If the button makes clicking sounds while turning then it is attached to the timer replacing the timer is not that hard make a picture of all the wires what color they are and where they attach on timer be sure an unplug unit from wall before working on this usually there are about four to six screws that hold that cover that the large button is located when you get those out then pull the cover backwards that button is on an the timer will be exposed right behind button you can pull off one wire at a time an place it on the new timer by laying them side by side once again be sure that electric has been disconnected

My Bosch Nexxt 500 dryer is TOO HOT.


You need to take care of this right away. Too many houses catch fire from lack of maintenance on dryers. Pull it away from the wall and unplug it. Check the inside of the duct work and clean it out. Then check the inside of the drier connection too. Run it without the duct connected and see if you have good air flow.

My hotpoint aquarius tumble drier is making a very lound griding sound as it turns. What can it be and can it be repaired by myself? the drier is over 8years old is it time for a new one?


This is the plastic "wheel" on the motor that drags the drive belt to spin the dryer. you will need to push back into place with something thin. under the right hand side of the dryer there will be a grill under the motor. look for a black plastic "wheel" and move it away from the casing with something that can fit through the grill.

Amana electric dryer will heat but only when.../ LEA60AW


Hi there,

It seems there is some wire loose, check on the both side of heating element points.
The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter.

Good Luck!!
Thanks

Drier button does not work when push it to start machine


You need to check the dryer door switch. I may be bad. If the timer is clicking it is probably working fine. Also you need to check that the dryer is getting power to the unit. Check your breakers and also pull the unit out and look at the dryer cord. Check the terminals for a short or burnt looking one. Once you have established you have power going to the unit, you can find where the comunication stops within it.

Roper Drier no heat and continuous run for two hours


Your drier heating elements operates on 220 voltage, the drum and clock operate on 110, so you either have a blown fuse in one side of the fuse box ( easy fix )some time the circuit breaker will just need to be reset by turning it off and back on, or your heating elemant has opened up and will be more expences to fix, or it could just be a wire end has burned off. unplug plug from outlet remove back from drier and have a look see, and if bychance you have forgotten to clean your link trap if could be a high temp safety that has open and sometimes can be reset by pushing the reset button, all this is inside the back of the drier, if after that it may be time to call your friendly repair shop
