Can't seem to get the dryer out of the cooling mode. I've cleared the vent lines from the back off the dryer all the way outside.

 

Any thoughts?

If the dryer heats during a cycle---but the COOLING light flashes on the Control Panel---normal.


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"

Ah, but that's the rub, it's not heating.

1) Verify 220 volts at the receptacle.

 

2) Inspect the plug terminal connections (back of dryer) for loose/burnt wires.

 

3) Test/check the THERMAL LIMITER on the side of the Heater Housing (continuity test with a meter).

     If the vent system (in the home) was restrictive/blocked---this would be the cause of a failed THERMAL LIMITER.
