Admiral Dryer
« on: June 12, 2011, 12:43:35 AM »
Hi, where I am living there is an Admiral Electric Dryer that runs but doesn't dry the clothes, even if it runs for 2 hours - still very damp. Also, there is a standard 120 vold 3 prong plug on this unit as well, not the 3 pronged 240 volt plug - would that make a difference? Also, the dryer vent and wall were 98% blocked when I moved in - I have since cleaned it out. What should I check for while trying to get this dryer to work properly. Thanks - Steve

Model AED4475TQ0

We need a model number.
From your description it seems you have a gas dryer.

This dryer needs 240VAC to run correctly.

If you want it to heat you'll need 220 VAC. If it had a regular 110 VAC cord connected to it, someone might have set it up to work like air fluff, no heat.

That dryer uses a 240 volt heating element. 120volts will run the motor but the dryer will never get hot enough to properly dry the clothes. You need a 240 volt power supply and either a 3 or 4 wire power cord as pictured below:

Hi, I have since replaced the old 110V 3 pronged plug to a new 240V 3 pronged plug and ran my first load into the dryer - I ran it for 2 different cycles and over 1 1/2 hours and the clothes are still damp as to when I first put them into the dryer. What do I check for next to get this dryer working. Thanks. Steve

If all the components check good then you might have a bad timer.
