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.
If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
make sure the vent system is clean. any restrictions can cause the safety switches to activate and turn off heaters. When it cools, the switch resets and starts heating. Unit will continue to cycle the heat off and on. Make sure all elements are working.
Hi, there are a couple possibitlies. Is the 4" vent that goes outside clean or free of a kink in the vent? This unit has a double element, one side of the element might be broke. Check you vent (even the vent flap outside) and let me know please.
most of the time your complaint is the home owners house venting.run a load with the venting detached[it wont hurt a thing] if ok then must clean venting till dried as well as with out venting.if still long dry times first must make sure air ways in dryer are clean[should have good air flow at back if hand held there] and may need to remove front to clean lint filter area.and inspect blower ,making sure mounted to shaft and not worn in the center[blower key way, inside the hole where motor shaft goes thru blower]you dryer only has one element so if you have heat its heating.if you did all above and have problem still can be electronic[thermostats,timers etc........but i have fixed 1000s of dryers and their having problems are rarer.i hope that helps God bless ,tom
