I have capacity plus Admiral dry 4 wires came off the timing doing a moving and I do not know there the wire go so I need help. A diagram is needed.
If you put the model in to look up parts there is a wiring diagram. Unfortunately we do not have a copy that we can send out. Here is how the wiring of timer should be
Terminal color wire
L black line voltage in
H red to heat selector switch
R Red to heater
N White to Neutral in
B White to Buzzer
M Orange to motor
S Purple to motor
Dryer stopped mid cycle, wasn't present, so I don't know if there was a noise or odor. When discovered, clothes weren't dry completely. When you turn the timer it clicks at the various settings, but when you push to start, it does NOTHING, no click, no hum, no nothing. We check the circuit breaker/ OK, the door switch seems to be OK, hose from the dryer to outside is also clear. I see in other Q&A you recommend checking the thermal fuse, we do have a meter an found the fuse. Exactly where on the fuse must it be tested? Can you suggest other possibilities for this problem?
Answer Hello Sandy,
When you disconnect the wires from the thermal fuse and test across the terminals on the fuse it should read closed. Any open fuse is bad. Also check your blower wheel to make sure that there is not excessive lint build up on it not allowing air to flow properly. Also check to make sure that the cycling and/or high limit thermostat are good.
The dryer will not start and the fuse tested good. I think it is the main on/off switch.
Answer Hello Joe. Check the door switch on the unit and make sure it is good. If so, you may have a bad timer preventing the unit from starting. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
