Question about GE Spacemaker Washer and Dryer Electric Laundry Center

1 Answer

Dryer Overheating My dryer was plugged in, but hasn't been running for 2 days. When I opened it this morning to take some clothes out, the metal grate where the heat comes from was glowing red-hot. When I unplugged it, it immediately stopped. It was set to mid-cycle. Should the element still heat up when the dryer isn't running?

My hot point Aquarius 1200 washer dryer WD62 won't dry my clothes. What program do I use to dry my clothes. Fed up with having dripping wet clothes come out.


It sounds like you have a failed moisture sensor. But first be sure all the vents are clear and open. If you have the white flex have it removed, it plugs up quickly. Use a flexible metal vent tubing.

Dryer not drying cloths even though it does the full cycle? hotpoint wd63


There are several reasons for this to happen.
  1. Heater element faulty.
  2. Thermostat faulty.
  3. Heater relay faulty.
  4. Blocked condenser.
  5. No cold water going in on drying cycle.
You really need a meter to test the components with, to get the bottom of the problem.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Clothes come our smelling bad


Run a load empty on the hottest setting with a cup of bleach.

Then, after finished using the machine each day, leave the door open for a few hours to allow the rubber seal to dry.

Loud metal on metal noise, and sparks in rear of dryer


I've seen sparks flying out of an appliance before!
It could be a bad motor so be careful if you plan to plug it in again!
I would leave the back cover off before trying again so as to see what's sparking!

Electric Dryer overheating


sounds to me like you have a venting problem or the vent is plugged check the vent clean it out. make it as short as you can , also if you can use rigid metal vent...if all is clean then the blower wheel must be broken.. or loose. check for air flow out the vent ...let me know what you find..

Dryer - acquaviva 1300 - how it works?


the dryer has 2 thermostats if these are blown then the heater wont work but you can check to see if the element is burned out by unplugging your machine opening the top off it the wires that plug into the element replace with a plugged wire with bare wires on the end place each wire into the correct connector and turn the plug on this will either heat the element up or if it doesnt then the element is blown m8
