Question about Dryers

1 Answer

No power is available to my creda dryer

Can you tell me if the door mechanism has detached and fallen inside the door recess will it prevent the dryer from coming on, there is no visible power light visible anywhere on the front panel. I can retrieve the lock by removing the front panel. Would this unit show no signs of power if the door mechanism isnt closing correctly. There are no signs to say that it is this alone causing the problem. It was working fine and then produced this fault.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric dryer, not getting any power

Mine shows a faint light behind the control locked indicator and the timer is dimly lit on the two middle horizontal bars (middle of the eights). They go off by pushing various button combos. If I unplug it for a week I can get the control to work for a few minutes.

I replaced the control board, it worked for 5 minutes, then back to nothing. I want to replace the interface but would rather not waste any more money.

I dont want to check every wire for continuity. If someone has fixed this problem, please let me know.

Your dryer is equipped with a thermal fuse located behind the drum seat on the heating coil.

There are two white wires connected to the fuse. Pull those off and connect together. Your door light will come on if that is your problem. There might have been a problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for kinked dryer hoses, dirty lint traps or anything that might have caused it to overheat. You must replace the fuse or you risk catching the dryer on fire.

The control board is bad. You will have to replace it. You might aslo theck the fuse, sometimes they look a little different than you are used to. Refer to your owners manual and wiring diagram to find it. You can also find more info on the Whirlpool website. Whirlpool makes Kenmore.

My inside door handle will not engage the latch to open from inside the vehicle Have to open the door from the handle on outside.

There is a metal rod that connects the inside handle to the door latch mechanism. It is locked in place by plastic fasteners. One has fallen off the end of the rod. Opening the door panel requires special tools to prevent permanent damage to the panel.

Exterior, rear, passenger door handle will not open door. Handle feels loose, as though it is detached from any linkage?

you will need to remove the panel, usually for screws located on arm rest,door handle and sometimes around the middle of the panel behind a round plastic cover. Once all the screws are out the panel pops off, you will need to disconnect the power switches from the inside. Then look at the inside of the door, there is a retaining clip that holds the lever inside the door handle it may have fallen off or the handle cracked. Hope this helped tim

The driver's side door lock won't unlock!!! Chevy '95 G20

It's a very common problem. A greasy and temp fix is to press the thumb button on the handle, then take your finger and lift the top locking lever in the door mechanism that has fallen down to prevent the striker from closing both levers. This will not fix the problem. Most likely the striker (the bolt that the lock affixes to) has lost the vinyl sleeve and has damaged the lock from repeated use. You may have to replace the mechanism which isn't to hard to do if you can swing a wrench.

Driver side door will not open from outside and driver side window will not go down

The linkage connecting the outside handle to the door catch mechanism and fallen into the path of the window, preventing it from lowering. Remove the door panel and reconnect the linkage arm inside the door. Make sure th retaining clip is in place and fits tightly on the linkage arm to lock it in place. The locking clip may have fallen off the rod and may be on the bottom of the door. If you can't find it, you'll need to go to the dealer and get a new clip.

Creda simplicity condensor dryer model no T622CW.Problem, dryer continues to turn when door is opened.Which part(inc part No) do I require?

You need to replace the door interlock or switch as it is better known.
You could spray inside the switch opening with WD40, before replacing switch, as it could be just sticking.
Please rate my solution.

Problem with Central door lock on peugot 106

there is a switch attached to the back of the door lock that opens all doors, it may have fallen off or become damaged, or the mechanical connection to the lock may have snapped.

if the door itself does not even open with the key on its own, the lock mechanism has become detached from the locking rods inside the door, you would need to take off the door panel and look / feel inside near the lock, there is a thin rod connected to the actual locking part and the part the key is inserted into, as well as the internal lever to open or lock the car, it may have popped off. The key-lock itself is usually held on by a thin flat round circlip-washer affair, this may have slipped out too and the key-lock is not connected any more.

Door won't open at end of cycle Creda 1000 ecowash front loader

Hi Jenny. Do you have the model No. available?
Most common cause of this problem is
1. A faulty or broken door catch.
2. A faulty interlock. This is the part that the door closes in to.

Some older models have other devices that will prevent machine opening if it has not pumped out fully, or mechanical devices that check for drum rotation that can be knocked during the spin. Could really do with age and model No. of machine.
