ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Dear, I have a question that when turn on the air conditioner, it's blowed out the hot air. How can i fix this problem to get it cool again? Thank you


You will need a service call to check for a leak in the coolant or possible bad compressor or compressor starter. If the compressor is coming on and no cool air then the coolant has leaked out and can no longer cool the unit and will need replaced by a licensed technician. If the compressor is not coming on but gets very hot then the compressor is bad, and if it is not coming on and not hot then the starter condenser is bad.

Drum or blower will freeze up while tumbling


If it is an old dryer, or maybe you put a lot of clothes in it at a time, sounds like the friction pads are maybe worn. The drum is open on the front side and just has some teflon or plastic pads that the drum rides on. Maybe you are dealing with metal to metal, which doesn't slide too well. You can order those pads and replace them. Don't ignore this, check it out, because if it is metal to metal, that creates hot, glowing sparks, not good to have in your home.......

Sharp copier, not producing clean copies


Could be the fusing unit (part that gets hot) but most likely cause based on your description is the drum unit. Easy to check by simply removing your toner cartridge, then removing the drum cartridge which sits right next to the toner cartridge. After removing the drum cartridge, turn it over and look at the colored cylinder. This is the drum. It should be clean. If your problem is in the drum unit you will see the same 2 "bands" of toner are something on the drum surface. If this is the case, it means the drum cleaning blade is going bad. Just order in a new drum unit and this will fix the copy quality problem.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Whirlpool Electric dryer type-DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54. model LER7646JQO the heating element get very hot. the dryer does not turn on. the drum does not turn either.


If the heating element is getting very hot that means there is no air flow across it. If the drum doesn't turn then the blower is not turning causing the element to get very hot. Could be drum belt, drum rollers, or motor.

Dryer wont tumble the belt has come off and also the spring system, ho can this be fixed?


Follow the bellow steps in order to replace the belt:

  1. Safety first! Unplug the machine from the wall-socket and make sure the machine has been idle long enough so that the heater elements, etc. have cooled.
  2. 180px-p3090017.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removalRemove the top cover of the machine by undoing the 2 bolts at the back of the top panel.
  3. 180px-p3090016.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removedYou should now be able to see if the belt is broken or not. It should be wrapped around the back of the drum. In this picture, you can see it has snapped and is loose on the drum.
  4. 180px-p3090047.jpg magnify-clip.pngRemove plastic coverRemove the plastic cover at the bottom rear of the machine and take off the black belt going from the red pulley to the white pulley (this turns the fan).
  5. 180px-p3090019.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow coverAt the back of the machine, undo the 5 or 6 bolts securing the air-flow cover...
  6. 180px-p3090020.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow cover removed...revealing the drum securing e-ring and washers.
  7. Remove these and keep them in a safe place for now. 180px-p3090023.jpg magnify-clip.pnge-ring & washers
  8. 180px-p3090034.jpg magnify-clip.pngdrum and back panelThe drum is no longer holding in the back panel of the machine.
  9. 180px-p3090037.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack PanelUsing a 7mm socket wrench, remove the screws holding in the back panel of the machine. Take care to support the panel (and the drum) as the screws are removed. A second pair of hands is useful here!
  10. 180px-p3090025.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack panel removalTaking care to support the drum, move the back panel away from the machine slightly. Do not move more than a few inches yet!

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
