Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

This is a Stackable Dryer. It is completely dead. I have a multimeter, so I checked Voltage at the Back of the Dryer, got the 220v. Also checked continuity on the Thermal fuses, measured ok.

How about the start switch itself? Are you getting a reading when you engage it? I suspect that the switch is bad.

Stackable kenmore dryer wont heat

If the dryer runs, then the 240 volt supply should be okay. If the dryer doesn't run, then the L2 leg of voltage could be missing. You would need to check the voltage at the outlet using the third image below if this is the case. You should only make this live voltage check at the outlet if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. If the outlet is bad, it will need to be repaired by an electrician.

You could have a blown thermal fuse in the dryer that will prevent it from heating. . Unplug the dryer and access this fuse by following the procedure in the first image. The thermal fuse should be on the back of the blower housing. I will likely have black and red wires attached to it. To check this fuse, pull the wires off (with the dryer still unplugged) and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open) then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.

Stackable frigidaire dryer

The motor winding won't have a large resistance but should have some. Be sure and unhook wires and set your meter to the lowest setting and 0 it. Be sure you are checking the correct connections.

Fluke 179 multimeter showing wrong reading in AC, DC voltage, rest every thing working ok

input protection circuit is blown , see if you can find fusible resistor and check for open circuit (should be 1kOhm) - big resistor on the right straight from the Volts input

I have a Maytag Neptune Dryer that won't heat. we replaced the thermistor and the control board. What else could it be?

First unplug dryer and test your heating element for continuity with a multimeter if it has more than about 30ohms it is bad.Next check for 220v-240v at the heating element with the dryer running (This is not a test for an amateur. If you are not familiar with electricity I would recommend calling a service tech. If you have 220v-240v there and no heat the heating element is most likely bad. If not then trace the wires back to find the open circuit could be a thermostat or the thermal fuse or just a loose wire/bad connection.

Where is the circuit breaker or fuse on a Kenmore Gas Dryer?

no heat usually means your only getting110 volts into your need the full 220volts to run heaters....with voltage meter you checkwires on the plug OUTLET...or inside back cover REDwire to WHITEwire =110v.........BLACKwire to WHITEwire =110v.....REDwire to BLACKwire =220v. you probably have aBAD 220V. 30 amp circut breaker..or if still using FUSES one is burnt out (In house electric panel) or burnt off RED or BLACKwire in back of dryer.....

My kenmore dryer is running but not heating - model # 110.66642501 - is 3 years old

CHeck if you have 220v at the dryer. The motor is 110 the heater is 220. If you have this then you'll have to access the inside and test the voltage at the heater with the unit turned on and running. If you have voltage then at the heater your element is probably bad but sometimes there is a safety fuse or switch inside or on the element case.

If you don't have 220v at the element with it runnign the typical items are the timmer, the safety(s) switches, the opperating thermostat, the motor cintrifgal switch and there may be more. Consult your diagram for complete circutry.

My 38 hdc 024 carrier unit outside will not run

Tip: Never complete a 220v< circuit with your vascular system.
New Unit? wow wheres the installer? kk I'm assuming thats a dead end for some reason. Check for 220v at the compressor relay. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say your not getting the 220v power that you need to operate the unit. Do you have other 220v appliances such as a dryer or stove, if they are working properly that means that both legs of the 220v are making it from the pole to the house. Is the wiring in the breaker panel to the breaker that protects your condenser secure and tight. Are you getting 220v to that breaker? Is the wiring in the disconnect box by the condenser secure and tight? Are you getting 220v there? Is the connections to the compressor relay secure and tight are you getting 220v there. Is the compressor relay closing and are you getting 220v to the compressor? See how this works. Lol, Fun isn't it GL I hope this helped.
