I had the exact same thing happen. I was drying a heavy load of towels and jeans and it just quit. No tumbling, no heat, no air.

I took my dryer apart and found that there's a thermo switch on the duct between the fan and exhaust. When open, this cuts power to the motor (which I think also cuts power to the heater).

This is the part: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4045367

I made a temporary jumper past this and it started. So, I have a new switch on order.

Hi, I just purchased an older style washer dryer combo. When loaded (with as little as two towels) it doesn't agitate or spin. Belt is fine. Drum starts to turn but can't make it up the hill. Any sugg


Your motor may be having trouble starting due to a bad capacitor or start winding in the motor. Ideally you want to use a multimeter to test resistance of the start winding.

Washer is plugged in and it won't start or open?


A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring the contents up-either an agitator in the middle of a top- load machine or a rolling drum in a front-loading machine.

Can't stop cycle


You probably have some other issue with the machine if it won't stop, but the machine may also not be spinning the mat out because the load is unbalanced. If you put it in on spin only, watch to see if it actually spins up to speed or not. You will see it rotate the drum back and forth a couple of times - it is sensing the weight of the load and trying to balance it. I the machine can't balance it, it will never spin up to max speed. If this happens, put a few other items in the washer with the heavy item (they need to be of similar weight - like some towels or a heavy jacket or something) and try again. Good Luck

Dryer lights works, but when the start button is pushed the drum does not spin. the timer shows the minutes counting off, but no spinning. the dryer worked yesterday, but no today. dryer is a duet...


I am having the same problem. Dried towels last night. This morning, I loaded it, turned it on, it did not lock the door or start drying (spinning) but the timer started counting down. I pressed Cancel twice, unplugged it for a few minutes then tried again. Problem still exists. Any suggestions?

The drum seems to bang the side of the machine when starting a spin cycle, the drum also seems to lean over slightly


This is usually caused by an unbalanced load. You will want to stop the machine ASAP when you hear the "banging" noise, and reposition the clothing or towels, whatever you have in the washer at the time, to create a balanced load. If this doesn't help, I would suggest calling a repairman.

Hotpoint Aquarius wd440 washer/dryer wont pump out water HELP!


hold the start button for 5 seconds this should clear previous program. then select drain on your dial. press start as normal and machine will drain. if this does not work the only other remedy is with help, making sure the end of the drain hose is higher than drum at all times take machine outside, lean it back at 45 degrees agaist a wall with a towel or similar covering lid to stop scratching . working from underneath loosen the large jubillee clip that connects the drum to pump drain hose to the drum. As the drum is overfull there is no recepticle large enough to fit under so just let water just flow away. Dry every thing off. make sure you don't loose ping pong ball in filter and make sure filter is clear. refitting is reverse of removal

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.

Sometimed error being displayed but also not completing cycles and not performing a fast spin


Hi there, I've also had this problem a few times. I've found cleaning out the filter can help solve the problem of the E20 message. Also when it doesn't spin fast it usually means the load is uneven. I found it happens with towels or bedcovers, heavier loads, if the load is uneven it will spin slowly for a good few minutes and then just stop with the clothes still dripping. I found rearranging the load more evenly usually sorts it out. I've had my machine for 18months now and usually love it. It washes and dries well, however, my dryer has stopped working again! I'd only had the machine 7 months when the dryer first stopped working another 11 months down the line and it's not working again! Hope this helps. Lelly2003
