    Similar scenario but My heater does not dim the lights or flip the breakers. I had water in the basement that went over the bottom element. People at Whirlpool said it was not safe to use any longer since the insulation got wet. Is this true or would it be worth trying to replace the elements?

My dryer stops after a few minutes and all the lights flash. It stops turning and doesnt get warm or hot in that time. I have cleaned all filters and emptied the water. Can anyone help?


I believe it has something to do with the computer circuitry. You might try to reboot it. Unplug your dryer for a few minutes, plug it back in and see if that works. It did for my washer. Good luck.

Why is my dryer beeping and showing E60?


24386410-hf2jxxovvq5cn05mugly0fcq-2-0.jpg

The last alarm code memorized can be displayed even if the appliance is in normal operating mode (e.g. while the drying programme is being performed): - Press (start/pause) and first option button simultaneously for at least 5 seconds: the display shows the last alarm.The alarm sequence continues to flash as long as the two buttons are held down.
The appliance continues the cycle while the alarm codes are being displayed. If the appliance is in programme selection mode, the options previously selected are stored in memory.

E60 is family fault code but after reading last alarm you will see exactly fault code (E61; E62; E63)

E61 - Insufficient heating (maximum time exceeded)
  • Heater unit faulty
  • Wiring faulty
  • NTC sensor incorrectly calibrated/out of position
  • Electronic board faulty
E62 - Power reley to heater unit faulty
  • Heater unit faulty
  • Wiring faulty
  • Electronic board faulty
E63 - Intervention of auto-reset thermostat on the heater unit
  • Thermostat faulty (replace heater unit)
  • Heater unit faulty
  • Wiring faulty
  • Electronic board faulty

How do i know when 220 circuit breakers are bad


Always match breaker and wire size:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html

Feel if breaker is getting warm.
Listen for crackling sound.
Breaker is tripping.
Move wires to another same-size circuit breaker and see if problem continues.

Check watt or amp load on breaker.
For example water heater label shows 4500 watt non-simultaneous.
4500 watts divided by 240 volts = 18.75 amps.
You might think 20 amp breaker was good in this case.
However electricians use 80% safe maximum.
20 amp breaker x 80% safe max = 16 amps.
Water heater is 18.75 amps, so install 30 amp breaker.
30 amp breaker uses 10 gauge wire.
This means wire to breaker will run cool and not get hot, so breaker lasts longer, and there is more efficiency.
Using 80% safe maximum rule protects home, reduces heat wear on breakers and breaker box so everything lasts longer.

My dryer is rotating but no hot airflow


Hi - model of the dryer would be helpful as theres a few of them around & parts are not always compatible - however theres a few possiblities - the fan drive belt may be broken *pending on model some have separate drive belft for the exhaust fan - faulty or broken fan blade - thermostat open or a faulty over temp sensor - last but not the least a bad heater element../

without air flow even if element is ok there will be no heat available - basic cycle of operation of all dryers.

Good luck

Clothes Have a sour smell when dried


The moldy odor in this front loading washer (and most other front loaders, too) and the clothes washed in ti is due to the way the washer are built. There's almost always some water that doesn't get pumped out all the way. The water along with detergent residue left inside the machine is the perfect combination for mold growth between wash days.

First stop feeding mold. Stop using "regular" detergent in it. By regular, I mean anything that isn't an "HE" type. You've got to use the types designated as "HE" (High Efficiency). They suds up a lot less, and due to the significantly less water our front loaders use, actually leave less soap residue (that is a large source of the mold and musty smell) behind the tub of front loading machines. I use only about 1/2 of the HE detergent recommended on the bottle and get very good results.

Second, kill off existing mold. Run a clothes-less wash consisting of bleach and HOT water only 1 X week. This should be the last load run whenever the machine will be idle for a couple days or more.

Third, always wipe dry the inside of the tub, detergent & softener dispensing areas, the gasket around the door - particularly the bottom. Again, this is best after the last load is complete.

Fourth, leave all doors open or slightly ajar to allow for air circulation.

Some products that are designed to rid odors from your washer.


Finally, to remove the existing mold smell from the machine, one or two initial treatments (followed by regular treatments) of a product called "Affresh" (or equal) as directed. Some people have good luck with vinegar, too.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

My Fisher paykel dryer does not heat


Thermostat Cutout – Manual Reset (Electrical)
Type SPST 30 Amps/240 Volts AC
Trip Temperature 212°F (100°C)
Diagnostic Mode
Entering the Diagnostic Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Auto Dry down button, then press the Power
button.
The dryer is now in level 0 of the diagnostic mode. After initial entry into the
diagnostic mode, the Start/Pause button operates the dryer as normal. Press
the Auto Dry up or down buttons to scroll through the fault levels.
There are several levels of diagnostics, most of which are used in
development and production. These levels may bring on various LEDs, but
the level of use for the service technician is that of the last fault.
Last Fault
To enter the last fault diagnostics, enter the diagnostic mode as described
above, then press the Auto Dry up button three times. The last fault will be
displayed on the drying progress LEDs
Conductivity Contact Impedance Check
To enter the conductivity contact impedance check, enter the diagnostic mode
as described above, then press the Auto Dry up button five times. In this
mode, touching damp clothes or fingers across the conductivity contacts will
cause the LED display to change. If the contacts, or the harness to them,
have gone open circuit, no change will occur in the LED display. This is a
useful method of checking the integrity of the sensor circuits.
To exit the diagnostic mode, press any cycle button.
Entering the Data Download Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Auto Dry down button, then press the Power
button. This enters the diagnostic mode.
(c) Press the Regular button.
Encoded data is transmitted serially out the red Auto LED, and is be captured
by an optical download pen attached to a PC where “Smart Tool” software
interprets the data to aid servicing.
To exit, press the Regular button.
Entering the Showroom Mode
(a) Turn the power supply to the dryer on.
(b) Press and hold the Air Dry button, then press the Power button.
The LEDs will flash in a random sequence.
To exit, turn off the power supply to the dryer at the wall.
Tell me what sort of faults codes you can come up with and I will tell you what it means but in the meantime reset the limit and clean out the lint problem, open the stopped up vent. That dryer has to breath or that safety will kick out again. I have the manual

Dryer trips breaker as soon as i try to start it.


Use or borrow a volt ohm meter and check for a grounded hot wire. You may also be exceeding the start up load on the 20 amp breaker. Test this theory (after you make sure that there are no ground faults) by starting the dryer in a "air fluff" mode without heat. If the dryer starts in the "no heat mode", switch the heat on - if you blow the breaker you know that the 20 amp breaker cannot handle it. Before you do any of the above - check your dryer manual for the service requirments. If you don't have the manual go to the mfg. web site and download it.

Filter lamp flashing


The condenser has two "channels" one for the moist hot air that are easy to clean and inspect. The other flow is perpendicular where cool air drawn from outside and passes through. These channels, viewed from the side can get blocked over time with dust/fluff. I blasted mine with a pressure washer and it was obvious from the change in light when looking through it that it was clogged before I blasted it.
