Heating element gets hot when timer is set but dryer will not run
Answer Hello Mike. Check and see if the belt is broke or the motor is locked up and replace the part that is bad. The element should get hot unless the motor is running, unless it is shorted out or the belt is broke and the motor runs, but the drum does not turn.
My laundry is coming out of the washer with oil spots. What could be problem?
Answer Hello Robert. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the transmission 3360629 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
How do I test the door switch with a multi-meter and what should it read? Thank you
Answer Hello Robert. It is best to test the door switch for continuity. When the switch is pressed in, like the door is closed, it should read closed for continuity. When open, it should read open. The light side of the switch will be the opposite. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
