elite gas dryer
« on: December 30, 2008, 12:43:26 AM »
i have this dryer,i want to test the dryer conditions,but i don't connect the gas yet, i just confirm that the igniter its in good conditions, and the motor run OK
but when i set the timer in More dry by time , and the temperature selector in some position ex hight temp, i start the cycle and the drum start to spin, but suddenly the motor stop and sound a ¨beep alarm¨ and the timer start to run faster to the Off position, is this action normal due that i didn't connect the gas yet?

thank you for your comments

Everything must be hooked up for this dryer to work. If it does not work after it is hooked up, then we know what to look at...


You can't run a car with no gasoline, right?

well, i just connect the gas, and turn on the dryer, i can see the fire , so the dryer work ok, but again only a few seconds after get the ignition, the dryer make a alrm sound and stop, and the timer continue running to the off position, i look at the front panel and there are a a PCBoard, so may be a electronic failure?

Any idea what should i check, now i now that the igniter, the coils, the motor, door SW work OK, but i don't know what its stop the functionability,

What is the history on this dryer?
Did you get it from someone who said "it works fine"?

Take your timer knob off the dryer. Look for the flat spot in the knob and the timer stem. Re-attached the dryer knob and try it.

Functionabiity?


When it shuts off, you claim it makes a beep. Is there a display code when it does this?

In the panel where you said you looked, did you find the tech sheet? It said if the moisture sensor was shorted, it would make it beep and shut down. That would be a good place to start.

Here's the fact sheet:
