Open Question

I had the controller board bracket lose, plugged in the dryer touched a button and then lights. The first I had seen since the dryer went down. I then pressed the cancel button and started putting the dryer back together. After reassembly of the controller card I then again pushed a dry cycle button and nothing once again.

SOURCE: GE dryer starts but..... stops

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

SOURCE: kenmore HE5 dryer won't start

Several different problems could prevent your dryer from running. Make sure that the door is firmly closed and hold down the start button for a couple of seconds to start the dryer. If you hear a click from the control board then the door switch and the control board are likely okay. You could have a blown thermal fuse or a broken belt in the dryer. To check these components,unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. With this panel removed, you can tell whether the drive belt is broken. If the drive belt is okay, I recommend checking the thermal fuse. This fuse is located on the blower housing as shown in the second image below. It will have light blue wires attached. To test the fuse, remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance, then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. You can verify that this is your failure by taping the contacts of the light blue wires together with electrical tape to "bypass" the thermal fuse. Reassemble the dryer and see if the motor runs with this fuse bypassed. If it does, then this verifies that the blown thermal fuse prevented the dryer from running and that this was the only failure. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer beyond this brief test with the thermal fuse bypassed. This component must be replaced. It is an important safety feature of the dryer.

You can order a new thermal fuse from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number is 3392519.

Dryer has power, control board lights up and beeps when touched, but dryer won't start

I would check the door switch. if switch is good, then control board might not be recognizing switch as being closed. Check for proper voltage at the plug. any volts under 208 is bad.

Why is my Maytag Epicz model #MGDZ600TW2 not starting and giving me an error code F01. What does it mean?

The F01 error code is typically a communication fault. You may have a defective main control board. Unplug the dryer or turn off the breaker to the dryer. Double check to make sure dryer has no power. Remove the screws holding the top on at the back of the dryer. Standing in front of the dryer push down and slide the top away from you then lift. With the top removed you will see a metal bracket on the left side housing a control board. Remove the control board from the bracket. You may want to take a picture to reference where the wires go. Remove the white cover of the control board then gently remove the control board from the white housing by pressing in the small tabs. If you see a black mark on the back side of the control board and the white housing replace that control board. According to your model number the main control board is part number W10111606.

Kenmore elite dryer front panel not on

I just went through this with my dryer. I started by replacing the controller board which was the less expensive part and after finding that not to be the problem I then replaced the Touchpad. Problem solved! I found a rebuilt controller board on amazon for half price which I left on the dryer even after finding it was not the problem then ordered the touchpad from a friend that has a parts store. I could only save $30 by purchasing this way but a penny saved is a penny earned. Anyway my dryer was doing exactly what yours is doing and had I to do it over, I would start with the touch pad from for $288 and change. Plus shipping of course unless you have a sears parts store near you. Go to download manuals at and enter you dryer model number. Mine was 110.8586.1400. I hope this helps.

Nothing works on control panel except control locked sensor light. The buttons were working fine then I went to add more drying time and the buttons do not light up or work.

From the details of your symptom you're indicating a possible intermittent loose connection between the user interface (touch panel) and the machine control board or the voltage supply to machine control board at P1 connector.

Disconnect the power cord from the power source.

  • Disconnect P3 and P4 connectors from the machine control board and then reconnect them.
  • Disconnect P1 connector and then reinstall the P1 connector and then recheck operation.

If the wires are good then you will need to replace the control board on your unit.

Start/pause button not working, is it the control panel or the control electronics board?

First unplug the Dryer and allow about 5 mins to pass, this will allow the board time to reset, plug Dryer back in, if problem is still present, its possible that the touch pad is defective on the dryer, if other functions work when touched, it is the touch pad, and not the Board

It starts working for a minute and it stop working

It is an indication of a shorted thermistor. Disconnect power to the dryer and check the resistance of the thermistor.

The thermistor (part #8577274) is located on the blower housing with red/white stripe and black wires and can be accessed by removing the lower front access panel. Remove the two hex-head screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet and pull the bottom out then down and move the panel away from the cabinet.

Disconnect one wire from the thermistor and use an ohmmeter, set to X1, to measure the resistance. Touch the ohmmeter test leads to the thermistor terminals and measure the resistance. The resistance reading at room temperature of a good thermistor is between 8.5 and 13.5 ohms; otherwise, replace the thermistor.

Remove the two screws mounting the thermistor to the blower housing then mount and secure the new thermistor in place. Connect the thermistor wires then slide the lower front access panel up back into position to the cabinet and secure its bottom with the two securing screws.

In case the measured thermistor resistance falls within the allowed range, measure the resistance between the disconnected thermistor wire and the other one. Replace the dryer control electronics (part #8546219).

Remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer then slide the panel rearward and lift it off.

Facing the front of the dryer, the dryer control board is located on the left mounted behind the bracket. Remove the three screws holding the bracket in place then rotate assembly up and set it on the side panel.

Disconnect the wiring harnesses from the control board one at a time then connect it to the new control board.

Remove the control board mounting screw near the transformer then press the side ends one at a time to release the mounting tabs and lift the end away from the bracket.

Secure the new control board to the bracket and reassemble the rest in reverse of the steps given above.

My whirlpool dryer model- ygew 9250 pwo will not power up when I control on button. If I push the power on button and the pause button at the same time some times it will start and run and sometimes I may...

When this problem occurs are the small lights on very dim? If so I would turn off the power and remove the top off the dryer. Then re-seat the 4 ribbon cables on the display board. Alot of people replace the front panel or control boards when the problem really is the ribbon cables. If the LED's are not lit dim then you may need to replace one of the two boards.

Control panel doesn't light up

HI, this issue concerns the touch pad(control board led). This will happen in certain models. it could be some minor corrosion within the wire contact clips that are not allowing the proper current to illuminate the led that is used to light the specific button or, it could be a minor circuit issue within the control board as well.

i recommend inspecting the control panels wire harness contact clips that are behind the actual control board. make sure they are not corroded or lose. if they are lose or corroded, i suggest replacing the entire wire harness. this could be the possible reason for some of the lights that are not illuminating during operations.

If the wires and contacts are in good condition and the harness is in good condition as well, this could be an internal control circuit board issue, concerning the LEd lights. they may have burned out due to the age or heavy usage.(heat related)..

Please rate and god bless:)
