Question about Dryers
PUT YOUR DRYER ON AIR FLUFF AND TURN IT ON. THEN SELECT A HEAT SETTING. IF YOU HEAR A DISTINCTIVE CLICK WHEN YOU SELECT HEAT, THEN CHECK FOR A GLOWING IGNITOR. MOST KENMORE/WHIRLPOOL DRYERS HAVE A PEEP HOLE IN THE FRONT LEFT SIDE OF THE DRYER. REMOVE A PLASTIC COVER TO VIEW INSIDE.
IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, AND THEN CLICKS OFF, YOU HAVE A BAD SOLENOID (COIL SETTING ON TOP OF THE VALVE). IF IT NEVER CLICKS OFF, YOU HAVE A BAD RADIANT SENSOR( LOCATED ON THE SIDE OF THE BURNER HOUSING). IF NO IGNITOR GLOWING, THE IGNITOR IS BAD.
IF WHEN YOU SELECT HEAT, THERE ISN'T ANY CLICK, THEN THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED BEHIND THE BACK PANEL DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST IS BAD. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO THIN WIRES ATTACHED TO IT.
