Yes, the knobs don't like to be turned counterclockwise. Spin the knob clockwise to reinstall tightly, then move to set a dry time. Make sure half load button is pressed.

On dryers with the old mechanical timers you can turn the knob in either direction without harming the mechanism. On either type, even electronically controlled models with a problem like you described, there are a lot of possibilities. After confirming you have power to the appliance check the thermal safety fuse located on the heater housing.

We have put a new belt and bearing on my 4kg Simpson eziloader dryer and spring is in place it works for a while and then the belt comes off again what could the problem be

I would check the pulley on the motor, and the belt tensioner that the belt winds through. My initial thought is that when installing the belt onto the tensioner it may have been bent. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Hi I have a Simpson 4kg eziloader dryer that keeps tripping the power mains . Would this be the timer ?

The heating element uses the most power. Was the home wired by a licensed election ( the dryer plug)? if it was it should have #8 or #10 wire depending on the load. the breaker is sized to the wire (so don't change it). you may have a clogged vent pipe. this will reduce air flow and make the dryer work harder possibly tripping the breaker. You should probably start by making sure you vent is clear and free from debris, debris in the vent could cause a fire.

My amana DLG330RAW dryer won't stay on. it has a combo timer and start dial turn the dial to the timed settinG and push...dryer starts part way through the cycle, the dryer...

Hello PB,

What i would most suspect as being the problem of why the dryer just stops randomly before the cycle is done,is a problem with the door switch or the door catch...does the dryer restart as soon as you restart it?? if yes i would check that the door catch was broken so the door will pop open stopping the dryer. Also check the door switch using a meter set to measure ohms and see if the contact is burnt ( a good door switch will be zero ohms resistiance)

Impson Eziloader 4kg, drum will not self start - goes with a push-start until stops to change direction but then won't start again and need to push. Has been overloaded at some stage?

I believe there is a capacitor on your motor(7-10 MFD) I would replace this and then ensure that the drum is reversing properly. It is usually just a short 2 to 3 turns, and the "normal" direction is much longer. This is done via a small motorized unit, usually called a "MOTOR TIMER", and the contacts inside it can get a bit burned an pitted if running for a while with a deteriorated start capacitor. If the motor and drum seem OK, but it does not reverse, you might need to change that unit. More expensive dryers might have a timer relay for this, or an electronic timer activating the relay.I hope this helped Tim
