  5. I have a Kenmore Series 80 Gas Dryer. The dryer came with the house. I cannot find a model number or serial number on it, and actually, the Kenmore name on the front appears to be covered in white out. So I can't be more specific about the model. The unit is not running - but the timer is, and it won't stop. We had a load which more or less successfully completed the other night as the clothes were dry. When I went to get the clothes, I found the timer had advanced to the next cycle. The unit wasn't running though. I found that if I set the timer to any normal cycle, I'd get a buzzing sound, but nothing much was happening. There was also a smell - a vague burning smell. I took the unit apart, pulled out the drum, put it back, etc. When I opened the top back, it seemed to me that the timer itself had a latent burning smell. Since the timer had advanced when it shouldn't have; since I could manually turn the drum and motor and saw nothing wrong with the belt; and since the timer itself smelled faintly as though it had burnt out; I went ahead and order a new timer. I ordered a Whirlpool 3976576A timer. It arrived, it is an exact match. It does not solve the problem. In trying the new timer, though, I found that the timer-won't-stop thing is persisting. I left the timer to go on its own for a few minutes to see if in fact it would try to advance into a cycle. It did, though the unit still won't run. But there is clearly something burning. It is much more obviously something electrical (as opposed to the belt). I found the smell really wasn't present inside the cabinet, but it is present inside the top back panel where the timer is, and it is also present further below following the line of wires. I can't, on visual inspection, see anything wrong with any particular wire. The control board does not look amiss either, and it really does not seem like the smell is emanating from the control board. But I can't pinpoint the smell exactly. The problem, to me, is obviously electrical. The timer won't stop (when the door is closed); the unit won't run no matter what. When the timer is in a cycle it is buzzing. I do have a multimeter but I frankly don't know what to even try and test. I don't usually deal with electrical issues like this. I am hoping that the description of the problem sounds familiar to someone and they can point me in a clearer direction.

  10. Okay, this PitA of a unit is going to drive me to drink(more).  Went out there in December because the lady complained that the unit would not run through a whole cycle and would not heat. The unit would start at the normal time but within 5 minutes would shut off. The countdown advanced similar to how it would if you had nothing in it and the sensors didn't detect any moisture. The unit did this on all cycles, time based and sensor based. So even a timed dry of 40 minutes would drop time quickly and end cycle. I found that the heating element was broken and grounding. I replaced the whole element, cleaned out the unit and tested it. It ran through fine, heated normally, no more weird countdown problem.  So a few weeks later she calls me back saying it's doing it again. So I sigh, make the long trip back out to her house and test it. It is doing it again, but this time I have a handy dandy air flow tester for dryers! So I check air flow with the ducting on and off and get two very different readings. I try running the unit with the vent off the back and sure enough it runs like a champ no problems. Okay, plug it back up and check outside to see what's going on. Not seeing much air flow outside, looks like a possible ducting issue that's presenting really oddly. Inform the customer and I'm on my way. So I just checked my phone and saw a text message from her saying it was doing that stupid countdown thing again. At this point, I'm completely stumped. I couldn't find anything wrong with the main board when I went out there the first time, just the issue with the heater. The second time the unit started working normally with the ducting off, indicating to me there was a air flow issue. I have no clue what I'm in for this time but I'm hoping someone else has seen this or something like this and can give me an idea of something to check for because I, quite frankly, have not a clue as to what's going on.

  13. Estate Dryer (by Whirlpool) Model #ETW4400WQ0 Dial sticks on rinse cycle. It will fill fully with water but then the clothes just sit there in the full tub of water (no agitation or any other process runs at that time). We have to manually push in the dial, turn it to spin and pull the dial back out. It doesnt do it all the time but it does it frequently. Any ideas how to keep it from continuing to  stick? Thanks! 
  14. Returned to the dryer to find it running, clothes dry, clothes not warm. Lint screen was loaded with lint. Timer was still in original time setting.  Cleaned out lint  in preparation for next load. The dryer would not start no noise, nothing.  I did rush out to buy a new thermal fuse before the dealer closed up. Came home and figured I would trouble shoot and learn my way around this repair before simply swapping out the thermal fuse. Thermal Fuse, Push to Start Switch, Door Switch and Thermostat all tested positive (continuity) while isolated. I made a jumper wire lead with alligator clips and decent old extension cord. Drum Motor and Timer Unit (in turn) operated normally while receiving power straight from 120v outlet. Timer Unit tested positive for continuity at black to blue prongs, but at brown to tan prongs, did not make it all the way over to zero on my analog multimeter. Good grief...starting over, I bypassed the thermal fuse by fixing together both blue wire terminal with a thin bit of tape stretched around both. Set the timer, pushed start and it started right up with good heat. I tested the old thermal fuse again and still shows good. At this point, the heck with trying to save ten bucks on the fuse, out came the new fuse. Hooked it to the blue wires, NOTHING. It will only run if the fuse is bypassed. Please help! Thanks, Therm

  21. Hello. I have a GE dryer model DDE7209RALWW, which I've had for 22 years. It is having a problem, and I was trying to decide whether to fix it or replace it. I called a repairman to ask some questions, but haven't had him come yet.  Someone in another thread said that it is one of the best dryers ever made, so I'd like to fix it instead of getting a new dryer. I don't know anything about fixing appliances, but my husband might try if we can get some help. Or at least to know whether to call the repairman or try it ourselves.  The dryer has been repaired twice for fairly inexpensive problems, but unfortunately I don't remember what was done. The problem now: I pressed the start button, but it didn't start running at first. It made a long buzzing noise for about 4 seconds and then started, but it sounded noisy as it ran.  I decided to let it run and see what happened. It did make some noises, but dried the clothes. I tried to start it again to see what would happen, and it made the drawn-out buzzing sound again but wouldn't start turning. Then I pushed the button again, and it won't do anything.  Can you tell what might be wrong? Thank you!  
  22. WED6200SW1 model cabrio dryer. Stopped running, was displaying F01 error code in diagnostic mode. Checked all the connections to the main board, everything looked okay so I replaced it. Still would not work, can't remember the new code but research suggested I replace the control interface. That didn't help either. Now the dryer will power on but wil not run. In normal mode, when you press the start button the "sensing" light comes on. In dianostic mode -- door tests ok (beeps when opened and closed), moisture sensor tests ok (beep when connected by one finger). After the "88" appears, when I press the same button used to put it into diagnostic mode, I get "Pr" followed by "23". When I press the START button in diagnostic mode, I get code "C5". I can't find any documentation on these wacky codes anywhere. I was planning to step through the troubleshooting (on the tech sheet) to see if I can track it down. Any suggestions or shortcuts?
