Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Duet dryer Just bought the Duet sport dryer and got to use it once. Everything was fine. Went to use it for the second time and it made a humming noise but would not start. I canceled and reset it, pressed start and the sensing light came on but the dryer does not spin. Light changed to wet, but still no spinning. Checked breakers/fuses and reset them. Tried to start again but then a burning smell came from the back where cord connects to dryer. Unplugged it overnight and smell still remains. Any advice?

Be sure wires on back at ac connection are tight loose connections generate heat and will cause wires to burn also be sure they connected properly this problem usually falls under installation problems not dryer problem

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

you have a blown fuse if you remove the front lower cover you will see a white long fuse about 2 inch long it is bad after you put the new one on it will work but you need to keep the front off and turn on the dryer and look at the heater and see if it is lighting up red all over if not the heater needs to be replace it is shorted out and that is what made the fuse blow
