Question and Answers

Q:

dryer not working

A:

The PF indicates that you have a power failure occurring when you are trying to start the dryer. This can be caused by a loose wiring connection or a problem with the outlet. A failed transformer for the control board could also cause this problem. A service technician will normally need to diagnose and repair this type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

NOTE: Due to the age of this dryer, the transformer is no longer available. According to your symptoms, there is a good possibility that this is the failed component. Based on the age of the dryer and the availability of parts, you may need to replace the dryer instead of repairing it.

Hello Freemont, Lyle is off today and my name is Joey S. Lyle asked me to reply to your question this AM. Your dryer appears to be made around the middle of 1987 going by the documentation date on the parts image of your dryer. The Transformer Secondary voltages are as follows: These will be marked on the microcomputer board, TG to TR1 (orange) = 10VAC, TG to TR (brown) = 10VAC, The input voltage to the primary at TP1 (black) to TP2 (white) is 120 VAC. Note: If the cycle following a Power Failure (PF) is stopped before the end of the cycle, PF may continue to flash in the display each time the dryer is turned on. To Clear PF, touch the following selection pads in this order: Custom Memory, Start, Custom Memory, OFF. I hope this helps. I attached the wiring diagram to your e-mail.

Yes, there should be constant voltage across TP1 and TP2. TP1 is the line voltage and TP2 is the Neutral. Jim, if you do not measure any voltage across TP1 and TP2 then it likely has an open thermal fuse or the belt could be broken which will cause the broken belt switch to open and break Neutral to TP2. TP1 is L1. If the thermal fuse opens it will prevent any Line One voltage to TP1.

Jim, the thermal fuse is located on the blower housing and the belt swith is located below the idler pully. You should be able to access both by removing the lower access panel.

The thermal fuse is key#59 and the belt switch is key#5. Remove the lower access panel key#61 by inserting a putty knife above key#46 and push inwards while pulling out on the upper corner and repeat on the other side. See image below.

Yes, the blower housing will have flexible vent pipe connected to it. You will see two components mounted on top of the blower housing, the one closest to the top is the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse should measure continuity.

Be sure you jump out the thermal fuse and not the thermistor. The component mounted in the lowest position is the thermistor and not the thermal fuse. You can jump out the thermal fuse but not a thermistor.
