It could be: the knob/control panel, one or more fuses, or the heating element. When this happened to me it was the heating element on my electric dryer. The heating element stopped working because the air flow was blocked, causing the heating element to work too hard and develop a break. The air flow was blocked because you're supposed to take the dryer out every 6 months and clean the lint out of the vent behind the machine. No where in any owners manual does it really explain this. For my machine, the heating element was about 50 bucks and it was easy to fix it myself, but don't order a new heating element unless you know that's what it is. It could also be a problem with the knob, one of the fuses, etc. The heating element is the most expensive problem. The fuses are cheaper. If you have a multimeter you can check the resistance, but the place where I buy my appliance parts will check them for free. You might try calling around to see if a place near you will do that for you.
There are a couple of things that you should include in your dryer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.
1. Model Number The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the dryer.
Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.
The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of dryers.
With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.
2. Detailed description of the problem At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your dryer.
Descriptions like 'My dryer don't work' is not very helpful.
Describe what is not working. For example is the not heating? Maybe the dryer is heating, but takes a long time to dry?
The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The dryer is heating, but takes a long time to dry' you could go into more detail and say something like...
"I put a load of cloths in my dryer and set it on the auto dry cycle. When I went to take them out two hours later the dryer was still running. The cloths were still a bit damp too. Most of the time I can dry a load of cloths this size in one hour. Why is my dryer taking so long to dry?" Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your dryer repair question.
Hi, When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset. Hope this will help...
I have a different machine, butthere were only two things thatcould have gone wrong on mine - either the heating element needed to be replaced, or the thermostat died. I bet on the heating element and bought a part and attempted to fix myself. It didn't fix it. We hired a tech. Turned out to be the thermostat thinger,a cheap little part I could have done myself. But, we paid $90 or so and fixed her up.
This problem is almost always a broken belt. Yes you can do it yourself. Go to repairclinic. com and put in your model number for the exploded view of your dryer. Locate the belt part number and belt orientation.
Thanks for the Chat session I hope I fixed your problem I would like to email you the complete service manual on your model if that is ok it will show you everything and how to break it down please post your email
