My dryer stopped drying. It still tumbles, still turns on, however the timer knob does not rotate. Could I need a new timer to solve this?
Answer Hello. 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
My dryer will not start the door light comes on when open. If I set the dial and push the start button I hear a click like the relay working. When I open the door or turn the timer I hear the relay click again. Motor and drum turns freely vent area is clean. Any suggestions?
Answer Bryan, Reset the breakers for the dryer several times. Then check and make sure you have 220/240 VAC at the terminal block on the back of the dryer. If all's OK, you'll need to raise the top, remove the front panel and check the thermal fuse 3392519, on the blower housing if it has an "open" circuit, the motor won't start and run. It may also indicate an "overheating" situation, so check the exhaust vent and vent hood for restictions, kinks and clogs. Thanks
