Question and Answers

Q:

noisy DLL3680SBLWH

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears and contacting us with your question about your Hotpoint dryer model DLL3680SBLWH. I am so sorry it is making a vibration noise.  I will be happy to help you with this. 

There are several things that can cause a vibration in the dryer. Start by verifying the dryer is level. Also make sure all four leveling feet are making firm contact with the floor. 
If the dryer is well balanced, next check the internal parts that can wear over time. This includes the blower assembly, the belt, the slide bearings and the door gasket. A worn part no longer maintains constant contact with the other parts it works with. When the part slips, a vibration may result. I have included our troubleshooting guide. Although the dryer in the examples are not the same as yours, the guides will still give you an idea of what to look for. 

SAFETY WARNING: Disconnect the power supply before beginning your project to prevent the risk of electrical shock which can result in property damage, serious personal injury or even death. Internal parts may have sharp edges. Use caution and wear work gloves to prevent serious cuts. If you are not comfortable completing this repair, you can set up service at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME).

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Q:

Dryer isn't heating DLL3680SBLWH Hotpoint Gas dryer

A:

Thanks for the information about your dryer model DLL3680SBLWH, sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. Based on your description of no heat at all in the dryer, I would suspect that the igniter is not coming on so that the burner will ignite. This is the most common failure (the igniter going bad), however there could be other causes. You can determine if the issue is in the heat circuit prior to the burner by checking the two leads to the burner assembly. If there is 120 volts ac to the two leads to the burner assembly then the heat circuit is okay and the issue is in the igniter, flame sensor or gas valve assembly. If there is not power to the burner assembly then you will need to check the heating circuit, cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, motor switch and related wiring.  You will find a wiring diagram in the console of the dryer._Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_I hope this helps you determine the cause of you no heat issue, if you need more help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond.
