    Basement was flooded 14" of water for a few weeks to top of toilet. (we replaced the furnace motor and board and it's ok now) I cleaned the water heater and it works but washer and dryer need repair too. There is a click when I push the start button on the Kenmore fairly new dryer. I have it apart and wonder what I need to repair/clean/replace to get it going again. I have yet to start on the Maytag front loader washer.

    I just read solution # 2 and tested it out. I have a GE Harmony Gas dryer. The dryer will trun on and work it just will not heat up. The blower usually will kick on with the first minute however its not coming on at all. Its did this about a month ago and then one day out of the blue it started working again. Here I am a month later and the Blower will not turn on. Is there any way this can be somthing that I can fix myself?

This is a Harmony dryer. The water ruined the blower motor (Harmony has two motors... one for the blower and one for the drum) The electronics are not detecting the RPMs of the blower motor. Here's how you tell. Press "HOME" then "HELP" then at the same time "MY CYCLES" and "BACK"at the same time. This will bring up the lqc test mode (technician test mode) press "START" and watch the display for Blower RPMs. if they stay low (less than 1200) morelikely in the 300-600 RPM range or lower, your blower motor is bad. Normal RPM speed would be 1600-2400 depending on your venting back-pressure.

Hello chucky40,
There is a good chance that your gas valve has been damaged by the water. Can you tell if after you try starting it if the igniter comes on and/or you have gas flow to the burner? Those are the prime suspects ( albeit not the only ones) but you will need to verify these basic functions before others can be examined..
Keep me posted and I'll try to help you get thru this..

We had a flood last night and had about 2 1/2 feet of water in basement. My Kenmore gas dry will turn on but will not heat. Is this something I can fix on my own or is the dryer now trash? thank you to...


Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is the Thermal fuse which is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover. If this fuse goes bad the dryer will not heat and you’ll have to replace it as it cannot be repaired. If this is fine then you’ll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

No heat..we had a basement flood and dryer won't heat up.

If your dryer was under water, even if only a few inches, then the electrical parts inside it will need to dry out before you even attempt to use it. Chances are, you will have to have it serviced now or replaced completely.

It sounds like the motor was damaged in the flood. You may be able to salvage it by spraying both ends of the motor shaft with penetrating oil several times moving it in between, but you may not be able to salvage it.

Flooded and not heating now

There is no pilot light. You probably got water into gas jets, also all electronics to ignitor need to be dryed. Also blow out all gas parts. If dryer was plugged in at time of flood you could have shorted one of the thermal switches behind back cover. Check all of this I wrote.

Dryer won't run.

First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance.  It may pay for part of the repair.  You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor.  On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.
