I am a senior lady, 97 lbs and need to replace this dryer. Can you tell me if it gas or electric? I can't see behind it. Thanks for the answer to this silly question. Patricia

SOURCE: hooking an electrical dryer to a breaker

You will typically need a 40 amp 220V circuit for this ( check with local building inspectors).  You will need to run some hefty wire probably #8 three wire  (again check) and install the type of plug receptacle that is on the  dryer cord.

Inside the breaker box you will need a dual breaker 220V breaker rated at 40 amps.  The wire coming into the breaker box will need to be clamped in place with appropriately sized wire cable clamp where the enter the box through a knockout- available at any hardware store.

 

Now the big question-  why are you switching to electrical?  Gas is pretty much half as expensive as electricy  and will dry the clothes faster (usually gas dryers generate more heat than electrical ones).   Just wondering..

SOURCE: Gas dryer is not heating up

Could be a bad set of burner coils. Does the glow come on for a bit then goes out. And after a bit does same?
Probably bad coils. If you were able to change ignitor, you can do the coils. Unplug first! The coils are the 2 black cylinder shaped devices on burner. They are held on with a bracket that has 2 phillips screws. You can probably take them to your parts house and they can ohm them out for you. Make sure to write down their position before removing them.

This is often caused by the front bearing assembly.

No, there are shims that the drum most likely sit on that need replacing. I had the same problem with mine. It made a horrid sound before the fix. You will have to go to an appliance repair shop to get the shims or you can order them online.

Your post lists it as a "Hotpoint TDC32 Electric Dryer"...that tells me it is electric. Where did you get the information to post this? That would confirm for you.

Kenmore Dryer Model 417.80042990 problem


Could be just that. Thin coins like that can get into the drum baffles (those 3 "vanes" inside the drum that lift the clothes). It's a simple matter to open the top, remove the baffle(s) and clean them out.
