My dryer wont heat up.
Answer Hello Todd. 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. 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
hi ,heater stays on even when door is open and motor stops, no problem with timer, it shuts off heater and motor when set to off +cool down, heater is good it cycles off on thermostats , and no voltage to heater element ,then heater comes back on when thermostat cools down, then get 240 volts,all wiring looks great , dryer only 2 years old , aside from timer and heater . what else can cause this?
Answer Hello Murray,
It sounds like the centrifugal switch on the motor is bad. The heater runs through the switch between terminals 1 and 2. If the switch is bad then you would have to replace motor.
Need to wire temperature switch up. I have 4 wires white, blue, white, violet, red. The red post on switch ah6 ah1 ah ah3 switch part #8528330.
Answer Hi. The Violet wire connects to the "V" on the timer. The white /violet wire connects there as well and to the # 5 terminal on the selector switch part # 8528330. The white/blue wire goes to the "AH3" terminal post and then leads to the push to start switch and others as well. The "Red" timer wire that connects to the "R" terminal and then goes to the "AH1" Red common post. The other "Red" wire connects to the "AH6" terminal then leads to the cycling thermostat.
