The dryer seems to be dead. It will not power up. The 240 volt outlet has be checked and is okay. Could the circuit board be bad or is there some fuses that I need to replace?

    There is a possibility that there was a power surge in the house that caused something. Should I just replace the circuit board?

Sometime with these units you need to check the thermostat relay if they are not functioning correctly this will prevent the dryer from running

I do not believe this model has fuses. The only way to identify the problem is to use a multimeter and troubleshoot the circuit. The connection to the terminal block could be bad or loose, could be a sensor, but one needs to troubleshoot the circuit.

Lead display is keep on flashing up on start sequence


Have you tried checking the fuse or the circuit breaker? Are both the washer and dryersharing the same two outlet duplex outlet or are they on two totally separate outlets? Just to eliminate/isolate the outlet question after you check the circuit breakers or fuses in your fuse box, try plugging the dryer into a separate outlet. If like many people you do not have an extra outlet in your laundry area, try plugging another item into the dryer outlet to check it for power. This is if you are talking about a gas dryer that works on a 120-volt electrical outlet. If it is an electric dryer it will be on a 230-240 volt outlet with a special plug. If you have an old circuit panel that is still using fuses as opposed to modern circuit breakers and if this Is an electric dryer, you would have a 240 volt disconnect plug more than likely inside the panel and if you firmly grab the handle and yank it straight out, you will see that the disconnect plug will have two short cigar shaped Buss Fuses in it. If this is the case one or more of those fuses could be blown. Depending on the electrical requirements of the dryer those two fuses amy need to be between 20-30Amp rated. or else if you have the manual take a look in it , perhaps one of the fuses is gone .

How to install new circuit breaker, wiring, and outlet for washer and dryer


Electric dryers require both 240-volt and 120-volt circuits in order to work. The 240 volts are used to heat up the elements that ultimately dry your clothes and the 120-volt circuit is needed to deliver power to the timers, buzzer and controls. This does not mean that you have to run two independent circuits, however. All that is required is a dryer receptacle fed by a three-conductor wire or 10/3g wire. Here is how to wire a dryer receptacle.i think it will work.

My dryer blows no hot air


HI

THE DRYER HEATER OPERATES ON 240VOLTS. CHECK TO BE SURE YOU HAVE 240 VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. WITH ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE CIRCUIT, THE MOTOR WILL RUN ON 120 VOLTS, BUT THE HEAT CIRCUIT WILL NOT.

MOST DRYERS HAVE A HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT NEAR THE HEATER ASSEMBLY. SOME HAVE A THERMAL FUSE AS WELL. THE HIGH LIMIT WILL CYCLE, BUT THE THERMAL FUSE WILL NOT RESET. CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE IT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NOT, TRACE BACK THROUGH THE CIRCUIT UNTIL YOU FIND THE COMPONENT WITH THE 240 VOLTS ACROSS IT.
THAT WILL BE THE BAD COMPONENT.

MAKE SURE THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS SET FOR HEAT.
OITHER ITEM IN THE HEAT CIRCUIT:
CYCLING THERMOSTAT, TIMER, SELECTOR SWITCH, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH.

A diagram of how to wire a 220 volt outlet from two 110 volt outlets.


You can't really do that. The two 110 outlets probably come for the same 'leg' of the 240. If you check them with a meter, there will be '0' volts between the two hot wires. So, they have the same 'potential'. You need a regular 240 volt circuit from a double pole breaker that is rated for the wire size that it's feeding. 20 amp-#12 ; 30 amp- #10 etc.

Dryer will not start


It is possible that the door switch is defective. Switch is on inside of front panel. If so you have to dismantle dryer to remove switch.This switch will prevent motor from starting. Is timer running? You should be able to hear small motor running near timer. If not, make sure 240 volt breaker is not tripped. Dryer motor and timer only run on 120 volts and heating element uses 240 volts. So, if one side of 240 volt circuit is dead it may be the side of the circuit that powers motor. Try flipping breaker off and on again. If possible, check circuit with volt meter ONLY if you know how to. If not, get a tech to check out.

CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT DRYER ELEMENT WITH DRYER
RUNNING IN HEAT CYCLE. IF NO VOLTAGE, CHECK WALL
OUTLET FOR 240 VOLTS BETWEEN LEFT AND RIGHT SLOTS IN RECEPTACLE. A DRYER WILL RUN ON 120 VOLTS TO
GROUND BUT WILL NOT HEAT IF 240 VOLTS IS NOT PRESENT. IF THERE IS 240 AT THE OUTLET, START TRACING THROUGH THE HEATER CIRCUIT. LOOK FOR A FAILED THERMOSTAT OR THERMAL FUSE NEAR THE HEATER OR EXHAUST OUTLET. CHECK THEM WITH A CONTINUITY TEST WITH DRYER UNPLUGGED, OR A VOLTAGE CHECK WITH A HOT CIRCUIT.

MY LG DLE5977 Electric Dryer will not power on


Check the junction connection behind the dryer where the power cord and terminal block to make sure that the screws are tight.  Then use a volt meter to check for voltage.  The 2 outside wires should be hot leads and the center is neutral.  Check hot to hot and you should get 240 volts.  Check hot to neutral and you should get 120 volts.  If you get those voltage readings, then you have a control board malfunction and needs to be replaced.  There is no reset switch within the dryer for the control board.

Kenmore 86980100 dryer no heat


NO HEAT, CHECK THE FOLLOWING:
1. CHECK SETTINGS OF THE SELECTOR SWITCH. MAKE SURE A HEAT SETTING HAS BEEN SELECTED.
2. IF IT IS AN ELECTRIC DRYER, CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE OUTLET.
3. CHECK THE HEATING ELEMENT FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE ELEMENT WHILE THE DRYER IS RUNNING. IF NO 240 VOLTS, TRACE WIRING BACK TO OTHER COMPONENTS OF THE HEAT CIRCUIT. WHEN YOU FIND 240 VOLTS ACROSS THAT COMPONENT, THAT IS THE BAD ITEM.
4. CHECK FOR BURNT WIRES IN THE HEAT CIRCUIT. (HEATER, THERMOSTAT, HIGH LIMIT THERMO, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, TIMER, THERMAL FUSE).

Maytag Dryer DE713 - Timer works, Tumbles all cycles but does not heat.


CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE OUTLET. A DRYER WILL RUN ON HALF THE 240 VOLT CIRCUIT BUT WON'T HEAT.
IF THE VOLTAGE IS THERE, CHECK FOR 240 VOLTS AT THE HEATER. IF IT IS THERE AT THE TERMINALS OF THE HEATER, AND THERE IS NO HEAT, THE HEATER IS BAD.
IF NO VOLTAGE IS PRESENT, TRACE BACKWARDS THROUGH THE HEAT CIRCUIT AND CHECK EACH COMPONENT IN THAT CIRCUIT. IF ONE OF THEM HAS 240 VOLTS PRESENT, THAT IS THE BAD COMPONENT.
POSSIBILITIES ARE, HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT, CYCLING THERMOSTAT, THERMAL FUSE, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, HEAT SELECTOR SWITCH, TIMER. POWER CORD.
