Question about Dryers

1 Answer

It stopped drying. I called a repair guy thinking it was just the element that needed replacing but he said there are other things that can keep it from heating up besides the element. Can you help me?

Dryer overheating on timed dry/no heat settings


Replace the thermostat. A very inexpensive thermocouple that is not sensing the heat anymore and caused the element to overheat. In the UK the part will cost less than five pounds!
If the element had touched the ground, your safety earth leakage breaker in the fuse box would have tripped.

Why would an electric oven stop working? I tested the element


There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode ( the small metal piece that the spark comes off from ) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes and NOT a tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse. Example of a burner. The next thing to check for are theignition switches under the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a bad spark module, replace it. Sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches, try drying them with an hair dryer to see of this will help. Repair and checking tips for surface burners.

Heating element replacement


Without knowing more details (make, model, gas or electric), it's difficult to tell, but if you want know what part you need, you can visit repairclinic.com and they'll have parts listed AND photos of what the parts look like so you'll get the right thing.
It's definitely worth a look and a little effort. I find it hard to believe that you couldn't fix it cheaper than replacemtent of the dryer...
I think you're wise to ask this question...
Good luck on this... and let me know if you need more assistance.

No cooling


Call a service person--if this happened rather suddenly, it is likely a refrigerant gas leak. Unplug the unit for now to save the compressor. Buy some dry ice to keep things cold while waiting for repairs.

MY DRYER DOESN'T GET HOT


There are a few things to check out. 1. This may seem obvious, but make sure your temperature switch is not pointed to "fluff/air dry".
2.Is the motor running? It has to, to dry three. Make sure your door switch is engaging properly.
3. If you are so inclined, unplug the power cord and remove the back lower panel of the dryer.) Remove the vent pipe & allow the unit to run, if you now have the proper heat this means the vent is block, check the outside vent hood, the sometimes have a screen just inside that will block up not allowing for air flow.


Check all wire connections to make sure they are attached properly. If they are burned or worn, they need to be repaired or replaced. Any disruption of the circuit to the dryer element will stop its functioning.
4. Next, look for the thermostat.. which is usually a small circular metal device attached to the dryer element canister. Unscrew it and shake it slightly. You should hear a clicking noise. This should indicate that your thermostat is working (but not always!).
5. Remove the heater element canister cover and check to see that there is continuity of the element wires (no breaks). If there is a break, it needs to be repaired of replaced. You can take the heater element to a repair shop and be tested for current. If you think that you can repair any of this on your own, then go for it. Always think safety first before proceeding

Dishwasher does not dry the dishes thoroughly


I have a GE dishwasher with poor drying. One service call said to make your water hotter and us a jet dry rinse. Not any better. Another call went to GE, this time they have a vent kit to help push out the steam and the computer will be reprogrammed to allow a longer dry time. Will have this done when the parts arrive at my home. Then the repair man will install and make computer adjustments. Looks like GE knows they have a problem but won't fix it until you complain more than once and demand a fix. For all GE dishwasher owners with this problem start calling the customer service.
