ELECTRICDryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Checkyour venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuityit should showOHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defectiveor has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter(VOM)set to the RX1 scaleat 20K ohms. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12. (1200)ohms.If the reading is higherohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,OR?you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposedto be if the motor does not run, the heater should not heat in order not to createafire but ifthe motor is not running,andthe heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In somedryer'sthecontrol panel relies on athermistorrather than aCYCLING thermostatto regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when thethermistorindicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drumthis is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor.( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shutdown early and clothesare still wet.
Test with a meterat room temperatureand it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run timein the automatic moisture sensing cyclebut it will not affect the heatingof the dryer or the timed cycle.Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Be aware the fridge works with deadly voltages. If you have not enough technical knowledge, please don't do this yourself.
With a multi meter you can measure if the voltage you apply is entering the fridge. There is not much in a fridge. You find a on / of switch, a thermostat en mostly an override switch too short a thermostat. So if you measure a voltage coming is, follow the wiring and check what the thermostat does. if it won't switch you have the cause. If it does switch, follow the wiring, and if the aggregate gets a voltage and does not run, you have a defective aggregate. I can't think of more.
Good Luck.

the drain pipe could be having a block. some times buttons and coins are the culprits.

The F10 error can be caused by a faulty relay or electronic control board if the oven overheated while in use. If you unplug the range and the error occurs when the range is cool, then the over-temperature sensor has failed or the electronic control board is faulty. Even the wiring between parts could be faulty.

You need to check sensor and wiring. On some models, the oven temperature sensor probe can be accessed by opening the oven door. Look for two screws that are close together. Otherwise it's accessed from the back of the oven. It may be covered by an access panel. Unplug the wiring harness and check the resistance across the sensor with a multi-meter. It should give 1100 Ohms. Similarly check the wiring resistance from the probe to the control board. Also check the relay and that wiring. Replace the wiring, sensor or relay if those are faulty. Otherwise you need to replace the control board. The control board will be behind the console access panel. Somewhere on the back of the range, there will be a trouble-shooting sheet giving the wiring diagram and the expected resistance or voltage across the parts of the range.

I may be able be able to provide a parts diagram and price list for parts on your range. Please add a comment with the model number of the range for this information.

I hope this helps.

you may need a check Freon level to see if its low , usually if u have low Freon level you can touch the condenser fan rails and they should be cold because when it has Freon and it liquefies into gas it creates heat hence the coils will then get warm and hot, if they are hot or warm it may not be a low Freon level issue? I would also check the freezer thermistors , see pics there may be more than 1 thermistor in freezer section , u can also check the compressor ur self to verify as not all appliance techs are reputable or knowlagable
