SOURCE: Is it possible to mount the unit upside down on wall brackets.

Hi Don.

All appliances must be installed, used, and also transported and stored with the top side up.

If the dryer is turned upside down the weight of the drum, motor and other parts will not be sustained anymore by the rollers and other structural parts located inside the appliance.
The dryer will start, but it will break down after a short usage.

There are also other safety issues involved.

The dryer cannot be installed upside down.

Try opening the door, spin the drum by hand, then qi\uickly close& press start. If this works, then the capacitor has failed. About $30, easy to replace.

Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks.
If this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the
wire is attached.
Check the Door Switch
If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed
component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame.
Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed.
If not replace the door switch.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause
heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the
thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape
or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged
with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's
plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Hello Suznpete, welcome to FixYa. I will start by saying your post indicates it is a Westinghouse dryer, however if you could post the complete model number (the one provided doesn't appear to be complete) and the approximate age I can speak directly about possible causes/remedies instead of generalizing. I'll need to clarify the model number before detailing much of course. I'll need to watch for your reply before moving forward. Thank you for choosing FixYa. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Westinghouse dryer LD505E is to be mounted on a brick wall ,what size rawlplugs & screws are needed .I bought the wall bracket mounting kit

that unit does not have wall mounting information its user manual
or a wall mount bracket supplied with that dryer
its a 5KG dryer by the looks of it

thats means its load a with 5kgs of wet clothes on the floor
suggest to me its no meant to be wall mounted

wall mount kit might be say suit most dryers
you have to go by common sense
use bigger mountings and fixings that you think it needs
has to hold up on the wall
this much weight
the all up wet weight of clothes
the dryer dry weight empty
and steady any vibration with the rotation on full load

into wood walls depends on the thickness of wood

if into dry wall ...need to hit the wall studs centre
I would not try it

if going into brick concrete ...hammer drill in and . ranset bolts

Can I wall-mount a Hoover Aqua vision tumble dryer?

Depends on the wall. Unless solid masonry it would be better standing on floor-standing racking or a platform.

I mounted our half-size dryer on a home-made shelf above our chest freezer as a space-saving measure and given the space and a very substantial wall there is little reason why a full-size dryer should not be similarly mounted.

The cabinet of the dryer is not rigid enough for direct wall mounting (if it was it would be far too heavy) and so it must stand on a shelf strong enough to support the weight of the machine and the load and the shelf must also be capable of absorbing a certain amount of vibration and be purpose-built to prevent the machine rolling off due to the vibration or internal forces.

I don't know of any commercially-built shelves for the purpose so one would need constructing, probably from a mixture of timber and steel or aluminium and the whole very firmly anchored to the wall with through-bolts if possible or resin-bonded anchors or similar. Ordinary plugs and screws would not be suitable.

It starts working for a minute and it stop working

It is an indication of a shorted thermistor. Disconnect power to the dryer and check the resistance of the thermistor.

The thermistor (part #8577274) is located on the blower housing with red/white stripe and black wires and can be accessed by removing the lower front access panel. Remove the two hex-head screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet and pull the bottom out then down and move the panel away from the cabinet.

Disconnect one wire from the thermistor and use an ohmmeter, set to X1, to measure the resistance. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the thermistor terminals and measure the resistance. The resistance reading at room temperature of a good thermistor is between 8.5 and 13.5 ohms; otherwise, replace the thermistor.

Remove the two screws mounting the thermistor to the blower housing then mount and secure the new thermistor in place. Connect the thermistor wires then slide the lower front access panel up back into position to the cabinet and secure its bottom with the two securing screws.

In case the measured thermistor resistance falls within the allowed range, measure the resistance between the disconnected thermistor wire and the other one. Replace the dryer control electronics (part #8546219).

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer then slide the panel rearward and lift it off.

Facing the front of the dryer, the dryer control board is located on the left mounted behind the bracket. Remove the three screws holding the bracket in place then rotate assembly up and set it on the side panel.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the control board one at a time then connect it to the new control board.

Remove the control board mounting screw near the transformer then press the side ends one at a time to release the mounting tabs and lift the end away from the bracket.

Secure the new control board to the bracket and reassemble the rest in reverse of the steps given above.

Is it possible to mount the unit upside down on wall brackets, and of course, the dryer still operates satisfactorily? As there does not appear to have pressed openings on the rear panel for bracket...

Hoover 5010D dryer

There should be two rectangular holes about 2mm wide and 10-12mm long. There is a wall mount bracket [D470] which you install against the wall and then the hardest part is getting the dryer on the bracket.
Obviously when installing the bracket make sure that the wall and the screws can hold at least 30kgs.

I just bought a second hand westinghouse dryer 6kg LD605E, the sticker on the machine is upside down and the seller told me that the machine can be used either way. it this true? thanks

The LD605 series of driers is wall mountable and stackable
When wall mounting, the drier is hung 'upside down' with the knobs at the bottom to allow access, by people less than 8 feet tall.
The original package came with wall mounting bracke, and replacement sticker for the control panel with the text upside down so that it would be right way up when the dryer was hung.
If you arent going to hang the dryer, examine one small corner of the label area, the original label may be underneath and exposed by removing the wall hanging label.

The current model in the LD605 series still comes with wall mounting kit

Hoover 5050ed clothes dryer/tumble dryer

If the dryer hasn't been mounted before, you'll need to punch the blank slots through. At the bottom of the dryer (because you wall mount it up-side-down, so these slots will then be at the top), you'll see a vertical hole in one layer of the metal on the back to each side. Knock these through to reveal the holes where the bracket can go in. You'll also want to replace the control panel decal with the wall mount one that has all the controls up the correct way when wall mounted.
