    My Bosch is awesome but it has a intermittent problem with not starting. I runs great for a couple of month, now nothing. The lights are on, no error reading, but nothing.

    And it ran great all day.

    Any thoughts?

Gary, did you take off the Belt or remove the rear drum support and let the drum drop down? If so then you need to reset the broken belt switch. It is on the motor by the idler pulley. Remove the rear panel again, do not remove the drum support panel. On the motor where you see the idler pulley and belt is a switch with 2 wires and 2 plungers on both sides. Press the one on the left in and it should click. Make sure it doesn't click again when you let go. Now try starting the dryer. I train the repair on this and even techs forget to reset this switch. Hope this helps.

Check filter light blinking will not start only beeps what to do please help


Probably a lint buildup on the sensor. Need to clean the entire lint system. Should be able to remove the plastic frill if the lint filter is inside the drum. Remove the two screws and clean out all the lint then pull the dryer out remove the vent hose. Run a vacuum hose or reach up i to there and pull out the li t. Then clean out the vent hise...a broom handle works if it's a straight shot.

Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

I have a Kenmore HE 3, model number 110.8787,8789. I cleaned the lint screen, unscrewed the plastic that holds the screen and cleaned all lint out. After doing so, my dryer won't start. The lig


when you removed the screen from the inside you disconnected the wires from the 2 metal strips. now you need to remove the lower panel on the front. and reconnect them. you will need a T-20 torx and unplug the dryer to be safe. the wire will have 90 degree push on connectors and it does not have any polarity concerns. the two male connectors are real close to the top of the panel, maybe even slightly under the other panel. By the upper right of the silver fan duct.

Model 11-85862400: Check Lint Screen light blinking and will not start. Cleaned sensor and all bottom inside of dryer. Will not start.


Disconnect power and remove the two screws from the bottom flange of the toe panel then pull the panel down and off the cabinet.

Remove the screw from the lint duct bracket and remove the bracket. Remove the two hex-head screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

Remove the wires from the terminals of the thermal fuse then join them together and insulate the connection properly.

Reconnect power then press start. Replace the thermal fuse along with the thermistor if the dryer starts. The thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if it is blown, power to the motor is terminated and will not run. No dryer function works when the motor doesn't run. The thermal fuse usually blows due to failed thermistor or blocked lint screen or vents. This is the reason the "Check lint screen." message flashes.

Disconnect power, if the dryer still doesn't start, then remove the top panel and check if the belt is still on. The belt activates the belt switch which is also wired in series with the motor and the thermal fuse. The motor will therefore not run if the drive belt is off and the belt switch is not activated.

Check the wire connections on the electronic control board. The electronic control board has indeed failed and needs to be replaced as what the Sears repairman said. The electronic control board is part number 8546219 and it costs about $180.

No heat in dryer. This is a stacked dryer/washer combo. The dryer is electric. The drum turns and timer works but there is no heat in the dryer or exiting the vent. The washing maching beneath the dryer...


The element to heat the dryer has gone out. You removed the back of the dryer to remove lint you will need to remove the back of the dryer again to access the heating element. It is in the lower left or right hand corner (depending on model) and looks like the inside of a toaster oven small thin wires. Take the assembly out (make sure the unit is unplugged always) get the model and serial # and purchase replacement from an appliance parts house.

Good Luck hope this helped you some

LG Dryer Sensor


The moisture sensor is in the lint filter. Remove 4 screws from inside the drum and you have the sensor attached by 2 wires. On my dryer I disconnected then reconnected these 2 wires, reassembled the lint trap and auto dry works fine again

My dryer works properply but doesn't heat


Disconnect power . Remove the panel from rear of dryer . On the long aluminum housing , close to the top , will be a small thermostat piece . Either check this piece for continuity or jump those 2 wires togather and reconnect the power . Check to see if dryer heats . If heats , pt # 279816 is the part you need . Both parts in the kit , must be replaced . If the dryer does not heat , disconnect power , reconnect the wires and check the element with an ohm meter . The wires for the element , are the 2 wires at the bottom of the housing . If no continuity , pt # 279838 is the element number .

IF THE BURNER DOES NOT LIGHT --
On gas models of the F&P top load dryer, there is a reset button for the gas igniter. Take the front panel off as described above and you will see some orange wires leading to the front of the burner. Remove those (one side has two orange wires, the other one - note which is which; generally the two wire connection is on the left) and the reset button is between them. Press it, replace the wires and start the dryer. The gas should light in about 15 seconds. If it does let it run for 10 minutes or so to insure it is fixed. Then shut down and replace the front panel.

IF THE BURNER LIGHTS THEN SHUTS OFF --
Check the lint trap as described above and also check the lint vent outside the house. My vent goes up through the roof and the lint builds up about every two years. You can by a vent cleaning brush off eBay for less than $20.
