Can I bypass the moisture control/dryness sensor to see if the dryer will work before I order one? I replaced the rollers and got a ground wire in the wrong place and when I turn on the dryer it blow that circut. Thanks
Answer Dan, There are a couple of tetst and "jumps" you can make at the dryness control board assembly. On the four wire, five pin connector on the control, you can jump across white pin#3 and Brown pin#2 with a paperclip or similar tool(just don't touch the jumper once installed) This will complete the neutral circuit to the timer motor, and the timer should advance. You can alos disconnect the blue #19 wire from the board terminal. This will make the control think the load is dry and the timer should also advance towards the off position in an auto dry setting.
Dryer will not heat up. Change heating element still no heat and mositure indicator only lights up on less mositure, so I cleaned mositure sensor and still no heat. Can this be the mositure indicator?
Answer Hello Alive. If there is a bad connection or part, it can always affect the unit. However, in this case, it sounds like either the thermostats or thermal cut-offs are bad or there may be a voltage issue. 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 thermostats and see if they are good. 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
Moisture sensor light previously would display alternately between more and less moisture. Now only displays less and cloths do not dry fully. Should I replace the display or is there another cause?
Answer Arnieo, The first place to start is the moisture sensor bar(s) 503625, located in the drum, on the front bulkhead, under the lint screen grid. With some alcohol, and a rag or toothbrush, clean both the metal strips and area, then check the light and operation. If the problem persists, then repalce the dryness display board 33002389. Good Luck and Thanks
