Is it that the dryer does not start at all, or there is no heat?

    First thing to do is verify your source voltage for the dryer make sure you
    have 240v. The dryer motor only needs 120v supplied by one of the lines to run.
    But the heating elements, on the other hand, need 240v supplied by both
    lines to get hot.


    If the source voltage is ok, then the most likely bad parts are listed
    below.


    1. Even Heat Board


    2. Heater Relay


    3. Thermostat


    4. Sensor


    I would recommend that you get a repair guy to check these out if you have no previous experience dissembling the dryer.



    Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,
    please post them here.

Control Panel turns off


HI,
The PCB unit ie the control panel circuit board has gone bad. The probable cause of the same is moisture on the board.

Malber Dryer won't start (sine-wave light flashing)


The dryer is easy: turn it on and turn the control to 0. It will beep. Then turn it to the desired program (20, 40, 60 minutes or a pre-programmed cycle), it will beep again and start. If there's a red light you have to empty the water tank at the front on the left. The washer is a normal washer. Just pick your program and press start (be patient as it takes a while to get cranking). Sometimes you have to really push the door closed very hard. Try and turn the control to 12 o'clock before setting it again.

Whirlpool dryer LGR7646EQ3. Burner lights before pushing start.


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot ignitor and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.

Dryer starts after setting time without pushing start button


The control switch assembly needs to be replaced. The start button is sticky.
