My dryer whirlpool still blow cool air but do not heat please tell me what the problem henry le


Bad heating element or bad thermo fuse.
You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the back to access the heating element. The thermo fuse is located on the side of the heating element.
If you don't have a meter to test the element and thermo fuse or just don't know how simply remove them from the dryer and take them to your local appliance repair shop and they can test them for you.

NO HOT WATER BREAKER IS OK


Not knowing how old the unit is, it's possible that both elements could be bad, especially if you ru out of hot water quickly. If your sure the breaker is okay and you know how to use a voltage meter. Check the voltage at the thermostats and elements. While you are looking at the thermostat(s), press the red reset button and give it about 5 minutes and see if you hear the water heating up. If you have voltage at the thermostats and the elements. Turn the power off and check for continuity through the elements. If you don not have continuity, the element is bad. If all seems to check out, you probably have a bad upper thermostat. Check all connections and inspect the wires.

The air blows but there is no heat. damn thing is only year and half old and samsung will not help


Unplug the dryer. Remove the control panel on the top. Look inside for a sheet of paper with the wiring diagram or service instructions. If you don't find one there, look on the back cover panel. (Every US appliance maker provides this, but I've never looked inside a Samsung dryer so I don't know about their practice.)

If you find the wiring diagram, you can use it to identify the wires going to the thermostats and heating elements. Now you can use an ohmmeter to check which part is open; the wiring colors marked on the diagram will let you find the terminals in the control panel going to the thermostats and heaters so you don't have to take everything apart for diagnosis. Note: in a typical dryer, if you get no heat on Medium, but you get heat on the Low setting, you already know the Medium heat element is burned out. High heat uses both elements.

If you don't find a wiring diagram, you will have to look for the thermostats and heater terminals. Usually there is a thermostat mounted on the door frame at or near the top of the opening to the drum. There will be a second thermostat mounted on the top of the heater pan or box. Usually these are supposed to be closed (you get continuity) when they are closed. The heaters should show some resistance, but should not be open.

If you find an open circuit from the control panel, it doesn't mean the part itself is bad; it could be a problem with the wiring terminal connecting the part. This is often obvious when you see it; the insulation at the terminal will show signs of overheating.

Trying to troubleshoot kenmore dishwasher. water is coming in and out like it's supposed to. doesn't look like the spray arm is spinning although water comes out. help!


Hi,


I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...

Older kenmore electric dryer


This is a element problem, all you have to do is on your meter, is put it on tone, and ck both ends of element, it should beep.The easiest way is to pull off and ck coils for any breaks( look carefully). Make sure unplugged at all times.

MDB7600AW water level


I'm not sure if it is suppose to fill above the heating element. The heating element may just be there to dry the dishes instead of heating the water. Try using a pitcher to fill the unit manually to above the heating element. If water drips out from below the kick plate then you know the water is not suppose to go that high.

Let’s say the unit is indeed under filling.

Check for a deformed shaft on the water level float. Remove the kick plate and look for where the shaft of the float touches a micro switch. Often the shaft is bent sideways and only engaging the micro switch indirectly. Straighten by hand for a temporary fix or reinforce the shaft with aluminum tape and sewing needle. Keep the retrofit light weight to avoid problems with water overflow.
