hi,

try and reset the motherboard by unplugging power and waiting a few minutes and plug back in. What did you clean your dryer with?
If it was sharp you may have nicked a sensor, buy the wiring diagram and study away. Use caution with gas of course, shut it off look for shutoff , the flexible lines are brittle, be careful take time.

SOURCE: a nickel fell in the lint catcher and the dryer

Take the back off. You will see the blower housing. Take the 1/4" screws out and pull the cover off the housing. You will find the nickel inside binding the blower wheel. Remove and put back together. There should not be any problem.

You should keep your hand grenades somewhere else! Remove the top (either screws in the back or control housing or push in each front corner with a thin putty knife to release the latches), and remove the screws on the insides of both front corners, then lift up to release the front panel. That should give you access to the blower housing and duct work. Retrieve whatever fell in and vacuum out all lint in the area while it is open. Be sure to wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to get rid of fabric softener deposits which plug the filter screen. Check the drum bearings (either sliding pads or rollers) for wear. Replace if found to be in bad condition. Also, check the condition of the drum belt and replace it if it is cracked or breaking apart. You will need to access a lower rear panel to remove the belt from the motor and idler wheel. Hope this helps!

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermister which reads open and even the thermal fuse has continuity, also test the thermostat for continuity, the control board is fine it is this part that is causing the problem again and again. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Bosch dryer beeps


Two Beeps on my Bosch WTE84100au Condensing Dryer means a thermal overload but also means one of the thermal sensors is faulty .... as if it is always on.
Open the door, pull out the lint catcher and clean around the silver probe (it's like a shiny 1/8" nail sticking into the cavity below the lint catcher). If it still doesn't work (and still 2 beeps), just flick it lightly a couple of times. If it still doesn't work, flick again from the other direction.

I dropped a pen down the lint catcher. When I started it, there was a grinding sound and then it stopped.


Hi kjbrayton...
ALWAYS UNPLUG THE DRYER BEFORE YOU DO ANY WORK ON IT.
The pen is being ground up by the blower fan.
It has probably jammed your fan blades or is going to shear the blades off if it is not removed.
Remove the back of the dryer and look for the blower tube/ blower housing...there will be a few screws to remove then remove the tin piece and it will expose the blower motor wheel.
Remove the pen, reassemble and your good to go.

I dropped a screwdriver down the lint vent on the top of my 80 series kenmore dryer. Can I still operate the machine without damage?


I would be very careful if you are doing so. Every dryer has a fan that is used to expel your moisture and air out to the outside, and the fan is usually in the same pipe as the lint catcher. I wouldn't recommend using the dryer until you get the screwdriver out but if you want to try it I would listen very carefully for the sound of the screwdriver hitting the fan blades, because if the fan blades are ruined moisture will remain in the dryer and your clothes will not dry.

Whirlpool dryer lint screen will not slide back into receptacle.


YOU PROBABLY WILL HAVE TO OPEN THIS DRYER UP BY REMOVING THE BACK COVER. ALSO WHERE YOUR LINT FILTER GOES IN AT THERE WILL BE 2 SCREWS UNDER THAT LID TAKE THEM OUT AND PRY THE TOP UP AT THE EDGES ON THE FRONT BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT PANELS. THEN REMOVING THE DOOR SWITCH WIRES AND THE 2 SCREWS THAT HOLD THE FRONT PANEL TO THE CABINET AND LIFTING THE FRONT PANEL UP AND OUT. NOTE THE DRUM WILL FALL A COUPLE OF INCHES. NOW YOU CAN UNDO THE DRUM BELT AND REMEMER HOW IT GOES BACK IN. THEN REMOVE THE DRUM. NOW LOOK TO THE RIGHT OF YOUR LINT CATCHER COMPARTEMENT. YOU WILL SEE 2 5/16 HEX HEAD SCREWS, REMOVE THEM. NOW GO TO THE REAR OF THE DRYER AND REMOVE THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE LINT CATCHER COMPARTMENT TO THE BLOWER HOUSING. NOW GO BACK TO THE FRONT AND SLIGHTLY PULL THE BULKHEAD WHERE YOU PREVIOUSLY REMOVED THE 2 HEX HEADS(ABOUT AN INCH APART) TOWARD YOU WHILE PUSHING THE CATHER COMPARTMENT AWAY TO DISENGAGE IT, AND NOW YOU CAN SLIDE IT OUT AND CLEAN THE GROOVES THAT THE LINT CATCHER SLIDE INTO. REASSEMBLY IS IN REVERSE. iF THIS SCARES YOU TOO MUCH TO DO TRY RUNNING A WIRE CLOTHES HANGER WITH A SLIGHT HOOK IN IT DOWN EACH SIDE OF THE GROOVE TO POSSIBLY CLEAR AWAY THE OBSTRUCTION. SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO DISASSEMBLE IT, TAKE THE TIME TO VACUUM OUT ALL THE LINT BUILT UP IN THE CABINET, ON THE MOTOR, THE BLOWER WHEEL, AND ANYWHERE ELSE YOU CAN GET A VACUUM HOSE TO FIT OR GO. GOOD LUCK AND I BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT IF YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS. P.S DON'T FORGET TO HOOK THE DOOR SWITCH WIRES BACK ON. THAT SEEMS TO BE MY DOWNFALL WHEN WORKING ON DRYERS, AND YES IT MEANS RE-OPEN AND HOOK UP, BUT I'M GETTING BETTER AT IT. :)))
