I just asked a question about my cabinet dryer. The correct model number is MCE8000AYW. The problem is that the upper cabinet dryer heat does not seem to be shutting off at the end of the cycle. In addition, I noticed that the control panel seems to have a distortion in the membrane. I justs replaced it October 2014and am told that the part 3100158 is no longer available, if that's the problem.
The issue with the heat not turning off would not have anything to do with the console. This issue would most likely be caused by a shorted wire in which you will need to check the wiring in the unit for a wire that may be shorted out. Also for the console, make sure that there is not a protective film on the console which could make it have distortion. If not then the console has been discontinued with no suitable replacement available.
The dryer heat does not seem to be shutting off. My wife said that the clothes feel warm even ater the cycle has completed.
Answer Hello Jim,
If you could please re-post with the model number from the units' I.D. tag, we can pull the wiring diagram and give you good testing information to determine the issue with your unit. The model number you posted is for the washer.
UPPER DRYER...it is working but OFF button lights wont go off even you press the OFF SIGN BUTTON.
LOWER BUTTON...wont start at all tho some of the lights are on.
Answer Hello Violet. You will need to replace the console 31001658 to repair one of the issues. As for the lower dryer not running, Will Not Run
Will not start or run:
• All wires are hooked up to their corresponding
• Dryer is plugged in.
• Blown fuse or circuit breaker.
• Door switch functional...door closed.
• Poor connection between membrane switch and
logic board, or faulty membrane switch. Use "Pd"
utility to check function of membrane switch.
• Faulty motor relay, use diagnostic utilities to
manually operate relay.
• Drive motor functional.
• Blown thermal fuse.
