SOURCE: dryer doesn't dry clothes thoroughly

Turn off your breakers, then back on to insure a good reset. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug and then to the back of the dryer. You are getting some heat which tells me that one leg of power is out. I don't think it is your element, because you get some heat. Let me know how you do.

SOURCE: Dryer won't dry completely.

rinse the lint sreen with hot water as wax buildup from softener clogs the screen and wont allow air flow. water will bead up on screen if this is true.

I have a T711 asko dryer. When I push the start button it makes the sound when the dryer has completed its cycle. There is a "signal" button that you can depress to let you know the dryer is finishe

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already cleaned the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

The dryer completed it's cycle and the next day went to fluff the load and will not start on any cycle. The display is lit with run time showing but nothing else.

Clean out the condenser....and the drum filter. Ifm this does not fix it there is a resetable thermostat on the heater bank at the back behind the cover plate.

Have AMANA dryer ALE230RAW. Hear buzz when start

I also have this problem, but it is after the dryer has been running. When the motor is hot, it buzzes and will not run. Sometimes it will run if I turn the drum or take some clothes out. I disassembled the dryer and cleaned the motor of lint. This helped but not completely solved the issue. I have completely removed the motor and will thoroughly clean the motor (stator and brushes) and will try again.

Car's power completely shut off when driving. 1998 Malibu

Problem is either the battery or the terminals that go on the battery. Remove and clean both terminals and if the problem persists replace the battery.

Dryer runs hot and will not shut down automatically

there is a thermostat or what we would say a high temp switch near the heating element to keep it from getting to hot , the internal parts of the vent must be cleaned as well, cleaning the vent and the screen is not always good enough. Ive had to completely take the dryer apart and pull all pipes apart all the way to the lint screen to fix this problem.
