You would have damaged the power supply section but in many cases the front end contains a surge protector with a variator which will short and blow the fuse. So check fuse replace and check for short in the input circuit of the power supply, if the Switch mode is damaged then you need to replace the unit with a 220 volt type or if only the 110 type is available then use a step down transformer to down the mains to 110V with about 0.5Amps
Well for sure the washer is going to be 110v. Only electric dryers are 220v!. If your dryer doesnt have a gas connection on it then it is a electric 220v dryer. If it has gas connection then it is 110v gas dryer. there is no such thing as a 220v gas dryer!!!.
if it has a small 3 prong plug then it's 110v for the washer but the dryer should be factory 220 volt however many were sold wired too! 110 volt! just look at the plug small plug 110v large 3 prong! 220v
The Fuse for these model is 110V - 250V, so definitely the machine will still light up for a moment then black out. So if you accidentally plugged it to 220V (if it is 110V) you have to change the whole PCB. Electric current are distributed by PCB which only handles 110V.
I suggest when you change the PCB try to change also the Fuse to 110V only so that next time if by accident it was plugged to 220V you just have to change the Fuse not the PCB.
can you hear the pump making any noises,if you can (humming sound)then it may be blocked with lint,coins etc.if the pump isnt making any noises then it may be faulty or a broken wire to the pump or you have a no drain button pressed in . hope this helps
If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.
