Dryer will only turn on in the cool down position.
Answer Hello Chad, It sounds like the timer 3976570 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
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
