Question about Dryers
Over the last couple weeks I've noticed the clothes not drying completely by the end of the cycle. Now the dryer doesn't start but I can feel the start button vibrating. I tried all settings, button still vibrates a bit but no start. Any suggestions before I start replacing parts, starting with the heating coil??
*Maybe my imagination but I thought there was an electrical smell. I unplugged the dryer.
dryer working fine earlier now wont start
IF THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST(LINT BUILDUP OR FOLDED FLEX ATTACHED TO THE DRYER AND PUSHED UP AGAINST THE WALL) THE DRYER WILL NOT DRY PROPERLY. IF THE PROBLEM IS NOT FIXED, A THERMAL FUSE WILL OPEN SHUTTING DOWN THE CIRCUIT TO THE MAIN MOTOR. THE THERMAL FUSE IS A SMALL WHITE OBJECT LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK PANEL DOWN BY THE EXHAUST OUTLET. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF IT IS BAD, REPLACE IT AND CHECK THE DUCT WORK FOR ANY RESTRICTIONS.
PART COST APPROX 30 DOLLARS
