Hi,

 

My son in Pennsylvania called and said they had a blackout yesterday. Today his wife went to use the

dryer and it wouldn't start up. The light is on in the tub, but no lights on the timer.

 

I'm hoping the thermal fuse by the heater will be the cause, but if not, I guess it's control board time.

 

Anyone seen this problem on this particular dryer and know anything else to check?

 

Thanks,

Bruce in L.A.

Does the dryer have correct voltage at the terminal strip? It sounds like L1 is dead.

OK. I'll have to get them to check voltage at the plug.

 

thanks

Yup, sounds like the control board got zapped.
