    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.
    Thanks!

    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..
Regards,
Rick

It's possible you have damaged the gas control valve or damaged the sensors in the heat chamber which are relatively easy to replace. They work on a safety system which will shut down all operations if they aren't performing properly, especially the gas regulator valve.

Hello, my dryer got wet due to my basement flooding and it starts, but no heat.


It is highly risky to use any electric appliance even after the removal of flood water. Before using it you need to make sure that it is not wet from either inside or outside. Even a single drop of water can cause a short circuit at you home and can also lead to unfortunate event. In such case you need to search for a company like http://floodfixer.com/ that dries wet basements to ensure your safety. Professionals can bring your valuable possessions back to its original position and make them ready for reuse.

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

Electric dryer does not work after 6" of water from flood


The heating element is probably has water damage. Open up the bottom of the unit and see what all has been damaged by the water. If both the motor and the heating element have been damaged, you may just want to get a brand new machine.

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.

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.
