In Topic: Whirlpool Cabrio Model WED6400SW1 Drum Not Revolving

I* believe the dryer venting is my ROOT CAUSE and have been stuck as to what will fix it long term.

I do not understand why a builder would not mention that placing a utility room (with washer and dryer on an inside wall) would not 1) cause dyer inefficiencies and 2) make require (which will be needed) techs to perform contortions that would be worthy of Cirque du Soleil. (another source of income  :dancin: )

 

So will order a duct cleaning brush, but do need to revise my outlet.  Any recoomendatrions on these auxillery blowers that will aid the dryer in long duct runs?

UPDATE #4:

Thank you JohnTech and Electro_Doc for the insights.

 

Reviewed tech manual.  Purchased a thermal fuse locally, so the Diagnostic Test Mode (D.T.M.) could be used to further problem-solve root cause, since there was a test that checked for the centrifugal switch.  Or does Murphy's Law about tests apply to the results?  :wallbash:

 

The stored codes were F-30 and F-31.

 

Dryer Control entered and passed all test modes.

Front Panel, moisture sensor, door switch, air inlet flow, Line voltage, motor, heater, console ID, and manual load test.

 

If the motor centrifugal switch is failed, I expect the startup windings would overheat and the fuse would open.  Other than replacing the fuse, I have not identified a root cause.

 

We have a real time test today, going to dry a couple of loads.

 

We do have the problem where the dryer takes a long time, and usually multiple runs to dry the clothes.  prior to the fuse blowing, the dryer was in use for 2 - 3 hours steady....

Thank you Sir.  I will get the APP cross reference tool and do the XRF check.  My wife may be anxious for the dryer to be repaired, but I want to do my repairs, if possible,

I found a manual for the WED6400SB1.  Will that manual and parts list be valid for my dryer?

Before going further with the manual search, will the WED6400SB1 also work for my WED6400SW1?

 

I found the cabrio manuals for the -SB1.  I did a search yesterday, but did not get a hit.  should have watched the Masters' video first.

 

If it will,  then I have the tech sheet and parts list I need.
