The dryer got wet and now it does not turn on.

My daughter put a thick blanket in the dryer that she did not let the washer completely spin the water out and it was completely wet. Now the dryer will not turn on at all. What could be wrong?

Hi,
I have kids too... :o)
It's possible that water got on some electricals in the dryer and caused the circuit breaker to trip. Hopefully this is a quick remedy. If this is the case, give the DRYER time to dry before restting the breaker.
Hope this helps you... Good luck!

Hi i have samsung dryer it work fine but it doesn't dry sheets and blanket verry well??


This can be because blankets and sheets tend to absorb more water and do not dry well in a spin dryer. Check that your spin cycle on the washer is putting out enough spin to centripetal dry your blankets and sheets.

Clothes are to wet after spin cycle


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Not enough water to wet all the clothes.


Either the water level switch has bad calibration or the water level tube has lost its air seal and needs to be refitted and air locked. If you do not know how to go about these tasks, call someone with experience. Goodluck, Macgivor

My daughter in put a load of wet clothes (not completely finished spin cycle). Now dryer doesn't heat the clothes but seems to have all other functions.


Try running the dryer empty to see if the elements are heating. With the weight of wet clothes it is possible to trip the overloads.

Towels come out soaking wet, too wet to put in dryer. When placed back in dryer, noticed the spin cyle runs slowly, never spinning fast. The drum itself isn't solid, but oscillates when spinning.

My daughter put a big blanket int he washer. it started and then after a few minutes it stopped. I had to untangle the blanket after the motor stop working. now it will not even turn on. I am thinking


Hi, When the washer is in spin mode, do you hear the motor running at all. It could be the lid switch has broke. I do not believe it will be a motor.
To test the lid switch, Remove the screws located on the back of the control panel on each end.
Lift the control panel and let it rest on the hinges. The lid switch is located to the left and has a three wire harness. Unplug the washer before you unplug the harness and put an insulated wire between the two gray wires (not the green stipe wire)
If you can jump this, turn the timer back into spin cycle and see if it starts.
Please let me know if it helps or if I can assist you further.

Clothes were still very wet when cycle completed


When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Spins very slow on rinse/drain and spin


Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it. Pl rate me if helped.
