You have to use a multimeter to troubleshoot the problem. Could be one of several different components that have failed.

Frigidaire affinity electric dryer It was working fine but has suddenly quit. No power nothing at all


Hi Dan Flynn - Try reprogramming the dryer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes, restart unit and select a normal cycle. If it proves to be ineffective, I suggest cleaning the lint screen/filter. Also check that the power cord is not damaged. Otherwise the dryer may possibly be experiencing more serious issues such as; wiring failure, faulty control board, thermal limiter, or defective door switch. Should all basic troubleshooting measures fail, I strongly recommend contacting a local professional for a further diagnosis. You can often locate qualified servicers by visiting the manufacturer directly.

The dryer just stopped working> It's about 4 years old. Working one minute and not the next. no clicking sound when you turn the timer dial. Could it be bad dial?


Not usually a dial problem. First make sure your breaker is not tripped. If the dryer was working fine and suddenly nothing works its usually a power problem. The other problem to check is the door switch. If its not the breaker/fuse panel let me know.

My Kenmore Dryer stops before the time I set is up.


Sounds like the operating thermastat may be bad letting it get too hot and causing the motor breaker to kick out . When it cools it will start again. Check all thermastats.

Blowing breaker


hi. I can help you.

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. To decide where the problem lies, unplug the dryer, then:


  • If the circuit breakers or fuses remain on and/or intact when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the dryer. Contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Longest 6 minutes ever


I wiped off the two rows of sensors located behind the lint trap inside the drum. Now my dryer shuts off at 0 minutes. The clothes are still a little bit damp so I let the dryer run for 10 more minutes. Try it before replacing the computer board.
