Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My EDE05 drier has stopped working. Lights are still on, but no rotation.

My EDE05 drier has stopped working. Lights are still on, but when you try to start it there is a humming sound - no heat, and no movement. I had a duvet in it at the time, and, and there was a burning smell coming from the dryer when I found it stopped. The drier has had a lot of use this week with me restarting it immediately after it stops, as the sensor isn't making large items dry on the first round. This dryer is <4yrs old. Do you think it's a belt? or is the engine wrecked? thanks!

A likely suspect is the belt which may have broken. If it broke while the duvet was being dried, it could have gotten roasted in the stationary drum.

Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series quit heating after burning smell..

Any kind of lint or cobwebs on the element would cause a hot spot and fry the element or pop the limit that is mounted on top of the chamber. What your hubby soulda done is take the machine down and vacuum it out after sitting up so long. The fuse is not blown because it still runs so it must be the small guy pictured. It mount up top of the heat element chamber.ff8b5e7.jpg

SOURCE: Brand new Dryer starts then stops after 15 seconds

Stop what you are doing. It is under warranty. This will be more costs and it is not necessary. It is a mfr problem.

SOURCE: samsung front load dryer had a burning smell-it

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
under warranty??
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.

Miele WT945 drier removal


Hi dear.
It is very complicated work. I can suggest you should not involve doing that but if you know what you are doing try that out. See if it helps.
Common problem: Stuck drying air fan shaft.
1- Unplug machine from power. Remove top cover.
2- RHS at the back,on outer drum horizontally mounted motor,drives a belt.
3- Try to rotate motor shaft (impeller) by hand, see if it's hard to rotate. Try to make it free to rotate.
3- If you have a capacitance meter, check value of capacitor should be in range of 2.5 uF if not replace capacitor.
Beyond that you need to get tech. to assist your machine. I hope that helps so far. Thanks.

Amana LE7153WM drier will not start... makes a low humming sound when you push in the select dial to start the drier


Hi John, W/D here.
Most likely scenario: squealing was either a belt or a bearing. Failure to run is probably a broken belt. Gain access to the back of the drier, with the power disconnected. Open the back and check the belt. If broken, replace it, and then rotate the drier by hand, listening for additional squeals and squeaks. If no other issues are noted, replace the back cover, plug it back in and try it out.
Best regards, --W/D--

Our Hotpoint Aquarius dishwasher initially had the Eco & Prewash lights flashing & standing water inside. We then turned it on in the hope that the standing water would drain, which it did. It then...


Is it a dishwasher a washing machine or a drier? Washing machines don't have rotating arms and you said "I've managed to get the drier to drain"

I will assume it is a dishwasher in which case it sounds like your pump has failed.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Drier was working O.k . Timmer Stop working And so did the Heating. Does the Timmer control Temperature aswell.?


Yes, if the timer mech is damaged and, it will not rotate, this is cause the heating cycle to become inoperable. the time is responsible for initiating the heating command and the thermostat helps with the temp regulations. replacing the timer will restore the normal functions of your dryer.
