Question about Electrolux Dryers
ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:
Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)
Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or overheating.
Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,
Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.
Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Hello Paul, thanks for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux top load washer is spinning but not agitating. It sounds like a possible problem with your agitator, motor, or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging your power cord for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a professional technician come out for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information was helpful. -Matt

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Electrolux range burner buttons are remaining on. I have identified a few possibilities as faulty burner buttons, bad switches, or a disruption inside the control panel. Let's perform a reset on your range which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue I would suggest consulting with a professional for proper repair. Hopefully this helps. -Matt
