First thing to check is look for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted connections in the dryer power socket. You need a voltmeter for this. If no 220 volts, check the house electrical panel to see if the dryer circuit breakers (pair) have tripped--push them OFF, then ON. Recheck for 220 volt at the dryer socket. If voltage is still missing, you may have one or two bad breakers--replace the pair. If ok, try the dryer. If it starts, then quits, you have a short inside the dryer--likely the heating element. Nearly full tear down to get to the dryer element in back of the drum. Weigh repair cost versus a new dryer. Hope this helps!

Dryer does not heat correctly code F31


The thermostat which is a round 2 wire control on the blower box on the back of the dryer controls the heat on all dryers. always shut off power when checking any electrical appliance. Clothes dryers are wired with 2 voltages, The 240 volt supply is for the heating element only, while the 120 volt supply gives power to the timer and motor that spins the drum and powers any lights and switches. If the heating element is coming on, try replacing the thermostat. As always unplug the dryer first.

What is automatic dry miser


Hello,
What the automatic dry miser is, is a sensor that measure how dry the clothes are and will adjust the time its going to take to dry the clothes throughout the entire cycle. If at the beginning it estimate it will take 40 minutes to sry a load but they are dry in only 25 minutes the dryer knows the clothes are dry and cuts the dryer off. Saving 15 minutes of unneeded gas and electric that it would run and waste power and gas since the clothes were dry already.

Dryer keeps drying long after clothes are actually dry.


Bad timer most likely, remove power and check continuity on the timer motor. Verify movement of dial.

We just moved and hooked up our dryer and it wont dry our clothes


1ST CHECK POWER OUTLET IF YOU HAVE ELECTRIC DRYER, IT SHOULD HAVE 220V COMING OUT FROM OUT LET. IF POWER IS OK AND HEATING BUT LONG TIME TO DRY THEN CHECK YOU DRYER VENT.
IF YOYR DRYER VENT AND POWER IS OK, THEN IT COULD BE ONE OF THE HI LIMIT OR YOU HAVE BAD HEATING ELEMENT
