Re: no air blowing in dryer

These dryers are not much different mechanically then Kenmore 4-wheel units. One common problem I've seen with this design is lint buildup in the lint filter housing. Along with cleaning the entire machine and vent system regularly you can use a vacuum with crevice tool to get most of it. To clean it throroughly remove the front panel and two screws holding the filter housing near the top.
Remove the wire from the sensor on the upper right and lift the housing up and off the clip below. Another possibility is a problem with the blower. reach in from the vent and make sure its intact

Cloth not dry

Check for a build up of lint in the exhaust duct, an excessive build up will block air flow.

Also 220VAC electric dryers use different legs of the electrical supply. (two 110VAC legs tied via a common neutral make 220 VAC) One 110VAC leg runs the motor and controls while the other supplies power to the heater.

It is possible that one side of the 220VAC has a blown fuse and is not supplying power to the heater element.

Other possibilities:

Blown out heater - requires replacement

There is a safety switch attached to the shaft of the motor. THis switch relys on centrifical force to close and is intened to kill the power to the heater if the motor and its attached blower stop turning.

If the motor is not turning fast enough of the switch is worn then it is possible that power to the heater circuit is not being completed. It doesn't take must of a speed reduction to cause a problem. Lint build up on the drum bearings can cause enough drag to slow the drum slightly. Combined with a worn/dirty switch and the switch fails to operate.

Finally there is a blower attached to the motor shaft. The blower is made of plastic and somtimes the blower comes loose on the shaft. Usually you hear a rattling sound or sounds after the dryer drum stops as the loose spinning blower spins to a stop. ( A tight blower stops with the dryer drum) A loose blower doesn't move enough air and causes your dryer to run can find about uniforms:

Power From The House

Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door Switch

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dry to reach the switch. Check for continuity you should have none with door open, and should have a reading when closed. If not replace the door switc

Thermal Fuse / Thermal Cut out

On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel or behind the front panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing or is sometimes round and made of metal and plastic.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replace the fuse this is the most common reason for blowing the fuse. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)


Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Drying not taking place..... inside bucket only rotates

If the drum is rotating but the clothes are not drying, you have one of these problems:

  • Blower is loose on the motor shaft
  • Exhaust is plugged with lint
  • Heater is not working.
The quick check for the first two problems is to see if air is blowing out of the exhaust. If not, find out why.

If the air is cold, check the heater. In an electric dryer, the heater element could be burned out or one of the two thermostats (primary and safety) is open at room temperature (i. e., bad thermostat). In a gas dryer, the pilot ignitor or the gas valve is not working.

Can 3431 be converted to a regular vented dryer?

You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.

Tricity Bendix WDR1240W Condenser dryer problem

Check the fan that is supposed to blow the hot air into the drum. It may be seized or jammed. It should be situated on the top of the outer drum. You will need to remove the top cover from the machine and identify the blower fan.
