Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I had to replace the 7 volt light bulb in the dryer. Lowes gave me a 6 volt and the bulb blew. No with a 7 volt it does not work. Do I have to re-wire or is there a reset switch on it somewhere?

    Cannot find the socket to replace the light bulb inside the dryer. This is a heavy duty GE dryer.

No reset check the bulb holder wiring for 120 volts to the socket
if 120 present unplug the dryer and inspect the socket for problems

My light bulb went out in my dryer and I bought a regular replacement bulb from home depot and it doesn't work. Does my dryer need a special bulb?


Hello Eric;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

In general all appliances require a special bulb; your oven, refrigerator - the bulbs are designed for the service - extreme hot or extreme cold.
These bulbs are expensive.

I NEED TO CHANGE LIGHT BULB WHERE WATER IS DISPENSED IN DOOR OF AMANA SXD26VW. PUT IN 12V - 6 WATT & IT BLEW THE BREAKER. WHAT SIZE BULB IS NEEDED. NO MARKINGS ON OLD BULB & NO OWNERS MANUAL.


It requires a 120 volt bulb. If it is a screw-base bulb, it's the same bulb as used in plug-in nite lights. If it's not a screw-in you'll need to go to an appliance parts store to the proper bulb.

check fuse #7 in the fuse block inside the vehicle and fuse #25 in the fuse block under the hood...more than likely you blew one of these fuses when it sparked. as for the drivers side being inop once you replace the blown fuse if you have a test light check for voltage at the bulb connector...the light assembly itself may be bad

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had


The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.

My dryer did the same thing, all the lights worked on front, but the bulb was out inside. All I had to do was to replace the thermal fuse and replace the bulb if you want light. The bulb don't have to work in order to dry clothes

Correct voltage for lamp connection?


(Lamp may light and go out) suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977020 3. (Lamp may light and go out) Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V part # 181P732040 on the Power PCB (part # 930B921002) 4. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977020 5. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977020 6. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on and does go to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Lamp Power PCB (ballast) part # 939P978010 7. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977020 .

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?


Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
