Question about Dryers
The dryer was working fine last time I used it in the week. I think the settings might be muddled up because one of my children tried to dry her school shirt this morning and the dryer just would not go. I don't know what I have done with my manual as I have not had to use it since buying the dryer about 5 years ago.
The orange light near the power switch and the timer button flickers and the dryer just would not start. Please advise.

This also happened to our dryer recently(our dryer is 6 yrs old). My husband replaced one of the capacitors along with a resistor(I think that's what it's called). If you don't know what you are doing then you can purchase on new board on ebay. My husband checked on there and they run about $90.

the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

unplug dryer remove the vent line and take off the back panel,on the left side you'll see the duct that your lint filter slides into,to the right of it around 4 inches up from floor you'll see a white thermal fuse part 3392519,check it with meter,now go back to the filter duct,take out the four screws and clean it out,bad air movement will pop the thermal fuse,then vac out the front of dryer,take out the two screws where you pull out the lint filter,get a screw driver and pop up the top lid of dryer,one side at a time,disconnect the door switch connector,take out the two 5/16 screws one on each side and pull up on front panel and vac out the inside of dryer,when you get it running,go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing fully open,if it isn't your vent line is blocked,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower and blow all the **** out of the line and then check the flapper again some of the lint can get stuck on it and it won't close correctly,clean the dryer once a year and you shouldn't have any problems,a little maintenance goes a long way
