SOURCE: How to unstack a dryer

I have a Kenmore 417.69042990 stackable dryer and had a similar problem. To unstack it, in the front of the dryer there are two screws that are covered by round caps. They are easy to miss unless you look for them. Remove the caps, and the screws underneath it. Now, voila, you can lift the front of the dryer and pull as to unlock it from the two brackets in the rear of the dryer. Hope this helps... I took me and my husband over an hour to figure this out...

I have the same problem. When the timer approaches 0:00, it adds one hour. Try turning off the power (breaker) for a while and turning it back on. It works for me.

SOURCE: how can I tell if the heating element is gone in

Hi k jeffrey510...
Before you jump right to the heating element you may want to check a few of the things below.
The way to check the heating element is included in the instructions below:

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Check your Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. If 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.
Check the 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.
Check to make sure you heating problem is not a lint build up in the discharge hose or the dryer,as this condition can cause heater/thermistor problems such as overheating of the heating coil leading to failure of the coil and burnout of the thermostat/thermistor due to overheat.
Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors.
>>>>>Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.<<<<<
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape.
If you have an ohm meter then you can test the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse,
then you do not have to tape the wires together as described above.
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor/thermal fuse as it is faulty.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST AS THIS COULD CAUSE A FIRE BECAUSE YOU HAVE REMOVED THE SAFETY.

If the thermal fuse overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
Right after replacing a dryer element, always run the dryer on 'air fluff' / 'no heat', and go outside to verify there's plenty of air coming out your vent system.
If the vent's clogged, that new element can burn out very quickly.

Samsung Dryer dv203aes/xac will not heat. Drum is rotating and lint was cleared from exhaust.


Check the following:
1. Does it have 220 volts (yes it runs, but dryers run on 110 volts)?
2. Check the heating element and the safety thermostats located on the heat element canister. Low air flow from any restriction like lint build up or mashed ducting or blocked air exhaust vent cap can either trip the safety stats or burn out the element. Clean dryer and exhaust ducting thoroughly and replace bad parts before placing back in service. Poor air flow is the number one problem with "No Heat" dryer issues.

Model #dv203aes/xac. it lights up the controls but it just counts down not spininng or heat.


Check for goop gum or junk on the wet sensor inside the dryer under back side of filter. If something is blocking dampness, the dryer analog monitor on the pc will send power to the count down timer for energy savings.

SAMSUNG MODEL DV218AEB/XAC LEAKING WATER


Dryers don't use water, washing machines do, so it's probably the washer.

If the dryer is drying, then it's not moisture.

Check the house drain for the washer, watch it drain and make sure it's not backing up, check the drain hose.

Thanks I thought it might be the inlet valve, but to get access to it behind the top panel, Is there a trick to removing the panel? I have removed the three screws behind the detergent drawer but the panel...


Hi, you will need to unstack the dryer unfortunately, then remove the three screws at the back of the top washer panel and it will slide back about 2 or 3cm and up away from the unit. Then you will see how to remove the valve. Hope that answers your question. Thanks for visiting "fixya". Let me know if you require any further assistance and good luck. Macmarkus :)

Hello, I have a stacked Whirlpool washer/dryer. (Model # LTE6234DQ1) I wish to move it down a flight of stairs and want to know if this model can be easily 'unstacked' for the move. Thanks for your...


Hi there.

Yes it can.
Access bolts to the feet should be visible from the rear of the unit. Failing that, the top screws of the bottom appliance should undo, and the top appliance (with lid of lower one) should slide back 1" allowing it to be taken off.

Be careful not to damage this lid section in the move, and further removal can restore it back to two appliances again.

If this helps, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

HOW TO UNSTACK A WASHER AND DRYER


Chainsaw, no seriously the dryer is bolted to the washer and not all of them can be unstacked. Remove the front panel of the dryer to expose the bolts holding it down. this only works if your washer is of the front loading type. if it is a top loader there should be some sort of frame the dryer is bolted to. after removing the dryer from a front load stack washer, the washer may or may not have a top panel on it
