Question about Dryers

Dryer won't start

I have an Admiral Capacity Plus that will not start, no light, nothing. The model # is LNC7764A71. I have replaced the door switch and the timer assembly. Still nothing. There was some debate about the thermal fuse. Could that be the problem? If not, where else should I look. The dryer was running fine and then abruptly stopped without a timer sounding...since then is not working. I have checked to maker sure I have power at the wall plug.

    Could this be the thermal fuse or further problems with the timer, or something else?

Why do i have no heat on my dryer after cord was replaced after it caught on fire?


I would check the heating element for continuity. If you don't have a multimeter, you could buy a cheap one or borrow one maybe? I found a video on youtube in case you need to know how to do it. Good luck

Admiral dryer super capacity dryer won't heat up and light doesn't stay on. It happened when we first brought it home years ago and the repair may said to reset some button but I don't kn


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring

Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Dryer not starting


Luckily, these units usually have a wiring schematic on the back, if not google it. The first thing on a washer or dryer to fail is the door switch. It's easy to replace or bypass. After that the start button itself may be bad. Follow the circuit, be careful. Use a continuity meter that beeps to check stuff. You mention a light. That means the door switch controls the light and the dryer, there will be a normally open leg and a normally closed leg. Good luck.
