Question about Estate TEDX640JQ Electric Dryer
When I push the start button I can hear the timer switch getting power and making noises, but nothing else happens. I can push and hold start button down and feel the power getting to timer, but nothing happens after that. If belt was broken would I still feel heat out of dryer?
The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.
