3405281 Relay Price Check
« on: September 15, 2012, 12:57:41 PM »
3405281 relay for Whirlpool Even Heat dryers.  I just paid 32.00 wholesale. It has Potter Bromfield number T9AP1D52-48-03. I checked Mouser.com and they have the same relay for $4.28 plus $6.95 shipping, USPS priority mail, total $11.23.  I didn't order one this time because the customer didn't want to wait but will combine it on my next Mouser order to save shipping costs.

The dryer relay is powered by dc?

Yup, 12 volts DC to the relay coil, I believe.

48vdc.  It's easy to check. Turn dryer on.  Check for 48vdc to the coil, no voltage is bad control board.  If there is voltage to the coil, check for voltage across the relay. 240vac is a bad relay, 0vac means the problem is somewhere else in the heater circuit.

Better make sure it's not the control board.   Just replaced one of those last week,  amazing,  for a small board they are expensive.    First thing I check on those dryers is that coil.
