The dryer has an strange medium strong sound, like it is trying to work properly but it cannot do it. The sound doesn't stop. Could be the motor?
Answer Hello Carloa,
If the unit has proper power supplied to it, this could be the motor but you should check the drum rollers, idler pulley, and front slides first, since they can cause the same symptom.
Dryer is running but there is no heat. I think it's the thermostat but not sure which one. How do I find out?
Answer Hello Ray. 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. Should read closed for continuity. 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
The dryer will run for 5 to 10 minutes max and shuts off. It must cool down before it will run again. Will part # AP3020170 fix this problem?
Answer Hello Ken. No, it sounds like the motor W10448901 is over heating and will need to be replaced in the unit. Make sure the drum is not binding. If not, replace the motor.
We start the dryer and it runs for about 30 seconds and then stops.
Answer Hello Gordon. Based on the information you provided, if the dryer runs and shuts off after a few seconds, then the motor may be getting hot, and you will need to replace the motor W10448901 in the unit. Hope this helps.
