I asked about this earlier but the people decided they didn't want to repair the washer but then the dryer broke as well.
WASHER: The girls said the clothes were too wet at the end of the cycle. I have the manual, and for the washer have followed the trouble shooting to the second to last step and it's either the motor or motherboard. However, how do I check the RPM's? The manual says the motor needs to tumble at 50 RPM's. Then if it DOES tumble at 50 RPM's (in all three phases, A,B, and C), it says check for causes outside the motor circuitry. I don't know what that would be, the flow chart ends there .
DRYER: Again, the girls say it tumbles but doesn't dry. I can't find a flow chart in the manual for the dryer like they have for the washer. On page 3-15 of the manual there is a small section: If Dryer will not heat (motor runs) check the following.......... which lists 7 items, but unlike I the washer section I don't see how to check them, this includes:
1. Open heating element
2. Hi Limit thermostat is open or trips too soon
3. Cycling thermostat trips too soo or is open
4. Temperature switch miswired or open (the unit is 10 years old, this one seems unlikely)
5. Timer Functional (they let it go for a long time the girl said, so this one also seems unlikely)
6. Drive motor centrifugal start switch not allowing voltage to gas valve or heating element.
GENERAL: I also don't see an easy way to disconnect the top (dryer) from the bottom (washer). As I stupidly brought this thing home from the house it was in, I have to takeit back, which includes one bitch of a staircase. Does this thing not simply break into two units? It sure didn't look like it from the manual..........
