Question about Washing Machines
Hi! We have an Elextrolux stackable w/d model # GLEP1031CS0 and the dryer is not drying....The unit was used for about a year and worked GREAT, and was put into storage for about a year, and we just took it out of storage and the dryer works (runs) but does not get hot and dry the clothes. Is there a reset button on this model? Would that be the problem? What is your recommendation?
Actually on most models there are thermal fuses (nonresetable) that do shut only the heater down but on yours it shuts the entire machine down so it sounds like either you dont have 230v to the unit (what i mean is it is common for one line to have burned out either on the terminal block where the cord is attached or in the home wiring the washer and dryer motor will work because all that only needs one line to work) or the heater )the element) is bad. Tear down is not very easy since its a stackable.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello uucyc1 - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the washer tub bearing, belt, motor or trunnion (steel bar that secures the inner basket to the transmission shaft). As far as the dryer, long dry times typically are a result of poor air flow. Make sure that the dryer exhaust vent is completely clear and that the unit is not overloaded. I would suggest contacting an experiencing service technician to determine the precise cause to both units.
