Question about Admiral Dryer. 6.5 cu. ft. Electric Dryer in White AED4675YQ

1 Answer

Dryer won't stay running without holding down the start button

The only way the dryer will stay running is by holding down the start button, tried unplugging the machine, waiting 5 minutes, along with emptying the dryer, cleaning the lint trap. Nothing still won't keep running

It may be the centrifugal switch on the motor. The push button starts the motor and as the motor spins up to speed the centrifugal switch closes to keep the motor running. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: admiral dryer super capacity dryer won't heat up and light doesn't stay on. It happened when we first brought it home years ago and the repair may said to reset some button but I don't kn

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
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. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switch.

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

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 or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

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 this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (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.

My kenmore dryer will only run if i hold down on the start button. this has happened to me before but i cannot remember the steps to take inorder for it to reset.


first check the door safety switch,, if its bad the dryer won't run,, if that checks out ok, its time for a new switch for the start button, to check these, and do the door switch first, unplug the door safety switch and place a jumper wire between the 2 wires leading to the switch, try starting the machine making sure your away from any moving parts , if this works, replace the switch, if it stays the same, do this same procedure to the switch for the start button

Dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.


most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Amana Dryer will not work,will not stay on,makes funny noises


during the process of moving your dryer, it sounds like the drum became dislodged. With the dryer off, open the door and try to move the drum by hand, if it sounds like something is 'dragging' them the drum is off its bearings. IF it is, the quickest way to get help to take it apart is go online to youtub, type in your dryers name and model number and ask how to replace drum
