Admiral Dryer AED4475TQ1 stopped running PLEASE HELP!!
« on: April 21, 2012, 05:35:05 PM »
anyway here we go i have power to both legs of the dryer. I also tested thermal fuse, door switch, start switch, , high limit t stat, cycling t stat, and finally the dryer element. unless there is another component hidden somewhere i believe the only thing left is the timer and motor. Now is there any way to test these two items because the timer costs 100 and the motor costs another 100 with the shipping and i really dont have the money to waste on guesses. Once again thank you for all the help and standing by with anybody's input.

Set the timer for Timed Dry. Check the timer for continuity between the black wire and light blue wire.  No continuity means bad timer.  Check for power at the motor.  You should have 120vac between 4M and 6M.  With the start button pressed you should have 120vac between 4M and 5M.

I've seen a few intermittent thermal fuses.  Check for a 120vac voltage drop between the thermal fuse terminals with the start button pressed.

Sounds right and it's about the only part you have not replaced.

Your model uses Timer Part # W10185972

Take the timer apart and look for a burr. Most times the heater contacts fry but the motor contacts are not so severe. To remove the cover plate you must first remove the small shank ring from around the plate. If you fail to do so you may not be able to get her back together if you manage to file down the burr.

I do not get 120vac between 4m and 5m with the button pressed, what does this mean?
