Question and Answers

Q:

dryer not woking

A:

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

You did not mention whether or not the dryer heats. The first link above will give some direction on loading. The first thing I recommend is disconnecting the vent hose on the back of the dryer. Then ventilate the laundry area real well. Put a regular load of washed clothes in the dryer and start a timed cycle. Measure the temperature of the exhaust for several minutes. The temperature should get to around 150-160 degrees for a high and then down to around 120 degrees as the dryer cycles the heat on and off. If you see temperatures close to these, you most likely have a vent restriction and will need to have the vents cleaned. If the dryer is not heating, check the house breakers. This dryer will have 2 dedicated breakers and will run on one and will not heat if the second one is tripped.

The remaining checks will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have a meter and are confident in your ability to safely perform these checks, reply to this post and I will be happy to assist you further.

Due to the complexity of this dryer, I highly recommend having a trained service technician evaluate this problem. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.
