Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have an admiral clothes dryer model # ADE70000AYW that stopped running during use. I have checked the breaker, the power source connection and the connection to the terminal block and everything checked ok. Also, the interior light does not come on. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

It sounds like the thermal fuse failed. See the link below to the wiring for the unit. The thermal fuse is in the upper right-hand corner of the drawing.

The thermal fuse should be mounted on the back of the dryer on the air duct.

Admiral Dryer, runs bu t does not heat


The thermostat, timer or the heating element itself are the places to check. Look at the circuit breaker for the dryer in the power panel. It will be two breakers connected together. If one trips but not both, the heating element will not heat but the dryer will run.

I have an admiral electric dryer. It stopped in the middle of a cycle and the light is out and it won't turn on. I checked the fuse box, the plug and the belt is still on, so what do I do now?


Did you test the power outlet with another device...Sometimes a power outlet will fail under the load of a high current appliance like a drier...If the drier runs on 220 volt current...and have circuit breakers instead of fuses...make sure the 220 volt breaker for the dryer is not tripped...If it is tripped...reset it....if not...have a tech to check the outlet. oncee it is established that the drier is getting power and still not working...you may want to get it checked out by service personnel....Hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

you must check if there is power to the element when you have it switch on , , if you have no power to the element , then trace the wiring from the element to a hi limit thermostat , it a small round disc shape item about the size of a 10 cent coin with two connections , remove the wires and check continity accross the two terminals, if it is ok , then check the on and off switch or timer dial , you might see burn marks around the connections , since it trip the circuit breaker

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn
