Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

Maytag rsw24a I have replaced the thermostat, heating element, and timer. It was working great, but then after two weeks we noticed that the center line between the fridge and freezer on the side by side was burning hot, but the refrigerator and freezer still seem to be working. I pulled it out and the condenser fan blade was not turning. I spun it with my finger and it is now turning. After about an hour of it running, the center console is now only very warm, not burning. It was working prior to my replacing the thermostat, heating element and timer. Could this one little fan not working be the cause of that center part becoming hot enough to burn someone? We have also heard a very loud noise that lasts about 3 seconds, but can't get there fast enough to see where it is coming from - it is not a high pitched noise associated with a fan going out. The fan has continued to run in spite of the loud noise. Do you think I should replace the fan motor (about $25.00) or is the compressor or condenser also going out? Thanks for your help. Crystal

Sounds like your humidity switch is "on", which is what warms the center post. Turn it off and see if the heat problem goes away, and if you get a buildup of moisture on the center post. If so, turn it back on.

Maytag dryer wont heat


Probably the timer. Remove the quick connect from the timer where the big red wire is that comes off the heating element. Check that leg with the leg next to it. moving the timer knob . You should get a meter reading. If you cannot get a read then that timer is fried inside. I did a video which shows one exactly like yours.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:

Proper Voltage

If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.


tbirdfan1_21.jpg Heating Element


It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

tbirdfan1_22.jpgThermal Fuse

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
Thermostat

If any of your dryer's thermostats have become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.

A defective timer motor could also cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor assembly, or just its motor.

Heating element stays on when dryer is off.


I would advise to inspect the high limit thermostat. this device may be defective. this will cause the element to continue to operate when the unit is off as well. If the thermostat is operating correctly, replace the timer.

Dryer doesnt work but i hear the timer working


Change your cycling thermostat. When your cycling thermostat fails, then the reponsibility of your heating element to shut down goes to the high-limit thermal shut off (closest to heat element) and the thermal fuse. Your cycling thermostat should shut down heat element when it detects about 140* air in the blower housing. Yours can't detect that anymore so it lets your dryer heat up and up till you blow the thermal. new cycling thermostat and thermal
