If the lid switch is defective, the washer will not function or work at all. It is located inside the washer main housing near the door frame. When you close the door, the switch is activated by an actuator. You have to raise or open the top or front panel of the machine to reach the switch. Replace if found defective.

Noisy and wont dry! Mod # FDG336RES1 Ser. # XD85136300


Hello Cynthia J Valenzuela - From what you have described it sounds like you either have a problem with the belt, front and/or rear bearing, or a loose connection with the motor or drum. If the unit is no longer heating it could also possibly have a defective control board, power supply, heating element, sensor or high limit thermostat. I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the issue, the part(s) may have to be replace depending if they are worn, damaged or loose.

I have a Whirlpool dryer...Mod nu# WED5800SQ0,


Sounds like your capacitor has stopped functioning. Most dryers have capacitors ranging from 8 to 10 ohms which store energy and give the drum the initial energy boost to start it turning. Unplug the machine and take off the side that contains the motor. in there you will find a small cylindrical object with two connections, thats your capacitor, replace it

GE Dryer MOD: BBXR463ED2WW SER: ZH775302A Dryer is getting louder when in use it creams when in use. think it might need a belt? other problem: When I turn the controll settings it goes on without turning...


The roller for the belt tensioner has a bad bearing. replace that item as well as the belt
The start button is stuck to the start position so replace that as well
The top & front panel will need to come off to repair both items

Want a wiring diagram for hotpoint dryer, mod#DLB2750BAL.ser#AD 209876H dryer wont run after starting


Make sure the belt is good. These dryers have a belt switch located near the motor. If the belt is broken the dryer will not run.The belt switch could be bad also. Also check the door switch.
Verify 220 volts of power at the terminal where the cord attaches to the dryer.
