Question about EuroTech EDC158 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My EuroTech dryer turned on for a second then I heard a popping noise and it turned off. I noticed at the bottom of the dryer (right side) looking through the vent, I saw a spark. What is wrong? I do not have a service technician anywhere in my area to fix this type of dryer.

    Hi heatman 101,
    Thanks for the info. The dryer is electric and doesn't heat or spin. When I turned on, there was a spark that ran from bottom of dryer to control panel.

The electric heating element broke and is touching the metal and shorting out...


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

    Hi,

    That is what I originally thought...

    The heating element has shorted...pull it out and look for a broken wire...and then replace it...

    hopefully it didn't fry anything else..

Eurotech dryer. ON light flashes on and off, beeps once, and still flashes then nothing happens, dryer won't start. Help?


The problem is that you stopped a cycle before the program knob reached the "STOP" (12 o'clock on the knob). All you have to do is turn on the machine, turn the knob to STOP, and wait a couple of seconds. You'll hear a tone and the ON/OFF light will stop blinking. Turn the program knob to the cycle you want and- viola! you're good to go!

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

Power train, transmission questions.


Get ready for a overhaul. Ask the transmission companies and they will tell you that us Dodge owners are their best customers. Your torque converter is getting toasted. You have about 10k before it goes. Sorry for the news. Got mine done and now at 213, ooo so it was worth 1700 to get it fixed. got an extra 60 k and going strong.

It may be the control panel board. Replace it you can probably do it yourself and that should solve the problem.

Hitachi 51F500 (Two separate problems?)


My guess is that the sound you heard was that of some High Voltage discharges that could have fed back and damaged some semiconductors including the microprocessor itself. Since it could be a very expensive repair, I would be very tempted to look around for a new HDTV by JVC or Toshiba. Hitachi has slipped a notch or two in recent years according to my experience.
