Does the time display count down ? after you select a cycle and press and hold start.
I asked if it counted down because you stated it would not start.
Are you NOW saying that the unit will start?
Ok your not making sense ((Started new load ......won't start. Got it to start still on "sensing though.))
Is the unit running or not?
Ok key word is I`m not a mind reader
Hello I am a different tech the other one opted out. Can you briefly explain where you are at with this unit, I have read the posts and am trying to get you going again.
Ok jumper out the high limit thermostat..the white plastic one on the blower housing. Connect the two wires together and tape them up see if it runs normal length of time...I find they often will test good and even run for just a bit then fail. Let me know what you find.
Ok so it still only runs for a couple minutes then shuts down right? Also are you running it on the timed setting or auto?
Ok what does it do when it does not start? Does it click?
Ok can you remove the control board and check the solder joints on the relays on the backside of the board. Often the board joint goes bad and causes this issue.
Ok remove the top and the main control board off to the left and then remove it from the case and inspect the solder joints on the backside of the board.
Does the motor hum or growl when not starting?
Ok then you either have a bad connection to the motor or bad connection at the motor, but can you upload me a picture of the backside of the main control board?
Yes that is fine just please do that thanks!
Also you can tap on the motor relay after it stops running the relay may have a bad contact in it causing the whole issue.
SO the heater is on when the unit is not tumbling?
Not all the coil will be red it should just be a dull orange on most of it.
