Why won't my Whirlpool Senseon Dryer start? The control panel will not respond. No buttoms will light up or beep. The dryer has power and the door latch works properly and the light comes on inside

Always disconnect power before attempting any service. Most electric dryers require 240 volts to operate properly.
You may have only 120 volts to supply the dryer which will give you your symptoms. Click dryer circuit breaker off then back on to reset 240 volt system.Still no heat/run

My electrical cable needed to be replaced-no power. Replaced the power connections into the same color coded place as before. I have power but now i have no heat. Now im lost-

Have you got 240 volts coming from the electrical service panel. The motor runs on 120 volts, the heater is on a different circuit requiring 240 volts.

120v on bake element red wire and element wont heat up

the reason its not heating is because you will always have 120 volts on this red wire due to its being connected directly to one side of the in coming power source,its either that you lost the other 120 volts of power coming into the unit,a tripped breaker/fuse/etc. or the control board relay that supplies the other 120 volts to the element for a combined 240 volts needed to heat the element,if you have 240 volts to the connection to the unit then you either a bad control board or the Neutral incoming power wire could be burned off which you need to get 120 volts to operate the control board which operate the relay to supply the element with the required 240 volts to operate

I live in germany (military) what is the power 120-240?

Good day!! The 120-240 power simply means the supply of your TV can be plug in to 120 Volts AC to 240 Volts AC that will come out to your outlet.For example your outlet is 120 Volts AC you can plug in your TV in there.In short your TV supply is auto-volt.
I hope this information could help you.Thank you.

Model pye2000ayw my dryer will not turn on. the timer seems to tick, which indicates there i s power (i assume), and when i press the timer knob to start the machine, it does not start.

make sure first that you have 240 volts to the machine from the house power panel, if so,then it could be a drum belt broken the dryer motor isnt turning or the dryer drum idler tensioner pulley is bad or the belt is off the pulley on either the motor or idler,you need to remove the top and front covers to examine this

220 appliances in house all out.lights up but either dont heat or wont bake .lightning could be culprit but never lost tv reception.dryer runs ,no heat.water heater out.stove lights up wont get hot.shut...

Sounds like you have lost one leg of your power

Think of it like this

You an upside down "Y" at the top of your breaker panel
220 - 240 volts come in the Y and break in half 120 volts to each leg of the "Y"
A 220 Volt breaker straddles both legs a 110 volt breaker only contacts one leg
I suspect that you have lost one leg
Possibly at the main breaker ( top most)( main disconnect) in your panel
If you have a tester with the capacity to test 240 you can test the two top lugs where the main wire comes in Test them together That is one probe of your tester on each wire you should show 240+/- volts
Then you can move down through the panel 120 +/- on each leg
Hope this helps if you need more just let me know

Ac unit will not come on

pull the fuse/breaker disconnect panel outside by unit and main breaker inside,remove compressor access panel,re-power unit trace your thermostat wires to the terminals by compressor and short the two term together and see if unit starts,sounds as though you broke wire in more than one place.good luck be careful doing this,its 240 volts at most compressors on a central A/C

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.
