The automatic cycle timer doesn't advance. (Tried it with vent off, still dosen't advance.) Timed cycle advances. No heat in the dryer on any cycle.
Answer Frank, On this style dryer, if the timer advances in the timed dry selection, there's a 99% chance the timer is not the issue. If the timer won't advance in the auto dry selection, there's a 99% chance, it is due to a heat issue. You'll need to remove the 1X1 in. plasticcover on the front pnel, start the dryer on any heat cycle and observe the ignition procedure through the opening under the inspection hole cover. When you sttart the dryer, the igniter should glow for 30 to 60 seconds, you should hear a slight click and the igniter should start to fayed and the gas released should ignite. No glow from the igniter would indicate a broken igniter 279311 , faulty sensor 338906 or open thermostat W10423382 3387134 . If the igniter cycles on and off, but there's no flame, then the issue would be a gas supply issue or most likely weak or inop coil assembly 279834 . Thanks
Ordered and recieved new timer, connected wires but dryer seems to run but not hot. Was looking at wiring diagram and it seems to indicate open and closed circuits for wiring. Need help for this part.
Answer Hello Cassie. 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
