think that has anything to do with it-meaning the vent hose has changed position.




Quite possibly, try it for a bit with vent disconnected and see what happens

we're going to try that - I am able to override the "sensor" function of the dryer and use a time period for drying- the heater kicks on for that. It would be nice to have this sucker workin right, though. Thanks for your post!

no dice- still lights up- we took the dryer apart, cleaned the temp sensors, ran the diagnostic test which was bizzare as the readings didn't match the service manual readings. (gonna try that again). I can run the dryer on timed drying and get results, but not from sensor drying.
any other thoughts?
thanks!

If the dryer vent from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood is absolutely/positively clean/clear without a doubt...

I would test the THERMISTOR ohms (on the blower housing).

I've never had one fail---yet.

If the THERMISTOR is within "spec"---replace the MAIN BOARD.

How long does it take the dryer to *dry* laundry in Timed Dry Mode?
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Thanks for the post- will check!

<<<takes about 120 min>>>

************

That is an indication of a partially restricted/block exhaust vent.

If the venting is in the wall/ceiling of the home---having a professional vent cleaning company clean/clear it--is recommended.

However---if you have an electric lawn/leaf blower---you can try *blasting* air through the vent first.

sorry to raise this thread from the dead, but still battling this beast. We replaced the thermistor...still not working right, constantly on the "Cooling" stage, whether I use a program to dry, or force it with timed drying. the blower thing wasn't successful either. we did replace the silver accordion vent and cleaned the crap out of everything "dryer". No dice.
Any thoughts? thanks for your help!

This topic has gotten so long in the tooth that it would be helpful if, at this time, you posted a summary list of all the actions you've taken to try and solve this problem since starting this topic.

Hello again. I will try to summarize what we have done for the dryer- but we have a new problem.

 

I can power it on, but I cannot choose a dryer option. The lights flicker and it does not run. Like it cant choose a mode. I cant make it run!

Electronics? Anyway to override it? Probably need a new control panel?

We also have a surge of field mice moving in!!!

 

 

As far as what I have done with the dryer- we have replaced the belt, replaced the thermistor, cleaned the filter, and exhaust hose. We have ran it w/out the hose hooked up.

Still not working. The only way I can get it to work, is to use the timed dry 2 times to get anything dry. And not on high- or it will set on fire it gets sooo freaking hot!

 

But now- the control panel is wiggin out.

If you can help, please do- even to recommend replacing the control panel...( is this it??? Main circuit board==> http://www.repaircli...Number=DLE2514W   )   (Maybe it will be the ultimate fix!)

thanks!

aj

Do all of the Control Panel LEDs illuminate?
