In Topic: Whirlpool Gas DryerLGR7646EZ2 intermittent heat, long dry times

Replaced the blown thermal fuse and operating thermostat. She seems to be running right, again-So far. :lol: Only time and overloading will tell.


Fermented Master,

The only vent problems I have are when the mother-in-law decides to clean behind the dryer, and shimmies it out until the semi-rigid aluminum breaks or kinks. She hasn't done that since I replaced the ignitor, and cleaned out the cabinet last weekend. Where do you think I learned my knowledge of dryer venting from? Yup, that very same link you posted, many moons ago.

Perhaps the overheating conclusion was a bit of a leap, but something caused the thermal fuse to blow.

Reg.,

I searched here and everywhere and found the specs. for my ignitor's resistance. Sorry, should have mentioned previously. It had no continuity and did not register under any of the other ranges of resistance, either.

I don't know that it's not the coils. :whistling:

I don't believe they have every been replaced, and according to my serial number- MH2303686- it was built in 1998. So, I guess it could be them.

Thanks again,

Thanks guys. I was able to sight match a substitute evaporator fan motor at the local appliance parts store.

On a side note, while I was replacing the evap. fan motor, I pulled the ice dispenser out to clean it. I'm no germ-a-phobe,
but evidently it had never been cleaned and the stainless plate (I think it's SS) was rusty. I cleaned it up, put it back
together.

Two follow ups. One, why the hell is that plate rusted? bad water? not stainless? Two, now I get nothing when I set it to crushed ice, the auger won't turn
on the dispenser. What the hell did I miss?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

HELP. The part number for my evaporator fan motor is no longer made. Does anyone have the specs on the fan - shaft diameter and length, rotation direction? Or a substitute part number?
The OEM part # is 5304406647.


Thanks,

Matt

I have the new element on order, should be here tomorrow-ish.  I've never had any other problems replacing elements.  However, most of those were much older models. 

Why is the element live, even when there's not signal for heat?  To say that I was surprised by that, would be an understatement.  My shorts speak for themselves.  :yikes:

Unfortunately when it shorted, it burnt the terminal off one end of the element.  I have an element with only 1 terminal.
