Question about Washing Machines
Please confirm the make and model# of your dryer. It is not necessary for the cooling light to be switched On at all times. If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things.
Electric Dryer-- 1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. 2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively. 3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker. 4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Gas Dryer-- 1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. 2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there. 3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary. 4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter. 5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible. Hope this helps...
