Question and Answers

Q:

i never got answer..on dryer ler7646aw0...does the buzzer need to be connected to run..

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The end of cycle signal does NOT have to be connected in order for the dryer to start and run.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Larry: According to the parts breakdown I see a timer, pust to start switch w/relay, temperature switch and the end of cycle signal. If the component has a stem then it should have a knob attached and it should be labeled on the console because I don't see a component with an orange and pink wire attached. Look on the component for a part number and reply back.

A:

Larry: That is a power resistor and it has nothing to do with starting the dryer. It is used to advance the timer when it's in the automatic dry cycles and the resistor is shown in the wiring diagram.

on dryer ler7646aw0...i tested fuse with ohm reader...that appears not to be prob.i tested door switch not prob..put new switch in..not prob

The wires can be connected to the buzzer in either location as long as you have the correct wires attached to it. It should not matter which contact the wire is connected to. The wire colors do not seem to match the colors that are indicated on the wiring diagram.

If you are not able to get the dryer running, I recommend that you have a service technician physically examine the dryer and check the wiring. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

A:

You are probably referring to our Expert Joey who told your that the attached item is a power resistor. That does sound correct. Joey and I discussed this problem that you are having. He provided you with information for testing the motor. If the motor is good then you probably have a wiring failure or a bad timer. I recommend that you have a service technician examine the dryer and determine the cause of this failure. A wiring failure or timer problem is often difficult to diagnose and repair.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I added the wiring diagram with the start circuit traced in red and green. The motor must have 120 volts present at the motor when measuring across 4M and 5M when start is pushed. 4M is the line voltage and 5M is neutral.

NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
