Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Hello fellow forumites, I can see there has been a lot of people with the same terrible condenser dryer as me, the Whirlpool AWZ7913 but unfortunately I can't afford to replace it at the moment so am desperately trying to keep it going until such time as I can. The dryer has been working on and off for the last three years, and it's latest issue was a very high pitched squeaking noise whenever it ran. I diagnosed this as a damaged jockey wheel, so I ordered a replacement jockey wheel assembly. I installed it today with little issues, however when I put the dryer back together again, it now comes up with a number of flashing lights on the front control panel. These are Clean Filter, Empty Bottle, Clean Heat Exchange, and the Drying and Anti-crease lights on solid green. The lights are arranged like this:- 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 And the current fault code the board is displaying is:- 0 1 1 0 2 2 2 With 1 representing a steady green and 2 representing a flashing red. As mentioned, all I have done is removed the back and top, disconnected the electrical wiring plugs from the heating filament, removed the heating filament housing, removed the drum so I can access and replace the jockey wheels at the bottom, then re-assemble, ensuring all of the wiring is re-connected. Many people seem to have diagnosed this as a thermal cutout or heater issue, but the dryer worked fine yesterday until I replaced the jockey wheels and I can't think what I have done wrong. I have also reset the dryer using the below fault clearing procedure: Dryer is switched off: 1. Turn dial to 6 O'Clock position (6th Sense) 2. Press start(pause) button three times 3. Turn dial one click clockwise (Airing) 4. Press start (pause) button three times. The dryer does reset as all lights briefly go out, but the same fault is reported. Any help that anyone can provide would be most welcome and very much appreciated. Many Thanks
