks ok then you will want to check continuity of the door switch with the door closed you should have continuity.
