Question about Kenmore 64902 Electric Dryer

I own a GE #DVL223EB1WW electric dryer that is approx 7 yo. The terminal block was replaced about 1 year ago. Now, the block needs replaced again. Is this a chronic problem with GE electric dryers?

What do you mean by terminal block?
Where the wires are connected from the outlet?

Is this a 3 or 4 wire connection?

Thanks!!

    A terminal block connects the 3-wires from the power cord to the dryer where other wires are connected to the other side of the block that run the machine; i.e. motor, timer, start/stop.

General Electric DVL223EB1WW Electric dryer no longer heats up. Still blows air, cold, but no heat?? Any suggestion?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Have ge dryer changing from 3 prong power cord to four prong need diagram


The main difference between a 3-wire and 4-wire configuration is how the Neutral and Ground wires are terminated at the temrinal block. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r793520-3_prong_4_prong_power_cord_conversion

In a 3-wire configuration Neutral (WHITE) and Ground (GREEN or BARE COPPER) are terminated TOGETHER at the terminal block via a ground strap.

In a 4-wire configuration these two wires are independent of each other are NOT terminated together.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat


Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...

GE Dryer not producing heat


First, replace the door switch. Second, check the wiring of the new cord. It should be as follows:
Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)
Third, if you still have no heat, make sure there is strong air flow out the vent outside the house when the dryer is running. If all that is good, check for 240 volts to dryer. (dryers can run the motor on 120, but need 240 to heat). Comment back (including model number) if you have further questions.

F3 code and beeping


F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor. Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control. · Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace.
If all above is ok replace control.

Electric dryer internal short


Make sure that the dryer is disconnected from the wall outlet before doing any repairs on it. Electric dryer work on 240 volts AC and this could hurt or even kill you. loose connection on the terminal block will cause the wires to get hot. and melt the terminal block and wires and the pig tail wires. you will have to replace the terminal block and pig tail wires and make sure you use the correct bolts and make sure you tighen them. let me know if this helps.krazytech
