If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

The oven won't come on but the light works sometimes it beeps


Raymond.
A, Which Light comes on?
B. What beeps when you do something? What are you doing to cause the beep.
Lights are usually on the low voltage or the 110v side of the oven so a light coming on means nothing. Possibly the oven fuses or breakers are only delivering to one side of the oven... first get someone to check the breakers to see if both are closed. REset them by turning to off and then on again, If doesnt work then check if any fuses on the unit... one may be blown.
Next see if there are any clicks made forget about the beeps.. the power to the oven is controlled by a relay on the circuit board.
Before this happened did anyone wash the front panel... moisture and cleaning solution gets down through the seal and causes problems with the circuitry... if so you are going to need to repair the face of the board if you are handy, or get a new one, or check out your local Habitat for Humanity RESTORE for a good used appliance..,. There are some there for less than a new board or new ones with minor scratches. (probably less than your current ovens,.

Could you please explain the problem in depth for me? Not sure what you mean by the control panel not working. Is it getting power? Do you have lights on inside the dryer (if it is equipped with it)?

Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305 Display doesn't show, oven wont work


Most definitely a bad control board and/or soldered components. (The part about cutting power to the oven was a dead giveaway)
There are low and high temperature solders, but usually solder melts at 370° F. If the oven is improperly insulated or ventilated you will have continued heat stress to the control board.

Kenmore catalyst electric dryer. about 3 yrs old.


You may only be receiving 110 volts, instead of the 240 volts needed to operate. (Thus, only the light coming on)

Did you reset the dryer circuit breakers?
Are you receiving 240v to the plug?

Ge quiet power 3 dishwasher


According to the GE repairman who visited, the solution is to close the machine (with the lights flashing). The machine starts and goes through the cycles, which it does rapidly and then all the lights turn off and the machine becomes silent after 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Then the machine has been reset to normal. During this reseting period nothing happens inside the machine, although you may hear a running sound.

Thus, the solution is to run the machine in this flashing light state for the 1-2 minutes it takes to go raipdly through each cycle and then reset.

I hope this helps.
