Dryer stopped working about 6 months ago.  Replaced the Push to Start switch as a local parts told me that it sounded like it had went.  Still will not work.  Discovered this Fourm from a friend.  Have checked everyting we can think of.  Jumpered the thermal switch to see if it had burned out with no luck.  How can I check ti see if the motor is getting power?

thermal fuse and door switch are the first 2 suspects.

if those are ok you got to get a volt meter and the schematic to figure it out

in general if the motor is getting power you will get some type of noise

To alcohol! The cause of... and solution to... all of life's problems.

Jumpered the door switch and thermal fuse. Nada.  have a basic knowledge of the scamantic(?) but can't figure out which ones to test.  Don't need to get fried or burn something else out.:shock:

 

BTW, took this long to try to fix as we used solar power (line dried) but getting to cold out in NE Ohio now.

Does it make any noise when you push the Start Button (Relay click) ?

Does the Drum Light work (if equipped) ?

Does the Timer Motor run (in the Timed Dry Mode) ?

Do you have a meter ?

Did you check this Thermal Fuse ?

Yes to the first question

Yes to the second

No to the third, but can here some sound from timer.

Yes, I have a digital meter

No only checked the thermal fuse but jumpered it also as that is what we thought it was.  We turned on my meter displays 1 and when I put it on the fuse it shows between 0.2 and 0.3

Check the voltage at the Motor:

Blue wire to White Wire

There should be 120v AC when the Start Button is held in.

Have power on both sides of the fuse.  On the motor I show power from the Blue wire and one of the Red wires.  There are two red wires on the harness.

If there's power on the White wire to ground, then either the Timer contacts are bad or the Door Switch...

and if you can hear the Relay click when you push the Start Button, then the Door Switch is good.


Try it with the Wrinkle Guard Switch in both positions.
