Serial # 11909744JV

 

This dryer is my son's. He's in Pennsylvania and I'm in Los Angeles, so trying to help him over the phone.

 

Two days ago they had an electrical surge hit the neighborhood and after that the dryer doesn't work right.

 

His wife starts it, as usual. It runs about 30 seconds and then shuts down.

 

It does the same thing everytime she tries to run it. 30 - 60 seconds, then turns off.

 

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

 

Bruce

sounds like you will need to replace the control board (again)

That link you included said those guys replaced everything, including the control board and it still didn't work, until they

put a damp cloth on the sensor. That doesn't make sense as one fellow mentioned.

 

Also, my daughter-in-law had the machine turn off with a full load of laundry that was still wet when it stopped.

 

Still, you feel it's the board??

My reading of the link was that the new control board fixed the problem.

 

With a power surge hitting a control board it could have shorted something out.

 

Have they looked at the board for any obvious signs of damage?

 

Purchase from a place where you can return parts if you need to.

 

www.appliancepartspros.com is a good place (at the moment the site is acting weird and it won't pull up)

Yes, I had them look at the board and it appeared fine. No caps blown or burn spots.

 

They replaced this board about a year ago when they had another power outage. That time the 220V circuit was damaged and fried the

plug and the board.
