Question about Dryers

Open Question

Hi,I cannot get the Westinghouse LD605E dryer to operate. Have turned on power, selected the appropriate buttons on the panel, pushed the door lock button in, pressed start, nothing happens. I can detect some heat and hear a slight humming sound, but the drum doesn't start rotating. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks

SOURCE: The Drum on my LG DLE2512W Dryer will not turn

no problem with motor or control board. fault is with the motor capacitor only. this is often attached to the motor or near it. the value of the capacitor will be printed on it (usually about 8uf) and you should be able to source from an electrical spares shop

SOURCE: Drum not rotating

If you clean your lint filter after each load faithfully, try removing the dryer vent hose that goes to the outside and inspect it for lint accumulation, water build up, or some other foreign material, as this will restrict air flow and cause your described symptoms. If your are unable to inspect your vent, disconnect it from the back of the dryer and start your dryer to see if it works that way.

Depending on the make of dryer,there are several possibile reasons for this.
First and foremost, could be a faulty motor- faulty start capacitor, Faulty start relay.
Without more information I cannot be more specific.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have to manually get drum turning...

Yes, there is a "startup" switch. It's the button you push on the panel (but I'm sure you know about that).

This switch energizes the start winding in the motor -- when the motor gets up to speed, a centrifugal switch in the motor disconnects the power from the start winding and switches to the run winding.

Either the start winding is not getting power or the winding is bad. If "no power" is the problem, it could be the button on the panel or a loose/dirty connection between there and the start winding. Lot of possibilities which need to be explored.

But if you know about pushing the safety switch on the door and spinning the drum by hand to get the motor started, you can probably fix this.

If the power is there, you will want to check the door switch, thermal fuse, thermostats, and start switch to see if one of these is faulty. Make sure that the control settings are appropriate, and that any buttons are fully depressed. Make sure that the start button has been fully pushed down or turned far enough to activate the dryer.
The door or lid switch performs two main functions. When the dryer door is open, it keeps the dryer from starting, and turns on the light. If the door switch is faulty, your dryer won't work, and you'll need to replace the switch. The door switch is located inside of your dryer's main housing right by the door frame. You'll probably need to access this switch through the top or front of your dryer.
There may also be a problem with the start switch. Test and replace if it is faulty.
Many dryers use what's called a thermal fuse. This is often mounted within the exhaust duct in the back panel. This fuse is about an inch long, and is usually found within a white plastic housing. Your dryer will not operate if this fuse is defective. You can test this fuse, and if faulty, replace it.
Most fuses have a thin wire that conducts electricity. When fuses blow, it means the wire is broken, they have no continuity and no power will flow through it. When this happens to the thermal fuse, your dryer either doesn't work at all, or it stops heating. Give your vent and heating system a visual check before you replace this fuse.
You will also want to test each thermostat to determine if any one is faulty. A bad thermostat may prevent your dryer from working at all.

My new bosch axxis washer was20160uc does not start


Open the dishwasher door if the desired cycle does not perform as selected on the control panel. Press the main power switch "Off" and then "On" again. Select a cycle, press the appropriate button, press "Start" and close the door. Make sure the door is closed completely.

Check the circuit breaker and water supply if the dishwasher does not start after selecting the appropriate cycle on the control panel and shutting the door.

Turn "Off" the dishwasher and disconnect the dishwasher from the power supply if an error code between "E01" and "E30" appears on the digital display. Reconnect and turn the dishwasher "On." This should reset the control panel.

Terminate a program on the control panel by holding the "A" button and pressing "Start" at the same time. The display will read "0:01". Close the door to start the program sequence. The display will read "0:00" when finished.

The dryer wont show any sign of power. The plug works fine


Hi,


Press and hold start button for 4-5 seconds.Make sure that the start button has been fully pushed down or turned far enough to activate the dryer.

After that plug something else into the same outlet. If it works, you know you have power to the dryer. If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to check for any blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers.


If the power is there, you need to check door switch, thermal fuse, thermostats, and start switch to see if one of these is faulty.
Make sure that the control settings are appropriate, and that any buttons are fully depressed.


Good Luck and have a nice day.

I just bought a second hand westinghouse dryer 6kg LD605E, the sticker on the machine is upside down and the seller told me that the machine can be used either way. it this true? thanks


The LD605 series of driers is wall mountable and stackable
When wall mounting, the drier is hung 'upside down' with the knobs at the bottom to allow access, by people less than 8 feet tall.
The original package came with wall mounting bracke, and replacement sticker for the control panel with the text upside down so that it would be right way up when the dryer was hung.
If you arent going to hang the dryer, examine one small corner of the label area, the original label may be underneath and exposed by removing the wall hanging label.

The current model in the LD605 series still comes with wall mounting kit
