If you manually turn on timer can you hear the faint ticking? #1Verify breaker is not tripped. #2 Unplug dryer. Remove back cover. On many makes there are 2 blue wires that connect to a white and black "fuse" towards the bottom of the unit. Unplug both wires and electical tape them together. plug in dryer and start the cycle. If it works, unplug and go buy the fuse. Clean lint out of air system from dryer to lint screen through exhaust.
-Have you done any electrical repair, or basic electronic...?
-If so. Here some basic to check it out: **Caution.!!
1. Check power source. Any power..? (Hot to Hot should be 240 V)
(Hot to return line "Neutral should be 102 V)
-Yes, Hot to hot is 240 +/- but hot to neutral 0
-Okay your neutral line has bad connection.
No. there is not power at all.
-The breaker is pop.
-Yes. Then next unplug the main power, open back panel cover
and test all thermal fuses, heater element, door switch , start switch and timer motor in " Ohm" Any reading.
-No one component is not reading. (Okay witch part is not reading
that mean that part is broken. Replace it)
are you saying the dryer won't start?did you check the thermal fuse located on blower wheel housing and high limit t-stats on the heater box?if the dryer isn't starting most of the time it's not the timer,if the dryer and vent line haven't been cleaned out most likely you popped a t-stat,or the belt could have broke,if the dryer runs to hot from being blocked with lint one of the t-stats will pop as a safety,unplug the dryer,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter and remove the screws that hold the metal duct in place where the filter slides down into,look at the top of the blower wheel housing and you'll see two t-stats,the one on the left is the thermal fuse,remove at least one of the wires and read it out with a meter,if that's good check the two t-stats on the heater box usually it's the one in the back that could be bad,if you find either the thermal fuse or high limit blown you have to clean out the dryer and vent line,something is blocking the air flow and dryer is running to hot,if all these check good you could have a bad timer but you never said what the problem is you're having with the dryer.go here put your model number in and check out your dryer parts.
This is called a thermal fuse located beside your fan in the back. Unplug dryer, remove back panel, little white plastic fuse with 2 wires running to it. Cost is about 10.00 bucks. Rate me if I am correct. Good luck!
first make sure you have power to the dryer.if you have power to the dryer than put your ear to the timer and see if you hear the timer running.if the timer is running than you nead to unplug the dryer and pull the dryer away from the wall so you can remove the vent hose and the back panal and the power cord cover.next look down and to the left and you will see a white plastic thermal fuse.remove the wires from the fuse and use a meter to see if the fuse is closed.if it is not replace the fuse and replace the back and power cord cover.plug the dryer in and check unit out.
if dryer is elect ck the power first /it may have blowen the breaker . one side . this happens a lot . turn both lines off and then back on . . if ok go back to controls and ck w ohm meter . "Q" why were you removing panel . did you have another problem ?
unplug dryer remove the vent line and take off the back panel,on the left side you'll see the duct that your lint filter slides into,to the right of it around 4 inches up from floor you'll see a white thermal fuse part 3392519,check it with meter,now go back to the filter duct,take out the four screws and clean it out,bad air movement will pop the thermal fuse,then vac out the front of dryer,take out the two screws where you pull out the lint filter,get a screw driver and pop up the top lid of dryer,one side at a time,disconnect the door switch connector,take out the two 5/16 screws one on each side and pull up on front panel and vac out the inside of dryer,when you get it running,go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing fully open,if it isn't your vent line is blocked,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower and blow all the **** out of the line and then check the flapper again some of the lint can get stuck on it and it won't close correctly,clean the dryer once a year and you shouldn't have any problems,a little maintenance goes a long way
The first step in troubleshooting would be to unplug the dryer and remove the cover on the terminal block. This is where the dryer power cord is installed. Plug the dryer back in and then take a voltage reading across the two hot (RED and BLACK) wires on the AC Voltage scale. You should read about 220-240VAC if good. If the voltage is bad at the terminal block, unplug the dryer again and check the wall receptacle across the LEFT and RIGHT slots. If good at the receptacle, but bad at the terminal block, you have a bad power cord. If bad in both places, you have an electrical problem with the receptacle of distribution source.
Now...barring a defective drive motor, improper source voltage at the wall receptacle, or defective power cord, the most common cause of a dryer that will not run is a blown Thermal Fuse.
The Thermal Fuse is located on the air blower fan housing in the back of the dryer. It is a small white plastic component with two wires attached to it. To access, simply remove the back panel of the dryer. The Thermal Fuse will be located on the blower fan housing on the lower left hand side of the dryer. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and disconnect the wires before making any resistance checks. The fuse should read about zero ohms if good. If bad, replace it. You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, or repairclinic.com. Just use your model number for your search criteria. The Thermal Fuse is listed under the "Bulkhead" heading as item number 8.
NOTE: If the Thermal Fuse is blown, it usually blows for a reason. Verify all your ventilation ducting and blower fan assembly is clear of any clogs. Failure to do so, will result in repeated failures of any components you may replace.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
HI, I would check the fuse in the dryer first. here is how:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. This is very comon problem and the timer will still make a noise when the fuse is bad.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
