Possible causes depend on the dryer model and type. Electric dryers work diffeently from gas dryer.
\015\012Both electric and gas dryers usually have a thermal fuse located at the back of the appliance. Check if thermal fuse/switch is blown or tripped , and eventually replace it.
\015\012If the fuse is ok, and appliance is running but not drying, then next part to test will be the thermostat.
\015\012A dryer thermostat can be tested using a multimeter , set to read impedance at RX1. If the thermostat is good, it must have low Ohms at room temp, and return no continuity (infinite ohms) at temp. limit.
\015\012At this points things are different depending if dryer is gas or electrical.
\015\012On a gas dryer test valve , fan and ignitor.
\015\012On electric test the heating element and fan.
\015\012On both gas and electric, last part to be tested is the timer control board. If all other parts are fine, go for the timer board.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite purchased 1/2003 106.53606202, It does not cool.. I put it into the service diagnostic Mode. Step 1 the the FC said 0, RC said 1, water filter status indicator said 1.

Step 3 the fan motor went on, FC said 0, RC said 3, no other numbers to the right. step 4, FC 0, RC 4, no other numbers to the right, I did not hear the compressor come on. Step 5, FC 0, RC 5, no other numbers to the right . I heard
Kenmore refrigerator seemingly runs all the time. Defrost cycle must be working, because I find no frost on the evaporator. On a setting of 3, the recommended setting, the refrigerator is 40 degrees, the freezer 0 degrees. It seems that by turning the thermostat down, to, say, 2, or even 1, the compressor should shut off. Yet it doesn't. It will only shut off if I turn the knob to "off." So, the thermostat would appear to be defective, right?
Yes you are right the thermostat is not responding to switch off the compressor at the desired temperature setting. It stay "always on" position. Replace the thermostat to rectify this problem....................sodeepPS: low refrigerant gas co ...

Thermostat control Dear Experts, I have this Whirlpool side by side refrigerator model EP20PKXWN00. This has a thermostat controller - control knobs for the freezer (A B and C) and refrigerator (1 2 3 4 5). I had turned the freezer to B and the ref between 3 and 4. I was surprised that it defrost by itself after running the unit for 5 hours and the water lid pan almost filled up with water. I had it drained and adjusted the control to lower. Freezer to A and Ref to 2. Again, it auto defrost afte
Your system most likely has an automatic defrost system. The auto defrost system should actuate every 8 or 12 hours. Under normal conditions the water from the drain pan will evaporate between defrost periods. The defrost is controlled by a timer and ...

GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:
1. Defrost Control
2. Drain Trough Heater
3. Defrost Heater
4. Defrost Thermostat
It seems as if the Defrost Heater is working fine, otherwise the icicles would not be running down sides of freezer and e
I have a GE side by side stainless steel refrigerator. Model GSL22JFPD BS. About a week ago the refrigerator stopped dispensing water. I did the following so far:
1. Replaced water filter - didn't help
2. Unplugged refrigerator and plugged back in - didn't help.
3. Checked that the water shutoff valve is in the proper position.
I can tell water is getting to the refrigerator because when I changed the water filter you can hear the water filling up in the filter.

I was reading a question/solution about the water filtration not working. 3 areas of concern were listed: 1. old/clogged filter 2. Inlet valve problem/corrosion 3. Frozen water lines/ice blockage.
I replaced the filter. The refrigerator is a year old, so I am assuming it isn't the inlet valve. So, if the water lines has ice blockage, how do I fix it?
The water line referred to would be the fill hose inside the freezer.Remove the icemaker and look inside the water fill tube. If you see ice,you will need to unplug the refrigerator,then use a hair dryer to thaw the incoming water tube.On ...
Kenmore refrigerator Ice maker overfills - intermittently. (Side-by-side Model KM23CFSXS,WOW). 3 Yrs. old; Problem began after I replaced water filter, but I don't see how that could be the problem. 2 or 3 'batches' of ice O.K. then ice trays will attempt to fill twice causing an overflow. Once, I heard the ice falling into collection bin and immediately went to take a look. "Pusher' fingers were in 2nd rotation (assuming it takes a complete 1st rotation to empty ice tray and hear the ice fall)
Hi\015\012\015\012\015\012Please make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner will move and allows the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Also check the fill valve, it might be staying on and over filling the icemaker. Th ...

Our Kenmore 596.9550890 SxS refrigerator has three issues: 1) The water is not coming out of the water dispenser; 2) There is water in the drip pan that sometimes overflows; and 3) The fan (accessed behind the fridge) will not start up without manual intervention. Maybe the problems are related?
