Dryer is turning and blowing cool air but won't heat up. What should I check?
Answer Hello Mel,
First make sure one side of the double breaker has not tripped by flipping it off then back on. If this produces no satisfactory results, you will need to check for burned spots on the prongs of the power cord indicating a loose wall outlet, (this would require th3e replacement of both the wall outlet and the power cord). If this checks out good, remove the small access panel and check for 240Vac from the red to the black, (two outer terminals). Make sure there are no loose wires on the terminal block. If any further instructions are needed, you will need to re-post with the units' model number from the I.D. tag.
Dryer shuts off when on time dry, but does not shut off when on automatic.
Answer Reed, The first check needs to be at the exhaust vent and vent hood. Then check the air outlet duct for a build up of lint. On the automatic cycle, the dryer has to heat properly to advance the timer. if there is a restriction in the air flow, the hi limit switch opens and bypasses the timer contacts and the timer won't advance.
