Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
When you say lower front panel, you do mean the piece under the round door? I'm seeing two metal screws (hexagonal, not flat or phillips head), one on each side; and I can't see how to get leverage on them. The dryer is on a drawer pedestal - does that make any difference?
I finally found a nut driver & 1/4" socket; got the front panel off. The only piece of white plastic I see has black, green, & yellow wires sticking out of it; I assume the black semi-triangle thing in front is the blower housing? I guess the good news is that there isn't a belt on the floor.
It looks like I need to remove parts 62 through 44 to get to it; How do you get the plastic fan blade (37?) off? And am I going to have to do anything with the wires?
There's a flat white plastic piece held on with a metal screw & has two blue wires attached - but they look pretty firmly fixed. Am I looking in the right area? Also, the multitester i have doesn't measure continuity, so I guess I need to go buy one, but if I can identify the fuse, I could just buy both at the same time....
1) Do you have a larger picture of the fuse? The wires are on REALLY tight & I absolutely don't want to break them.
2) When I do finally get the wires off, is it important to remember which wire was attached to which terminal?
I got the wires off & taped them with electrical tape - I'm sure the metal strips were touching; plugged in the dryer & got the same beep & no go, so I guess it's the relay control board.
Can you tell me roughly what they cost? I'll have to get a pro to come do that part - I've already done about as much as I dare.
Thank you for all your help - and $230 plus the technician's time is still cheaper than buying a whole new dryer! I'm really glad I found the site. I will send the "excellent" rating as soon as I send this. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
