Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Why my interior light want come on!!??


Check the dome light switch. I believe its between the map lights in the front overhead console. You can set it to Always Off, On with Doors, or Always On.

The Dome light and the cargo area light should come on when the door is open and the switch is set to door position, or when set to the always on position.

If only one of the lights come on change the bulb of that light. If neither light comes on change the fuse.

I believe the instrument panel fuse block is located on the passenger side of the center console, to the left of the glove box near the floor. The cover usual lists where and what each fuse does. Look for Interior Lighting, I believe #23. Pull the fuse and check if its broken. If it is replace it. If not you may have electrical issues.

CTD85 tumble dryer: power is getting through to the machine but absolutely nothing happens


Hi.

If there is power then the door switch is probably broken. first make sure that there is power to the machine. The door switch is tested with power off, accessing switch contacts and reading Ohms with a multimeter. When door is closed the switch must have continuity, reading zero or few Ohms. With door open the switch contacts read infinity (circuit open).

If the door switch is OK, test power cord, main switch, wiring harness, motor and timer.

check for a bad door safety switch, you can locate the switch and the connection plug and unplug the switch, and add a jumper wire between the 2 connectors that lead away from the switch , spin, rinse, and drain, need this switch to work or the machine doesn't do those motions,

Will not switch on


HI, check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

No water


From what you've described, the problem may be a defective "door safety switch".

The purpose of the lid/door switch is to prevent injury when attempting to remove clothing articles when in the fast "spin-cycle" motion. I believe some models are now preventing the washer from working at all until repaired "mo money, mo faster!" ;)

I would access and test the lid/door switch for continuity; if defective, replace. Whats' the model # of your washer?
