Question about Dryers

3 Answers

I have bought a house with an Inglis Royal 100 clothes dryer in it. I am not sure which of the 5 temp settings is the high heat. From left to right it goes from yellow to brown to red. I can't find the manual on line - Inglis must be under some other company's umbrella. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Margaret mlwalline@gmail.com

Red means hot and yellow means warm according to the washer Royal 100 manual. There is no explanation in the dryer manual

Greetings mlwalline, I am wondering the same thing. Mine is also 2nd hand. I was fine with using the button on the farthest left, the yellow button, but now I need to be sure I've got the hottest setting because of a bed bug problem. One would think that red would be for the hottest setting, but the permanent press button is also red, and I would have thought that would have needed a much cooler setting.
Anyway, i am surpised there is so little info on the net about this.
I am using the yellow setting for now, and will switch to the red after about 30 mins.

Whirlpool dryer times jump on high temp from 50 to 29 takes three cycles to dry cloths.


Check that the heating element is working. Then check the exhaust flue of dryer to make sure that it is not clogged. If it is the clothing will stay damp and the room housing the dryer will get hot and muggy.

Electric dryer getting way too hot

3-5 ACCESS TO THE BLOWER WHEEL OR THERMOSTATS

To get to the blower wheel, remove the back of the dryer.

The blower wheel is under the bottom of the lint screen duct to your left, as you look at the back of the dryer.

The operating thermostats are at the blower wheel outlet.

In electric models, the hi-temperature cutout thermostat is mounted to the heat riser.

3-6 TEMPERATURE CONTROLS AND HI-TEMP SAFETIES

These clothes dryer machines use operating thermostats to control the temperature inside the drum, and hi-limit thermostats to prevent overheating of the dryer drum.. Many machines also have extra temperature controls, such as bias thermostats and heaters, hi-temperature cutoffs, and thermal fuses.

Bias thermostats are just like regular operating thermostats, except that they are mounted inside a bias heater. When the bias heater is energized, it generates a small amount of heat, which causes the operating thermostat to open sooner, keeping the dryer drum cooler inside. Thus a bias heater allows a single operating thermostat to act like both a hi-temp and a lo-temp operating thermostat.

A thermal fuse is found on the blower outlet, right next to the operating thermostat(s.) This fuse will blow when too high a temperature is sensed at the outlet; usually when one of the operating thermostats has failed. If it blows, the motor may not start, or you may get no heat (no voltage to the burner.)

A thermal cut-off is mounted on the clothes dryer heater box. It is a back-up for the hi-limit thermostat. Whenever you replace it, you should replace the hi-limit thermostat, too. A high-temperature condition causes it to open, an overheated grounded heat element may also cause it to open.

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Inglis clothes dryer heats up but drum doesn't


The way to visually see if the belt has broken or not is to 1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) You'll now see the drum, if the belt is not around it its broken, and if it's visible try to lift it. If it taught, its good. IF THE BELT IS BROKEN OR LOOSE CONTINUE TO NEXT STEPS 6) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 7) once off you'll be able to easily see the motor, the belts idler pulley, and everything else.

I just bought a gas dryer - takes forever to dry clothes


check the high limit switch/thermostat on the burner housing and if they are weak they will cycle the heat off too soon and it wont build the heat you have it set for,just bypass it with a jumper wire to test it,if this is the problem,dont leave it bypassed,replace it as it is a safety feature to prevent a fire

Slow to dry cloths


Remove the vent from the back of the dryer and see what the temps are. The cycling (or operating) thermostat is on the blower housing and opens more than 100* lower than the 266 you are reading. That, combined with the long dry times indicates an airflow issue. Check your lint screen....fabric sheet and lint can combine to coat and restrict air flow through it. Also check down in the blower housing with the lint screen removed. You'll see lint build up by looking down the slot with a flashlight. If it's restricted, so is the blower wheel and the blower housing. Also make sure the flap, or lovers at the vent hood outside are opening fully. Remove any accumilation of lint from there.

The high limit control is just that........If you cycling thermostat has failed, or does not open because there is no airflow, the limit control opens as a safety. On a normally operating dryer, the high limit control will never open.

The neptune dryer is designed to move more air than a regular dryer due to the higher capacity load it get's from the neptune washer. That is the case with most front load laundry pairs.

Inglis Dryer


You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts

Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few

I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,

If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.

Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity
