Hi.

There is need to test parts. Testing is done with power not connected and using a multimeter. Part of testing requires disassembling.

The problem is usually the door switch. Motor and heating do not start like if the door was open.

Check the door switch. The door switch is tested using a multimeter on switch contacts. The switch must close the circuit showing zero Ohms or little impedance when door is closed. The switch must show Ohms infinity only with door open. Another way to test the switch is by jumping its contacts.

If door switch is OK check belt and motor and thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is located in the heating group, on top of the cover. The part is indicated with nr.39 in diagram below

The fuse is good if it shows low impedance at the multimeter. If the fuse is gone the multimeter will read infinity.

The belt and motor are reached removing the front panel. Details on disassembly procedure depend on the model number of the appliance.

You can find all diagrams and parts for the dryer entering the complete model number here.

Regards.

Ginko.

Remove the top panel, there should only be 2 or 3 screws on the back of the panel, then slide the top panel back about 1/4 inch and it should lift off. Look to see if the belt has come off. Post your results back.

I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

Whirlpool WED5100VQ1 does not heat


Those fuses and thermostats can be checked for continuity with a multi meter. There are several other things that can cause a dryer not to heat. Heating element, burnt wires, improper voltage, inadequate venting, timer, and motor

HI our Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher gets stuck on the first cycle and the timer doesn't count down. Switching it off and restarting drains the water, but it gets stuck at the same point in the cycle


This sounds like a heating element issue, If the water doesn't get warm it just keeps trying to heat but won't advance past this point until it has reached a set temperature. You dishwasher may or may not be fitted with a thermal overload that may have tripped, Unplug the dishwasher, Remove the lower kick panel and look for a small circular metal sensor with 2 or 3 wires on it attached to the basepan of the dishwasher, Check to see if it has a red button in the middle and if it's there push it then re-assemble and try again, otherwise it's a visit from the serviceman unfortunately.
