It is possible the over temp snap switch could be bad, but also they were in the right direction with an air flow problem too. The duct needs not to be restricted, and you must verify the blower fan is in good condition, turning, and also free of debris.

Where is the air conditioning sensor. We were told it is under the dash and the whole dash has to be dismantled. We were also told there is more than one air conditioning sensor.This is big bucks and not...


The upper and lower duct sensors are divided into left and right zone operation. The left side upper and lower duct sensors will only effect the operation of the left air temperature actuator and the right side upper and lower duct sensors will only effect the operation of the right air temperature actuator. The duct sensors are used to measure the temperature of the air exiting the ducts.

The inside temperature sensor operates within a temperature range between -6.5°C (20.3°F) to 57.5°C (135.5°F) . If the sensor is shorted to ground, the system will operate in the maximum cooling mode. If the sensor is shorted to voltage or open, the system will operate in the maximum heating mode. The ambient sensor operates within a temperature range between-30°C(-22°F) to 51°C (123.8°F) . If the HVAC control module (IPM) has determined that the ambient air temperature sensor has failed, the IPM shall display "- -" in place of the ambient air temperature. If the sensor is shorted to ground, the system will operate in the maximum cooling mode. If the sensor is shorted to voltage or open, the system will operate in the maximum heating mode.

You are not makining sense when you replaced a P/S belt and A/C is now non op You need to know what the pressure is Leave the sensor alone the problem reside in the engine compartment

DBV512gfoww dryer does not dry clothes completly on auto cycle. I have replaced both gas coils.


If the dryer is heating up, and clothes are being partially dried, then your dryer may be overheating. Check the ducts for lint balls / clogs, pay attention to the exterior opening, as well as the duct tube on the back of th e dryer itself. If everything appears normal / clear, you may have a limit switch that is acting up.

If the dryer is not heating up, then likely air movement (through ducts) is not high / fast enough to trigger that indicates that air flow is okay. Check all the duct work. If clear, then sensor / vane switch for air movement may not be closing like it should, which won't allow the igniter / gas valves to function.

Hi, i have a homebrand dryer. Model: TD50-89S. Without asking first,my son transferred washing to dryer. Unfortunately, there was alot of white fluff all over washing and he assumed the dryer could take...


Your duct work is probably clogged with the fluff, which will not allow the air to flow though like it should. When that happens, the heat builds up on the cabinet and the heat sensor shuts down the heat. Its an easy fix, it this is the case. Just remove the duct from the dryer, clean it out, clean out the fluff from the dryer duct connection, then go outside and inspect the outside dryer vent for clogs. Make sure the flapper is working on the outside vent as well. Good luck!

Dryer heats once or twice then stops heating


It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 12001348.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

The disassembly procedure is covered beginning on page 3-10 of the manual listed at the link below. Operation and replacement of coils is covered at page 3-32. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.


Reverse process to re-assemble. Good Luck

No heat


this happen a lot on this dryers locate the heat sensor on the back of the dryer is located near the exit air duct it looks like a white piece of plastic with 2 wires on it get a volt meter and test it for conductivity this sensor control the heater element and if the air coming out from the duct is to hot this sensor burns so make sure your duct line is clear and don't put just few clothes on it because your dryer will get too hot again and it will burn this sensor again go to a repair shop for dryers and get one they only cost like 5 dls bye a second one to have it ready if happen again and if this sensor is good then check your heater element for conductivity heater element is only like 20 dls

The tumble dryer does not dry The heater element warms up The fan motor is turning but no heat gets into the drum. Bosch Classixx wash and dry


does the element heat up then turn right back off after a few seconds? if so, there is 2 sensors that control the heat element, one is in the duct right after the fan. when this sensor senses too hot, it will shut down the heat element. either your sensor is bad, or the lint is not getting out, causing the heat to build up in the duct.

LG WM3431HS condenser duct needs cleaning and I'd like to do it myself instead of paying a repair man $200.00 to fix it. Is there a service manual or other source of instructions available? I watched the...


Alright - bumping an old thread but I think I have some helpful information to add. Firstly, here is a link to the service manual: http://www.espagle.org/doc/45928217/wm3431xx-service-manual-lg/ .

Second, I must warn you that I am doing this from memory (even through it was this morning).

General note: Take not of what screw goes where. There are 5-6 variations.

Steps:

1. Unplug the machine, unscrew the hot water, the colder water, and pull out the drain line from the wall (mine was just hanging into a waste water line, I assume some people have threaded connections).

2. Place the machine in a location that gives plenty of room to access the top as well as the back.

3. Remove the two screws which attach the top panel to the back. Slide the top panel towards the back of the machine, remove and place aside.

4. Remove the screws holding on the top cover/heat shield (this part should have a black tar like cover on top to protect from excessive heat). Lift the top cover and place aside.

5. Remove the screws holding on the back cover. Slide the back cover up slightly and pull the bottom of the cover out. This should free the bottom. Slide the panel downward to free the top. Place aside.

Take a look at the top of the machine, there is a large black duct that says something along the lines of "caution hot." Follow that heating duct towards the back of the machine to the circular cover (this is the fan). Now follow that downward to see the condenser duct (previously described as creamish white). This is part we are trying to detach from the rest of the machine and clean out.

In order to remove this duct from the machine we need to disconnect the heating duct/fan assembly, the small black sensor on the front of the condenser duct, the black tube connected to the condenser duct, and all of the screws holding on the duct itself.

6. Remove the screws holding the heating duct to the drum and the condenser duct. If I remember correctly, there are two at the front of the machine, three along the heating duct, and four by the condenser duct. Make sure you are removing the screws holding the entire duct to the drum/condenser and not the screws that split the duct itself.

7. Once the screws are all out, lift the heating duct/fan assembly slightly and tilt it away from the condenser duct. Place the heating duct/fan assembly on the machine with all of the remaining connections untouched.

8. On the top, front of the condenser tube there is a metal sensor attached to a rubber gromet. This needs to be removed from the condenser tube. It takes a bit of work, but it didn't seem like you could easily damage the gromet if you use a screw driver to pry it out.

9. Unattach the black tube at the top of the condenser tube by squeezing the metal clamp and pulling it away from the condenser tube. My washer had a bit of sealant/glue at the connection. I removed this with a set of pliers in order to disconnect the black tube.

10. Remove the screws holding the condenser tube to the drum. There is one on top and numerous on the back. There is one screw that is not accessible by a screw driver and requires a 5/16 socket and ratchet to remove (or some sort of angled screw driver...)

11. This should free the condenser tube. Remove it and clean out all of the lint. I used a coat hanger as well as the garden hose to get out all the lint. Also take this time to clean out any dirt you can access in the fan and the heating duct.

12. Follow these steps backwards to reattach everything, I hope you remember which screw goes where.

Its very likely I will not check back here, so good luck. I hope there arent too many mistakes in my write up!
