Dryer Repairs

Before you take apart a malfunctioning dryer, check the simple but often overlooked trouble spots. If the unit will not start, look for either a blown fuse or a loose plug. If you find the clothes are not being adequately dried, the lint trap or the exhaust duct may be clogged.
When these faults have been ruled out, proceed in the order indicated below. Check the thermostats and the door switches with a continuity tester, then look for obvious failures in electric heating elements, or if you have a gas unit call a service man. If the drum does not turn even though all electrical circuits are working, the drive belt may be broken, how easy it is to replace one depends on the type of machine.
All these tasks require the removal of one or more of the outer panels. Most are secured with clips or with sheet-metal screws. Important: Unplug the unit before starting any tests or repairs.
Testing thermostats
If a machine will not produce heat, check the heating element 'opposite) and thermostats. Most thermostats have contacts that are closed at room temperature and open when hot. To check such a thermostat remove it from the machine (for typical location, clip continuity tester to one of its terminals and touch the testers probe to the other: the tester should light. Then hold the thermostat briefly near a flame intense heat for more than a moment will damage it. A click should be heard and the tester light should go out. If the thermostat is the type that is closed when hot and open when cool the tester light should be off during the cold test, on during the flame test
.
1 Starting the heating cycle
When the timer is set, the main-motor arm is forced up onto the high part of the machine. The arm presses both the main-motor contacts and the heater contact together to turn on both the motor and the heater, starling the drying cycle. The unit begins to rotate when the operating thermostat. Previously selected by pushing a button or turning a knob on the control panel, lets the timer motor go on.

2 Timing the cool-down period
As the drying cycle continues, the rotating allows the main-motor arm to fall into the first of two notches. Both the main-motor arm and the center arm drop from the upper contact. Breaking the heater circuit and shutting it off. But the downward movement does not separate main-motor arm and center arm, the main-motor contacts stay together to operate fan and drum as the clothes cool.

3 Turning off the dryer
the unit continues to rotate during the cool-down period as the clothing temperature drops to a comfortable range. Then lets the main-motor arm drop into the deepest notch. Now the main-motor arm separates from the center arm, breaking the circuit to the motor and stopping fan and drum. More complex units may have additional contacts to control panel lights and cycle signals.
