My white knight tumble dryer wont start

Nothing works or drum fails to turn (tumble dryers)
Ensure that the power supply to the dryer is switched on, the timer is set to the desired drying time and the door is correctly closed. If you have a condenser model, also check that the bottle is empty and is fully pushed into the machine.

The first thing to establish when troubleshooting the clothes dryer is whether the dryer will start or not. If it won't, start by checking the outlet and the circuit breaker. Is the dryer plugged in or has it tripped the circuit breaker? If the breaker has been tripped, flip it back on and try the dryer again. The drum should turn without a problem.
If both plug and breaker are fine, you'll need to inspect the door switch as you continue to troubleshoot the tumble dryer. When you close the door on the dryer, a plastic peg should click and operate the switch which allows the dryer to work. The peg might be bent or broken, in which case it won't connect with the switch. You can try to straighten the peg, but if it's broken, you'll need to replace it. If the peg is fine, the switch has probably failed and will need to be replaced.

Good luck!

This is a sprinkler timer: Irri-Trol MC plus SERIES CONTROLLERS. When the timer starts, it will go smoothly from stations 1 through 5. At station 5, the timer goes off because a trip switch inside...

Move the wire from Station 5 terminal to Station 6 terminal, remove time from Station 5 and put time on Station 6 and see if that helps. It sounds like the timer is tripping a circuit breaker and normally they don't draw that much power. If the problem continues on Station 6, replace the solenoid to the valve for that station. Even so, I have never heard of a timer tripping a breaker.

Intermatic Model T101. It keeps time. But won't turn pool equip on. The manual override option doesn't turn equip on either. Does this suggest there is a wiring problem elsewhere and not an...

It could mean several things. If could be mean that your manual "trips" are failing to make the electrical connection to the load. Which would usuall mean that the "trip" was not tightened down or that the load side electrical connection is loose or corroded. If you put a meter on the load side and hit the manual override you should read line voltage (120v). If you have it there, then the problem is with the equipment hooked to it, if you don't have it there, then the problem is in the timer so check the "trips".

Black Peg on timer

We just used to use a sliver of bamboo, just make a piece and sand it down, bit by bit, until it is a Tight fit in the hole you want about 5mm to protrude, through the bottom, that is what "Trips" the "Contacts" inside. So anything similar will work too. Just remember whatever you use, has to protrude a little bit inside the face of the Dial. & be strong enough, not to break when pushing the Contact.

No water entering

COLINSPARK; The timer is the connected to the back of the control dial. (the door) If nothing is working, Don't forget about the door switch, If you had a short that tripped the breaker, I bet its there somewhere. The float switch is underneath. remove the front panel under the door, the float switch is activated by that little bulb inside the machine. If you lift the bulb up and down, you should be able to hear the switch clicking. If its clicking and has power going into and out of it (when its down down) its not the float switch. I bet the schematic is on the backside of the panel underneath the door.

RKIRK2K;.. This irregular problem does, unfortunately point to the timer/selector control. Before you commit to this expensive part. Check the door switch, it can make the same symptoms. Remove the panel on the door, find the little switch and by-pass the wires going to it by connecting them together. This this is a part that is usually $100 less than the timer. The resistance on the timer control can vary depending on what its set. But it is very refreshing having someone who can actually read one. If they have one I'm happy.
