Question about Dryers
OUR DRYER MYSTERIOUSLY QUIT WORKING THIS MORNING. WE'VE TRIED ALL CYCLES, AND NOTHING WORKS. TIMER STILL TICKS WHEN START BUTTON IS PUSHED. IT WORKED FINE UP UNTIL THIS POINT. I'VE CHECKED THE RECEPTACLE AND THE BREAKER, ALL OF WHICH ARE FINE.
Just want to post the solution. After completely disassembled the
dryer down to the motor, I did all component tests as instructed from
the service manual and all passed. I narrow down to the motor and gave
it a straight 110V external source and it did run ok. So, I checked
the hardness terminal at the motor to see if it give the motor the
power and it does not. I pulled out the terminal wire (brown) and
plugged it back making sure that it has good contact and voila... the
motor run as normal.
So the problem is: electrical wire contacts getting loose due to long time motor vibration.
