Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..does it make any noise trying to start? or just dead ? do you have a model number ? thx
dle 2301w.. does nothing.... light goes on inside when door opened, otherwise no action at all.
does the display come on ?
you push power and nothing lites up?
Correct. push button like normal to begin the setup and nothing happens at all.
have you taken the top up ,checked for power or bad connections to the board ?
Not yet. Online Repair clinic parts outfit indicated likely door switch or thermal fuse. but I got to thinking that the light worked and since the display did not light up sounded like something else. So I am asking you :-)
I can open it up and check for power or bad connections to the board if that is the best way to proceed.
those are what i was getting to next , you can pop the top up and check for the obvious connections to the board ,if you have a meter you can confirm the 220 across red-black 120 from red -white and 120 from black - white ...the thermal fuse can kill the dryer , just because the lite works it is a different circuit ..if you dont have a meter you can join the wires on the thermal fuse as a quick test
thermal fuse is on the blower housing or heater housing , looks like the pic above
I will do that. Thanks.
the front of the dryer has to come off ,after lifting the top
How do I get back to you if it doesnt work ?
just respond back to this question at any time
you can bookmark this chat
I have the thermal fuse replacement video from Repair Clinic and will proceed to that point and check the fuse.
ok sounds good
Checked continuity of thermal fuse. Continuity is okay with flashlight battery. What to look at next ?
Continuity is good on what looks like what might be fuse on blower housing. Same for something else downstream from the thermal fuse (highlimit thermostat ?) . Other suggestions ?
Picked up a multimeter. Confirmed the 220 is good and the continuity responses today. Where to test voltage to see if board bad or further checking of what looks to be other fuse(s) ?
Checked continuity on all fuses located. all okay. checked 120v on each leg......where to check voltage you mentioned previously ?
I get 52v to the plug that goes into that relay. across the plug...
I checked the 220 power at the plug. It is closed inside the cabinet. everything looks tight. pulled on the cord etc and all seems tight.
Not seeing my reply I am resending it:
Yes. there is 120v on each leg to white tested inside the cabinet.
Thank you. I will get a board !
Just did. Will let you know how it comes out.
