Question and Answers

Q:

dryer drum IES5000RQ0 Inglis Residential dryer

A:

The door switch is defective. That switch should "open" to stop the dryer when that door is open. 

 

I recommend that you replace that door switch (part 3406107).  Unplug the dryer. Remove the lint screen from the housing. Remove the two screws that secure the top panel to the lint screen housing. Release the clips under the front lip of the top panel and lift the top panel up. Prop the top panel securely against the back wall behind the dryer. Unplug the existing door switch from the wire harness. Remove the screws that mount the door switch to the front panel. Install the new door switch and reassemble the dryer.

Q:

The dryer does not turn on when you press the button. You can hear the timer running but not anything else? IES5000RQ0 Inglis Residential dryer

A:

Hello Jeanette. I am sorry to hear about the problems that you are having with your Inglis Dryer Model IES5000RQ0.

 

Since the timer motor runs, this indicates that you have proper voltage supplied to the dryer. I posted a wiring diagram in the first image below. The voltage supply through the drive motor is traced in blue. You could have a bad timer, a failed start relay, a bad drive motor, a defective door switch or a wiring failure in that circuit that would prevent the dryer from running.

 

I recommend that you check the thermal fuse first. You can unplug the dryer and remove the back panel to access that fuse.  The second image below shows the location of that thermal fuse on the blower housing. It should have blue wires attached to it. With the dryer unplugged, you can connect the two blue wires together and tape them with electrical tape for a brief test. Plug the dryer back in briefly and see if it will start with that fuse bypassed. (Do not touch any internal components while the dryer is plugged in with that back panel removed.) Open the door to shut off the dryer and unplug it as soon as that brief test is completed. If the dryer runs with that fuse bypassed then the fuse will need to be replaced. Do not continue to run the dryer with that thermal fuse bypassed. 

 

You can order parts from this page:  Inglis Dryer Model IES5000RQ0 Repair Parts.

 

Note: If that thermal fuse was blown, then you will need to check the exhaust vent duct path to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction. That type of problem could have caused the thermal fuse to blow. A new thermal fuse will blow again shortly after being installed if you do not resolve an exhaust air flow problem.

 

If the thermal fuse is not causing your problem (the dryer does not run even with that fuse bypassed) then you can check the door switch in a similar manner.  Be sure that you unplug the dryer when accessing internal components.

 

The third image shows how to lift the top panel of the dryer to access the door switch.

If the door switch is okay, you could have one of the other failures listed above such as a bad start relay. If you need more help with diagnosing this problem, reply with additional details.
