Dryer was working perfectly then just stopped working. I am getting the proper voltage from the house. Can you suggest a good place for me to start - door switch, thermal fuse? Thanks in advance, Rudy Eisenzopf

Either one of the two that you suggested is the good way to start with. For that you need to access the back panel. Inside the you will find the schematic. Follow the schematic from the power input, so you can find where it is cut off. Most of the time, it is the relay to turn on the machine. The moment you press the start button, if the dryer has all safety signal met as door switch, thermal fuse, then the relay will engage then hold on to that so power can be continuing on until any of safety requirement breaks off. If the relay is not engage, then you can see it is not operated.

Samsung Dryer Issue


Is this Dryer in the US? It sounds like it may be as you are refering to a Phase Voltage of 120 volts and a Line Voltage of 240 v.
therefore it sounds like your machine is 3 Phase and in the past you have been wired as 3 Phase and Neutral (4 Pin), it could be that your 3 pin socket at the new location is only 3 Phase ( no Neural ) in which case you may have applied twice the voltage to the control circuit which should be only 120 volts in your case, check on the PCB of the control circuit for any fuse which may have operated, otherwise there may be power supply issues due to applying over voltage in the absence of a Neutral :-(

Hi,
If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

I have a Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite HE5 Steam front load dryer. Everything seems to work fine except there is absolutely no heat. I checked the breaker, and it wasn't tripped. I checked the lint filter and...


I think I know what the problem is, this actually happened on a dryer I repaired at one point. Low line voltage to me means that one or more hot leads is not feeding enough voltage to the heating elements (and the heating elements need both hot leads to run) which means the circuit breaker, although on, may be malfunctioning or weakening. You can check this by running your dryer and taking the cover off your circuit panel and checking voltage on the breaker. You should see 110V on each terminal to ground (put leads from one terminal to the grounding bar in the panel). If you see less than 110V on each lead to ground and less that 240V across the terminals it needs to be replaced. (You can get one for under $25.00 depending on brand). NOTE: THE BREAKER USUALLY POPS RIGHT OUT OF THE PANEL, BUT WHEN WORKING IN PANEL TURN MAIN BREAKER OFF TO THE HOUSE AND HAVE SOMEONE HOLD A FLASHLIGHT FOR YOU. IF YOU TOUCH THE LIVE BUSS BAR THAT BREAKER GOES INTO YOU WILL GET SEVERELY HURT. TURNING OFF MAIN BREAKER WILL DISENGAGE THE POWER FROM THE BUSS BARS; NOTE THAT MAIN WIRES ARE STILL POWERED SO BE CAREFUL.

No heat


Try testing the voltage across both fuses. The time you swapped fuses, and the motor ran without heat indicates to me that one of your hot leads is not getting voltage. On a three wire system, you should have two 110v leads and a common. Make sure that the cord is connected properly, and the same for the receptacle that you plug into. Test the receptacle as well for proper voltage and a good common ground.
Hope that this helps. Please repost if necessary.....Operators are standing by......!

Maytag Neptune MDE7500AYW - Won't start - Message says "A power failure..


I had the same problem. It turned out a power transformer in the neighborhood had gone bad. I found it by checking power at the receptacles in the house and we weren't getting proper voltage throughout the house. We had enough power in the house to power lights, the TV, coffee maker etc. but not enough for the dryer. I called the power company and they came out to do a check. At first they said there was a wiring problem with the house until all the neighbors started coming over after seeing their vehicle and saying they were having problems. So maybe you aren't getting proper power to the unit.

Good luck. Hope this fixes your problem.

I have the same problem, and it might be due to the fact that your dryer operates off a voltage that your house is not providing. Your dryer might need 220 volts and is only receiving 110 volts. That may be why it powers up but nothing works but the light when you open the dryer door. It needs more power to run the rest. Look into changing the voltage on your receptacle in your house to 220 volts to properly operate your dryer. Good luck!
