    Thanks for quick responce! It is 3 wire set up all the way throughout. It is hooked up just as shown. If tested in between black and white post there is no light on tester. If I disconnect the black wire it tested 110 volts between black wire and white post, or between the black wire and the screw post it came from, or between black wire and the chassie,Thanks again, John

    I'm baffled If I test the dryer breaker in fusebox it test OK for110 volts on each side of the 220 breaker. But when I plug in the dryer in the black side test test negitive. The plug test ok 110 each side aginst the ground. I will get a tester for the 220 test.

    i just need to know a few things:


    • are you trying to connect a 4 wire (4 prong cord) or a 3 wire?

    • when you test the outlet, are you using the neutral or ground (if it is a four wire config)

    • did you connect the neutral to the ground and test it like i requested in the premium solution, if so did it make a difference?

Make sure the green wire is connected like in the picture. this connects directly to the neutral, if it is disconnected when you connect a 3 wire cord then this problem you are having will happen.

    ok when you test it with the neutral still attached to the machine you may be getting a beedback thru the case or neutral and it is tricking you into thinking it is getting the 110v. i dont think that the problem is in the machine.



    this is what i suggest you do.


    • unplug the dryer completely.

    • test the outlet as shown in the picture

    • you must get these readings for the dryer to work.


    the blue arrows show where to test across. it works best with a digital voltage meter ($15 at walmart)

    if possible, test it at the outlet itself. it is more likely that the outlet is bad, than the breaker. if your meter prongs are not long enough to reach inside then take off the cover using the screw in the center of the outlet (turn the breaker off while removing the cover)

The cord at the plug in is burnt but didn't trip the braker and the dryer is not working


Sounds like a loose connection in the plug causing arcing (sparking) cut back the lead and re connect to plug, if not confident ask someone preferably someone electrically minded. Good luck.

Kenmore HE2 Super Capacity won't start. All lights come on, able to select the cycles but when you push the start button, it won't go.


Here are some things to remember when you do this. 1) The breaker for the dryer is generally located outside on the side of the house somewhere near the electric meter. Most 220vac breakers are, which include any electric range, cooktop, wall oven, etc. 2) When your checking the breaker, actually physically touch it. Sometimes breakers can trip a but the spring that actually pulls the breaker to off position is weak and by visual inspection would appear on. Just simply reach in and tap the bar lightly in the off direction. If it pops over to the off position, turn it back on then go check your dryer. If the breaker passes inspection, I would unplug the machine because there migfht be a short at the terminal block where the plug connects to the dryer. After you've unplugged it, remove the back and check to see if everything is ok.
Next, remove the back panel to access this part. Be sure that you unplug the machine before starting. Once the back panel has been taken off and placed aside the thermal switch will be located on the left lower side near the blower housing . It will be thin and long and located near the cycling thermostat that has for prongs on it. On certain machines, the thermal fuse is located in the front. To access this you must remove the kickplate, which can be done by pushing the clips, one on each side jsut above the top of the kickplate, in between the top and abottom portion. The part numbers are the same for either style dryer. To test this part you can either take the wires off it and tie them together then plug the machine back in and see if it starts, or you can use a multimeter and check to see if there is continuity, if there is its good, if not, bad. The thermal fuse will usually be white, and if located in the back, be thin and long with two wires on it, left and right. If in the bottom front, it will be front center on the exhaust duct. Another possible problem is that the door switch isn't functioning properly. You can visually check this by open the door and pressing the switch and listen for a click sound upon pressing and releasing .
In some rare cases the timer itself will prevent the dryer from starting. If you have tested both the thermal fuse and the door switch, and verified that the terminal block where the cord connects are ok then this will be the problem

We have a whirlpool duet front load dryer, why does it beep during a cycle?? when clothes are still wet?


