Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer working fine, in middle of a load it just died. No power to anything. Touch screen does not display anything. Interior light does not come on. Checked the house breaker and it is fine. Unplugged dryer from wall for 20 min and plugged back in to reset, no change in dryer. Checked the outlet with multimeter and I have power. Is there an internal fuse in the dryer I can check? I work with power/electronics for a living but cant find a wiring diagram or any internal schematics for this dryer! Any advice/links would be apprecaited!

What is error code F30?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer 3 months old

"AF" is a restricted air flow condition. You say you've only had your dryer for 3 months, but have you ever cleaned the ducting? You need to check the lint screen> after every load, AND you need to perform routine cleaning of the dryer venting (inside the dryer, as well as the vent line from the dryer to where it exits the house) about every three months. If left in this condition, the dryer heating circuitry will eventually failed and/or you could cause a fire hazard. An easy way to check to see if you have a clog somewhere is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer. Run the dryer to see if you have air flow coming from the back of the unit. The air should be about 140 degrees F and forceful. Check to see if the error comes back. If everything runs fine, then you know the problem exists in the vent line between the dryer and where it exits the house. If you still have problems, you will need to unplug the dryer, remove the back panel and inspect the interior for clogs. At least you have a dryer that warns you when the air flow become restricted or blocked. Most dryers> will continue to run until they overheat or fail. I hope this information is helpful. Post back with your comments and let me know

The touch screen stopped working this morning. Can't do anything. Is there a reset button for the computer?


Re: the touch screen stopped working this morning. Can't do anything. Is there a reset button for the computer?
No there is not. If the touch screen is blank and you know that you have power at the outlet, then the computer module has been fried and will need to be replaced.
Possible reasons for a computer module going bad are most commonly due to power surges. If you plug in an outlet surge suppressor then plug your computerized washer and dryer into it, that will save you BIG $$$ over time.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 dryer model # 110.8483220. It has no power. We tested the plug and it tests for 110V of power, and the wire connection at the top of the dryer (on the outside) has power. But...


Your dryer is electric. This means it needs 2 electrical phases (hot wires) and one neutral to wor. If you measure 110v across 2 phases - one of them is out.
Unplug the dryer. Find the double breaker for your dryer on the breaker panel.
Pull breaker to the off position hard (do not overdo it,as you can pull the breaker out), and then back to on position.
Check voltage between the two phases, it should read 220-240v. Check the voltage between each phase and the neutral (middle prong), should read 110-120v. If you don't get these readings - call electrician.
If you get the proper voltage, plug the dryer back in. If it does not work - Dryer needs repair. Likely a thermal fuse is blown or problem with power wiring inside.

Touch screen


As a thought you may want to re-initiate the electronics. Don't know if this can help but it might:

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.
This takes you through a processes of initializing the touch screen. I have a different problem on my Harmony dryer but I've used this to check diagnositcs.

Regards,

Robert...

Touch screen quit working.


We had the same problem with the touch screen erratically not working. Then the blower stopped working. Initially, we thought it was the blower motor. Our technician said it was the main circuit board that needed to be replaced. This is covered in the 5 year manufacturers warranty.
