Question about Dryers

Open Question

How do you start a Westinghouse LD605E dryer?? I can't seem to press the button that the sticker says to press...

The power is on and the program is selected, I press the 'start/pause' button and the light just flashes. The sticker says to press the rectangular button (the one which opens the door) but I can't seem to get this to work.

The LD605 series of driers is wall mountable and stackable
When wall mounting, the drier is hung 'upside down' with the knobs at the bottom to allow access, by people less than 8 feet tall.
The original package came with wall mounting bracke, and replacement sticker for the control panel with the text upside down so that it would be right way up when the dryer was hung.
If you arent going to hang the dryer, examine one small corner of the label area, the original label may be underneath and exposed by removing the wall hanging label.

The current model in the LD605 series still comes with wall mounting kit

SOURCE: I have AEG lavatherm 5230

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

On the AEG dryers there actually are fuses for the heating circuit, usually two.

If you remove the back cover you should find a couple of fuse links in series with each element. There are 2 fuses ( which look like resistors ) on the inside of the element about 20mm up. These will be the non reset-able thermal fuses.

Also when replacing that back cover it is crucial the seal be in good condition as this will render your efforts futile once you re-install the back panel be allowing air to move across the element in a manner it shouldn't.

I will also inform you to check for negative air pressure in a room/closet not allowing enough make-up air to flow across the heater/fuses. ( if it's in a room closed, make sure there is a vent in the door or some other air supply for make-up )


The other factor which causes these fuses to trip is poor venting and opening the door during operation.

I don't have a part number, but the fuses typically come in a kit with a new heater as well.


Let me know what you find or if you have any trouble understanding my post so I can clarify.

I'll try to provide further assistance should you need it in any manner I can.

Good luck.


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Westinghouse dryer ld505e on/off button wont stay on when l push it


If it has dampness sensor strips inside the machine they may be coated with dryer sheet wax or some other mess. Clean them with windex and retry. As the clothes rub against these sensors the dampness causes the dryness board to keep the machine a going. if no dampness is detected the dryer shuts down. Supposely to save power.

It seems that the main board, the program controller unit is a suspect and to confirm you need to remove the customer control panel and check . Check the +5 to the processor, check the connectors and the power supply, check for leak in the storage electronic capacitors, check for faulty voltage to the control board.- check rectifier and regulators.
If not the fault can be the processor which must be confirmed with a data check or oscillations of the crystal.

Westinghouse - 60" Class / 1080p / 120Hz / LCD


There is a method called a Power Scan this method allows you to search for all possible codes. Try this until you reach a code that carries all of the functions desired. If the TV mode button starts flashing rapidly during this process you have exhausted all possible codes.
Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).
