Question about Dryers

5 Answers

My Bauknecht TRK885 air condensation tumble dryer: after the previous load i switched on again, heats up but does not cycle.It seems the clock tries to run but does not and a 'ticking'noise appears which is different from the regular sound. The maintenance indiciator is n o t lit up. Any idea, although it is an oldie, though in perfect order- i think:-) Thanks

    that is what i had in mind too. Any idea if this could be a major repair?

  • dinahcyprus Feb 28, 2009

    Thank you so far for your help. Those timers, are they generally the same or does each brand have their own?

  • dinahcyprus Feb 28, 2009

    i have browsed already and quite expensive. But, i will keep you posted.

    Hi, you are experiencing control panel board failure. There are many components that are affected by this type of control board malfunctions including timing and proper temperature regulations. The cycle will also be affected by this malfunction as well.

    Sounds like the timer may have gone bad and needs to be replaced. Have you tried running it in different modes?

      Shouldn't be too bad if you are a good do-it-yourself kind of person. The part is relatively easy to replace, let me know if you need anything else.

      each machine has its own, you will need to go through the supplier or through someone who sells the exact one for your machine

    That is probably a faulty control board, check also that the door switch is closing properly.

    My candy tumble dryer gov218-80 blows just cold


    Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

    Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
    overheating.

    The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


    Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

    OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run , the heater should not heat in order not to create fire but you said that even the motor is not running, the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

    Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
    For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

    In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

    Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
    Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
    A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

    E15 error code on hoover tumble dryer


    Controls
    • The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
    Motor
    • The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles. The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.
