Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have an Admiral ADE7000AWY dryer and it wont start.

I have an Admiral ADE7000AYW (Model #) Dryer and it wont start. This happened suddenly. I dryed a load, loaded the next load and the second load wouldn't start. I checked the terminals inside the back, where the AC line cord terminates, and I have 240V across the top and bottom terminals as I should. I checked the door switch and its working properly (no continuity when the door is open - short when the door is shut.). I've check the Thermal Fuse and its good (disconnected one of the terminals and checked continuity-shows short as it should). Where do I go from here with the troubleshooting? Is it likely going to be the cycle selector thats gone bad that quickly?

    By the way, the momentary start switch is part of the cycle selector - just push the cycle selector knob.

Your dryer is equipped with a thermal fuse located behind the drum seat on the heating coil.

http://www.applianceaid.com/la-1053.html

There are two white wires connected to the fuse. Pull those off and connect together. Your door light will come on if that is your problem. There might have been a problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for kinked dryer hoses, dirty lint traps or anything that might have caused it to overheat. You must replace the fuse or you risk catching the dryer on fire.

SOURCE: 196 degree non resettable thermal fuse

That is the thermal fuse. It must read closed for the dryer to work. You can connect the two wires together to check the rest of the system, but don't run it with them crossed for normal drying. Many times this is an indication that the high limit switch is sticking or the duct is clogged with lint causing a high temp situation.
Post back if you have any questions.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

i had the same problem with my dryer and i installed the wrong thermal fuse for gas dryer which calls for a pink thermal fuse in which i installed and it works fine also check the lint in the front of your dryer. also my dryer which is the same make as yours seems will run on the fluff cycle until i replaced the right thermal fuse. my dryer run exceptionally hot and eventally shut down and it only run on the fluff cycle for any length of time.

Admiral Dryer Model #AGD4475TQ No Heat


This is very rare on a gas dryer but I have seen it. If you have already replaced all that other stuff I would say it has to be inside the timer. On one I worked on once I could remove that orange wire and the dryer would function ok so I ordered a new timer, they sent me a bad timer. Same problem. I finally got a working timer after going through a bunch of mess. That fixed it. So if all the other components are working it very well could be the timer.
