Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Joel thank you for your interest in our service. If you have been waiting a while
I apologize we try to help as many customers as possible in a timely manner. I am now
available to help you with your question.
could you give me the model number of the dryer, and did you replace the high limit thermostat? the cycling thermostat?
you need to replace the thermistor its only thing left you have not
if its bad it wont heat
ya that was not the problem unfortunatley and one sec I have a video stored that will show that info, tell you exactly how to get to it and so on give me one sec let me dig it up for you
also in the middle of a bad thunderstorm here so If i disappear I lost electricity but I will be back asap hopefully I dont.
Im still trying to find the video cant seem to locate it, I must ask you have you tested the voltage coming into the dryer? you must have 220 volts, if only one leg is sending voltage, you may be only getting 110v which will run the motor but not the element
usually a bad if the thermistor is bad it will just cut off and not run
also there should be another thermostat on the element housing it should have continuity as well
if not then its bad.
have you verified 220 volts to the dryer?
do you mean black and burned looking as in crispy?
you need to verify you are getting 220 volts to the dryer first off, it will run with 110 volts but not enough voltage for heating element to work. put your meter on ac volts put one lead where the dryer cord attaches to dryer on the far left terminal and the other on the far right and your meter should read 220 volts.
you have verified its actually getting 220 volts with a voltage meter?
umm i would not splice that ..... I would go purchase a new cord and that very well could be the problem it looks bad.
****You would be suprised at the people that get help and do not bother*******
PLEASE take into consideration we are on the honor system for our time, all I ask is that
you take this time to rate my service using the STAR RATING SYSTEM at the top of your page
or wherever the 5 star rating system is located on your page (sometimes it's hard to find
but it's there). Rating me will not in any way cost you anymore than you have already paid.
We techs only get a SMALL PORTION of whatever you have chosen to pay after a good star
rating is chosen. This is the only way I am credited through the site for my time. This will
also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions. TIPS are not
expected but are GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks.
the problem is you are not getting 220 volts because of that bad connection on the left, you also need to see about getting that terminal block fixed properly the part your cord screws into should be secured to the terminal block, you can purchase a new terminal block at any appliance parts store.
Hey sorry I never hit the button that I was ready to be rated so it wont show up on your end if I don't. That was my fault. Thank you very much, you should be able to rate me now. I am glad you got it fixed.
I see this question is still open, If there is nothing else I can do for you concerning this issue would you please rate my service by choosing a star at the top of the page so that I
can put this question on my completed list. Thank You so much for your understanding and
