Hello,

Intense heat will damage or destroy the Battery. Also, heat will damage or destroy the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) by melting the crystal.

Try the phone with battery charger connected. With Charger connected and powering the phone, try to turn on. The Back light is usually driven by LED s which are robust and can sustain the Dryer heat.

If the phone back light comes on, the the phone electronics is probably OK and will still work as a phone.
The Battery can be replaced, but there is no easy way to replace a bad display.

So, Power with Charger, look for light, try dialing without display.

  • If above suggestions fails , then its better to approach an authorized service center

Hope this helps.

Left phone in rain for 20 min. Very little moisture in phone and water marks untouched, but touch screen non responsive. Hard reset had no effect.


A phone in the rain for 20 mins is way more than enough time for it to get water inside. There still may be hope, but odds are against it. Turn it off now and take the battery out. Get a hair dryer and blow dry it for about 20 or 30 minutes. Don't over heat it, but keep it consistently hot the whole time. Let it cool and try it again. There is normally a white dot somewhere under the battery. If that dot has turned red, you definitely have water damage that voids any warranty you may have had. Good luck with the dryer.

you still might have some moisture in the phone dry it out completely
use a hair dryer but dont get it too hot
you might have to use the hair dryer every 10-20 minutes depending on how hot it gets

My kenmore dryer runs for 5 minutes and shuts off. I have replaced the door switch and ran the dryer with the vent hose detached. Still not working


Try this: Find the sensing bars and clean em with 409 or windex. They may be coated with stuff from dryer sheets. This builds up a moisture barrier. The machine does not FEEL the wetness from the clothes and assumes they are dry.So it shuts down after 5 minutes. Let me know.

My electric dryer shuts off after about 20 minutes of drying


ok sounds like you are using dryer sheets,,,dryer sheets coat the automatic dry sensors and fool the unit into thinking the clothing is dry,,,,replace the sensor or try to clean it if possable with a green scrubbie,,,,also try the time cycle it dose not use the sensor.......www.myabcspace.com/washerwizzards

Phone won't turn on


Get a blow dryer and use that for about 3 to 4 minutes, IF that doesn't work put your phone in a bag of rice it should dry it out.
