Check for main power to the unit. Check the program controller and the output for the functions.
If there is no power coming to the motor check the driver. If power is present check the main capacitor to the motor. Use a multimeter to check the voltage and confirm if the board is outputting.

My whirlpool duet electric dryer electrical systems and heat work fine, but drum won't turn and belt is in tact.


Check the motor capacitor,sometimes the capacitor could be faulty or the motor is faulty or check if the motor is receiving power,if it's receiving power try to replace the capacitor if the is any in the system,if still it's not working then the motor could be burnt.

Also check weather the timer is perfecty.

My Maytag Neptune Dryer works great with no close in it. As soon as you put clothes in it wont stay hot.


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Level

1. Ensure that the dryer's door is latched shut and that the power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet. Also check the home's fuse box for a tripped circuit breaker.
2. Make sure that the "Air Fluff" button on the dryer's touchscreen has not been selected if the dryer fails to produce heat. Also clear the lint screen if the dryer fails to heat.
3. Check the exhaust system, which exits from the back of the dryer for clogs, which commonly occur if the lint screen has not been cleaned regularly. Also ensure that only 4-inch metal exhaust tubing is used for the exhaust system. If clogs are present due to an improper exhaust system, the dryer will fail to dry the clothing completely. Also avoid overloading the dryer, which can also cause a drying problem. The amount of clothing equal to a single wash load should not be exceeded.
4. Check for the presence of loose items if the dryer produces noise, such as coins and loose buttons. The dryer will also produce noise if it is not leveled properly. Place a level on top of the dryer and turn the foot located on the bottom of each corner of the dryer until the dryer is level.

My dryer works fine for about 7 mins then it stop and says f03


this is what it means :
    F03
  1. This code indicates a problem with the dryer's heating system. The code will appear when the heating circuits are broken or when there is an intermittent break in the power source for the dryer. If the heating circuits are working and the power source is steady, you may need to replace the central control board.

The timer will not advance, it heats up on the correct settings, but will just stay on indefinately. Sounds like a classic Timer issue, but just want to ask for a second opinion, and ask what the part...









We have a dryer ( could be any make! ) that is consistently blowing fuses after about 15-20 minutes. We have taken the dryer apart to check for clogs in the venting system and to check if the heating core was okay and they seem to be fine. Any ideas?


Blowing the house fuses? If yes....the dryer usually will blow a fuse right away if there is a problem in the dryer....more often than not a fuse that blows after the dryer has been running a while it is a fuse box issue. A test: Put 2 new 30 amp fuses in and run the dryer with the heat on for 5-10 minutes, turn off the dryer and quickly remove the fuses from the house fuse box and see if they are hot at all ( especially on the bottom )....if the fuses are getting hot they are probably melting the fuse link and not really blowing = fuse box problem.

As for most things there are exceptions....a grounded heating element -may- blow the fuse after the dryer has been on for a while, it is easy to test for that as well. See. A burnt/loose power cord/plug -may- also give this type of a problem.





Dryer basics- Venting problems and power supply:
Most dryer "to long to dry" or "poor/low heat" complaints can be traced back to a bad or poor venting system and sometimes a poorly maintained lint filter. Do not go outside and put your hand under the vent opening and say " it is fine - I feel air coming out"...that is not good enough...take your venting apart, clean it ALL out and make sure the vent hood flapper works and that it is not clogged with lint. Make sure your venting system is short, straight and resistance free as possible. A poor venting system will shorten the life of your dryer, plug up the fan blower and duct work inside your dryer as well.
Gas dryers need 120 volts to operate the whole dryer. Electric dryers need 240 volts to operate the heating element and 120 volts to operate the timer and motor. You should see 240 volts between the black and red wires, 120 volts between the red and white wires, 120 volts between the black and white wires at the electric dryer main power harness. A blown house fuse ( or breaker ) would stop a gas dryer from working at all. A blown house fuse ( or a 1/2 tripped breaker ) would still allow the electric dryer to run but you would get no heat. Depending on which fuse goes, sometimes the dryer could be dead as well. If you have problems with a fuse letting go or a breaker tripping after the dryer runs for a while, normally the problem is not in the dryer but is in the fuse box.i think it will work

Cloths take way too long to dry. Heat is working in dryer. Timer works, counts down from 60 min, buttheremo drying timer takes way too long.


You will need to check the dryer venting system for a restriction. If there is a restriciton in the venting system the dryer will get hot but the clothes will stay wet due to the moisture never leaves the dryer. First check the air flow at the vent exit located outside. Verify that there is plenty of airflow. Make sure the vent screen is not plugged. Then remove the screen and visually inspect for excessive lint. Then go inside and check the moisture vent hose behind the dryer. Verify that the vent hose is not kinked or restricted. Then remove the hose and clear out any excessive lint. Then check the vent opening at the back of the dryer for any excessive lint build-up. There is a vent cleaning kit that you can purchase from any home improvement store that you can use to clean out the venting system also. When you are done airflow should be good and clothes should properly dry.

Kenmore 90 series Hi My dryer gets very hot in a short period of time and then turns off. Not on long enough to dry any clothes. The drum and the outside of the dryer is hot. Can you help? Thanks


Please note that if the HOT AIR that the dryer crteates is restricted from exiting the dryer because of a clooged up ventilation system or lint build up in the dryer, The ELEMENT will come on very rapidly and very bright which will eventually break the element. ALSO, please check to see if the element BROKE and as it broke it touches the stack. One way to test the ventilation system = hole on the wall to wherever the air goes outside, IS TO remove the vent hose from the BACK of theDRYER and run JUST ONE normal load to see if this works better. If all is good and the dryer works better, then your ventilation system needs cleaning. IF ALL IS STILL NOT OKAY, then check the interior of dryer to clean any LINT or as stated above, check the element
