The full tank light remains on even though the tank is empty. Is there a sensor which stops the dryer from restarting

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full. The microswitch with electromechanical control switches off the dryer (the timer motor is powered and ends its cycle) and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.
The tank capacity is about 3.5 lt., enough for a drying cycle.

- Remove the screw (1) which secures the support micro and use a screwdriver for the two hooks which secure it to the sump.

- Lift them simultaneously and unthread the micro support towards outside

Putting upside down the support you can access the floating microswitch.

To extract it rotate the float 90° clockwise as shown.
Lift it up, rotate it towards outside and extract it.

While reassembling the pump, the float and the tank microswitch, repeat the same operations backwards, paying attention that when the micro support is remounted it is necessary to use a screwdriver in the fissure (indicated by the arrow), to lift the micro lever and lean it over the float (if this operation is not carried out the lever of the micro comes up alongside the float (it deforms) and the two components do not function anymore.

Zanussi condenser dryers

It can be mechanical or electrical malfunction. I would check tank microswitch, float and lever.
Below is explained how the condensate drainage system works and that will facilitate fault detection.

The warm and cold air circuits cross inside the heat exchanger, which results in a thermal exchange which condenses the humidity contained in the warm air. The condensation which forms in the heat exchanger is collected in a sump, from which it falls by gravity into a tank. When the water in the tank reaches the max. level, the level of the water in the sump increases, which causes the float to move upwards, thus actioning a microswitch; The microswitch for dryers with electronic board sends a signal to the electronic circuit when the tank has been filled, switches off the appliance and lights a pilot lamp which indicates to the user that the tank is full.

Clothes aren't getting dry

Check your vent hose and where it exits the building, clean away all lint anything blocking the vent cap or in the vent hose. Remove the vent from the back of the dryer and make sure it is all clean and clear there and make sure the betn is not kinked up when putting the dryer back into it space. Now before you blow me off, if any of this is true for your dryer the heat will build up and trip the thermostat causing it not to heat properly and the blower wheel can not move the air to collect the moisture and remove it from inside the dryer. Also, any sagging vent line can collect moisture which turns to a puddle of water in the line and this to will not allow your dryer to dry the clothes. Good luck I hope I have helped you.

I have a Amrstrong Astro 25B050S recirculating pump on my 50 gallon State water heater (both installed in 2006). The timer works fine and the I can hear the Astro pump and the pump feels very hot to the...

If the pump is very hot, unplug it.
Heat damages motor coil and indicates that pump is not rotating at correct speed, or not rotating.
Take apart and clean inside pipe with white vinegar or CLR to see if pump rotor can be freed to rotate.
If pump does not rotate after cleaning, then replace pump.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

How does tumble dryer work?

The heated air inside the dryer is not expelled but reused. The drum is contained inside a closed area. The heat is contained inside the dryer. No ducting to outside is needed. The moisture is removed from the heated air through a condenser before re-entering the drum. Sorta like a giant self-contained dehumidifier. As the water is removed from the clothes, it puddles up into a drain pan which periodically needs dumping. Fancier models pump out the water to standing drainpipes. This design saves energy.

Warm air in cab but not getting the required heat . thermostat is good , core is new . but no inside heat

squirrel cage (from what i understand is the name) could be bad. its essentially the fan type blade looks kind of like a hamster wheel could have stopped rotating and isnt blowing the air into the cab. also could be your water pump. if the blade on the pump is bad then it could be circulating enough water to keep the truck cool but not enough pressure to send it to the heater core to generate the heat needed.

While drying water puddles from underneath the dryer and also drips from the control knobs.

If your dryer is leaking water, then you have a serious clog in the exhaust vent ducting somewhere. The water comes from condensation inside the dryer exhaust. As your clothes dry, warm moist air is exhausted out the dryer exhaust vent ducting. If you have any kinks, excessive bends, sags, or excessively long ducting runs, they can create choke points for lint to accumulate. Once the lint accumulates, it begins to collect moisture. As it collects moisture, it will act as a sponge and collect more lint until the dryer becomes completely clogged. Left in a clogged state, the dryer begins to overheat and dries less efficiently. You may notice longer dry times or an excessively hot dryer. Eventually the dryer heating circuits will fail. This can also become a fire hazard if the lint becoimes so backed up that it begins to collect on, or near, the heating element.

If you have not checked the dryer ventilation any time recently, now may be a good time to do so. I recommend checking it about once per season to ensure it is not obstructed. Make sure you are also using the semi-rigid metal type ducting. It resists crushing, kinking, resists heat better, and resists rodent infestation.

NOTE: Mice are notorious for building nests inside dryers. Give them a warm place with bedding material and they will make it a home.

Make sure the exhaust vent is at least 12 inches off the ground. This will deter mice and others pests (like snakes or birds) from entering the dryer exhaust from the outside. If you place a cover on the vent, make sure it is of the louvered variety. Do not use screens. They will collect lint and clog easily.

An easy test to determine if you have an exhaust problem is to remove the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer. Turn the dryer on and allow it to run. The air leaving the back of the dryer should be forceful and warm. If the air flow is weak, you need to check the dryer interior. If the air flow is normal, reattach hose and run the dryer again. This time, check the exhaust vent where it exits your home. Again, the air flow should be forceful and warm. If not, you have a clog somewhere in the ventilation ducting which will require cleaning.

NOTE: If you are using plactic ducting, get rid of it. It collapses easy, rips and mice will chew right through it.

In addtion, many home owners unknowingly will push the dryer against the wall and crush the hose behind it. This will also clog the vent and make the dryer inefficient. Leave about a 1 foot space behind the dryer for proper ventilation and ensure the vent hose does not get crushed. Semi-rigid hose will prevent this from happening.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I have seen this problem many times. Let me know what you find and if I can be of further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore gas dryer

kuki, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse is blown, it will rotate but will not heat. If your dryer front has a lower panel, the fuse will be in front behind the blower housing. If not, it will be in back just like this pic. Ohm it out or jump it out temp to see if that is the problem. Post back, Catriver
