Admiral Dryer Will Not Start
« on: May 26, 2012, 09:11:29 PM »

Hello, I am working on an Admiral Electric Dryer - Model # AED4475TQ1 - I am stumped as I have checked the following. I ohmed all the following and they are OK and I checked power to the block , its OK - Not sure how to check the timer or the motor. Could someone please explain how to check these two things as I am guessing that it must be one of those two things OR am I missing another possibility? Happy Memorial weekend to ALL!!!!!!!

Thanks AJ for the quick response. I will try the suggested tests and let you know how it goes. Also I need to know if when I check the motor for power, what if I do NOT get the 120vac - does that mean the motor is bad or do I have another problem? Thanks Again for the HELP!!!!!!
