Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Frigidaire Model NMER336FS0 How do I change the interior light bulb in the drum?


Unplug the dryer first, of course. With a putty knife, locate the clips under the front of the main top to release the spring clips. Lift the top and support it open. Disconnect any wire clips that are attached to the front panel, such as the door switch wires or wiring harness. There may be a zip tie attached to the wiring harness that you have to remove simply by cutting it off. On the inside, remove the front panel mounting screws down along the front inside edge of the panel. Pull the front panel up and out to remove. Disconnect the wires from the light bulb, carefully noting which wires go where, and press the release tab to remove the old light bulb housing. Install the new bulb and assembly by inserting it into the front panel and snapping it into place. Reattach the wires. Replace the front panel by aligning the slots at the bottom of the panel with the support clips. Lift on the front of the drum as you snap the front panel into place. Replace the panel screws and reattach any wiring that you disconnected to remove it. Rotate the top back into place, pressing down on the front to secure the spring clips. Plug it back in and voila! Good luck!

I have a Whirlpool GEQ9800PW1 Electric dryer and I opened the door to dry some clothes and the interior light was out so I immediately checked the circuit panel to see if it had blown a fuse, it had not. ...


The fuse to this dryer is inside behind the filter housing beside the thermistor.themobilian_592.jpg
Pop that bottom panel and remove the filter housing to get to this fuse.

The interior light no longer works.


Could be the bulb. Here is how to change it. The dryer bulb is located at the top left of the dryer rim. You will need a torx wrench the correct size to remove the screw that holds down the bulb cover. This type of wrench is available at your local home or auto store and is inexpensive. Once you loosen and remove the screw the cover will fall down. One end is hinged so that end remains in place. On the cover its tells you the type and wattage of bulb to buy. Ours is a 10 watt appliance bulb. You can take the burned out bulb to your local home store and they will get you what you need. The bulb screws in and out of the socket. Just screw the new bulb in and put the cover in back in place and screw the cover down. It is simple. Good luck

My Maytag Epic Z Electric Dryer has an OE service code, quit working after the interior drum light burnt out. What does that code mean?


Refer to your service manual it will tell you what the code means. I would recommend to remove the bulb from the housing inside the dryer which is located next to the drum. That should fix the problem.

Is there a procedure to change belt? Also 1 (left) drm roller


No set procedure. Idler wheel is a common failure on Amana Dryers. Remove front panel and front bulkhead, from there you can remove belt from idler and pull drum from unit. The screws are a 5/16" hex head. While you have the unit taken apart, ensure you vacuum the interior cabinet and make sure your vent out of the house is clean, this will help prevent a house fire.

KA dryer has been running without a lint filter. Other owner. I need to know how to take off the front and back panal to clean inside due to fire hazzard. Mdl # KGYE800TWHO . Need schematic drawing. I am...


Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Next, place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the lower panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components and most internal areas needing cleaning.

The only area affected by running with no lint filter is accessed by removing the rear panel. With rear off, the filter housing on the left will have several 5/16" hex head screws to be removed for access to the blower wheel and housing interior. With screws removed go to front and insert putty knife in the seam between the top and front panels about 4 inches in from both sides. Lift top at same time and raise when disengaged.The filter housing can now be moved sufficiently to vacuum the interior from the rear removing any large foreign objects first.

You have now cleaned all the dryer areas that need cleaning. Don't forget the airflow through the vent line of the house.

Reverse the above process to reassemble unit. Good Luck.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