You can perform some Whirlpool electric dryer timer troubleshooting to determine if the timer is faulty or if the cause is somewhere else within the dryer.
  1. Access the Timer
    • Unplug the Whirlpool dryer power cord from the dryer electrical outlet. The timer is inside the control panel on the top of the dryer. Pull the dryer away from the back wall so that the control console can be raised without hitting the wall.
      Remove the single screw on each end of the control console that secures the control console housing to the top of the dryer. Grab the sides of the control console and raise the front of the console up and toward the rear of the dryer. With the control console in the service position you will now be able to test the timer.
    Test the Timer
    • Locate the dryer timer inside the control console. It will be directly behind the dryer timer control knob. There are two wires that connect from the dryer to the dryer timer. Place a piece of masking tape on each wire and write on the tape what terminal each wire attaches. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the wires from the terminal ends on the timer.
      Set the scale on a volt-ohm meter to the RX1 setting to measure the ohms of the timer. Place one probe to one terminal and the other probe to the remaining terminal. You should get a reading between 2,000 ohms and 3,000 ohms. If you do not get this reading, replace the timer.
    Replacing the Timer
    • Pull the control knob off of the timer shaft on the face of the control console. Remove the two screws that secure the timer to the inside of the control console. Pull the timer out and take the timer with you to an appliance repair facility. Compare the new timer to the old timer to make sure that the mounting screws match.
      Place the new timer inside the console and secure the timer with the two retaining screws. Attach the wires to the timer and remove the masking tape from the wires. Lower the control console and reattach the console to the top of the dryer with the retaining screws. Push the control knob back over the timer shaft. Push the dryer back against the wall and plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

I am changing out the dryer cord on my Whirlpool electric dryer from a 3 prong to a 4. there is a green wire with a yellow strip coming from the dryer and grounded on the side of the dryer like a grounding...


Hello. Now that you are upgrading to the four prong you should unhook the green wire with yellow strip coming from the dryer and instead attach the extra green ground cord on the 4 prong to the screw on the side of the dryer. Regards, Joe.

Need to replace roller's on LG Tromm Gas front load dryer. The back seems to be stamped to the side panels. How do you take apart the dryer to get at the inner workings?


Unplug power cord. Remove phillips head screws on the bottom side of the "L" bracket on the back side of the dryer's top. Use the flat sides of your hands to sharply push back on the dryer's top, sliding it back about 2 inches and then lifting it off. Remove screw from top corner front corners and pry control locking tabs off from along top edge. (watch for sharp edges) Swing control panel up onto top of dryer. Remove the two screws at the bottom side of the door opening and the four screws along the top of the front panel. Unplug the light, door switch, and also the moisture sensor (by the bottom of the drum) then remove front panel. Remove four screws holding front drum support and lift up on it a bit to remove. Look at how the belt goes around the motor and pulley before removing, then take out drum. You will need to remove the phillips screws from behind dryer to remove the rear drum support assembly, allowing you to get to the nuts on the back rollers. First time job: maybe 2 hours. Second time: maybe a half hour, tops.

• Be sure the door is latched shut.
• Be sure the power cord is plugged into a live electrical outlet.
• Check the home’s circuit breaker and fuses.
• Press the START button again if the door is opened during the cycle.

If everything checks out ok with the above check list, you may have electrical motor issues. I would run a break point test on the motor and the control panel as well. (You will need a Voltage needle to perform a break point test.)

MAYTAG DRYER ELECTRICAL CONNECTION


If the dryer has a 4 wire cord and you need a 3 wire cord, you should have a jumper, or little metal strip, that came with the dryer. You will connect this jumper between the green ground screw that attaches to the frame and the screw where you white neutral wire lands on the terminal block.

If the dryer is 4 wire and you need it four wire, you simply connect the white to the neutral screw, the black to one of your hot screws, the red to your other hot screw and you green to the green screw connected to your frame. If there is a piece of metal, "jumper" connected from the neutral or white screw and the green screw in the frame you will need to remove this.

Write back if you need clarification.

MAKE SURE THE CIRCUIT IS OFF AND THE CORD UNPLUGGED FROM THE OUTLET BEFORE STARTING. TEST FOR VOLTAGE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING.

Stacking the washer and dryer


Been a while since I did one, but as I recall: Two side pieces secure to top of washer with peel off tape and a screw into the top at the very back of the washer's top. Dryer sets on top of washer with back legs sliding into the stack kit side parts. Front rail holds front dryer legs, secured by one screw on each side into stack kit side pieces after dryer is set on top of washer.
