My dryer dosen't heat. What is it?
Answer Hello Mary. 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
Can you give me instruction on installing part ap2976318 (timer). Thanks.
Answer Lou C., here's some basic information " Unplug power cord or turn power off to the dryer. To access the components in the console : 1. Remove two(2) screws that secure the console to the top. 2. Lay console forward onto dryer top.( Place a cloth or rag under the console to protect the finish on the top). 3. Remove the screws that secure the back panel on the control console. Remove the timer knob, remove the two mounting screws securing the timer assembly to the mounting plate." Thanks and Good Luck
During the heating portion of the "sensor dry" cycle the dryer will stop, buzz, then after a few moments start again. It may do this several times during the sensor dry cycle. It usually completes the whole cycle but sometimes the clothes are still damp. What is causing this behavior?
Answer M Dell, Are you sure the venting system and lint filter are clean and free of lint and debris. Are you sure the "Extra Care option is not "On" ?
" • The Extra Care feature (on some models) protects your clothing from wrinkles if you are unable to unload the dryer within 5 minutes after tumbling stops. The Extra Care feature tumbles the load without heat every few minutes up to 45 minutes after the cycle ends.
NOTE: If the Extra Care selector is set to Off, the Sensor Dry cycle ends after cool-down. A signal will sound every few minutes when Extra
Care is running if the End of Cycle Signal feature is set On. The signal and cycle stop when you open the dryer door." You do have to De select (turn off) the option. Good Luck and Thanks
