Hello,

From the look of things, the heating element has burn out. That is, the heating element is defective and not producing any heat, that's why the washing doesn't dry the washing.

Also, circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power may have blown; you may need to reset or replace it. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.

For more info and possible cause of this probelm, clcik here: http://www.partselect.com/dryer+dryer-wont-heat+repair.htm

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards.

Barrel isn't turning.


I believe you will find the belt is broken.
There is a motor which is supposed to turn a belt, which in turn drives the drum.
If you wish to repair ir yourself, a letter to "Fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the steps.
Be blessed.

My KUDS011JBSO undercounter dishwasher is blinking the normal wash light. What do I need to look for to fix this?


Hi


If light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or the thermal fuse, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the thermal fuse located on the control or the door switch that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Clean light is flashing. Dishwasher will not start.


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
