DIAGNOSTIC GUIDE
DIAGNOSTIC TEST
Before servicing, check the following:
This diagnostic test allows factory/service
personnel to test and verify all inputs to the
electronic control. The basic operation of this
test is to notify the operator with an audible
beep every time the status of an input to the
control changes state.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before
servicing.
Replace all parts and panels
before operating.
Failure to do so can result in
death or electrical shock.
■ Make sure there is power at the wall
outlet.
■ Has a household fuse blown or circuit
breaker tripped? Time delay fuse?
■ Is dryer vent properly installed and
clear of lint or obstructions?
■ All tests/checks should be made with
a VOM (volt-ohm-milliammeter) or
DVM (digital-voltmeter) having a
sensitivity of 20,000 ohms per volt DC
or greater.
■ Check all connections before
IMPORTANT
replacing components. Look for
broken or loose wires, failed terminals,
or wires not pressed into connectors
far enough.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
Sensitive Electronics
Do not open package until it is time to
install the electronic board.
■ A potential cause of a control not
functioning is corrosion on
connections. Observe connections
and check for continuity with an
ohmmeter.
ESD problems are present everywhere.
ESD may damage or weaken the
electronic board. The new board may
appear to work well after repair is
finished, but failure may occur at a later
date due to ESD stress.
■
■
■
■
Use an anti-static wrist strap. Connect
wrist strap to green ground connection
point or unpainted metal in the
appliance
-ORTouch your finger repeatedly to a green
ground connection point or unpainted
metal in the appliance.
Before removing the part from its
package, touch the anti-static bag to a
green ground connection point or
unpainted metal in the appliance.
Avoid touching electronic parts or
terminal contacts; handle electronic
board by edges only.
When repackaging failed electronic
board in anti-static bag, observe above
instructions.
■ Connectors: Look at top of connector.
Check for broken or loose wires.
Check for wires not pressed into
connector far enough to engage metal
barbs.
■ Resistance checks must be made with
dryer unplugged or power
disconnected.

Thermistor Test or Dryer Beeps
3 Times when Push to Start (PTS)
Pressed
An electronic temperature sensor called a
thermistor is used in this model in place of
an operating thermostat. The electronic
control monitors the exhaust temperature
using the thermistor, and cycles the heater
relay on and off to maintain the desired
temperature.
Procedure

and a clean lint screen.
■
➔ If the dryer appears to operate
correctly, proceed to step 3.
3. Remove exhaust vent and start the dryer.
➔ Turn Temperature switch to desired
temperature to be tested, and select
20 minutes of Timed Drying. Hold a
glass bulb thermometer capable of
reading from 90°F to 180°F (32°C to
82°C) in the center of the exhaust
outlet. Measure exhaust temperatures
with heater off and on.
The correct exhaust temperatures
are as follows:
1. Set the following configuration:
■
Door - must be closed
■
Timer dial - Timed Drying
■
Temperature switch - High
■
Wrinkle Shield switch - Off
■
End of Cycle Signal switch - Louder
2. Press the Push to Start switch.
➔ If you hear three short beeps and the
dryer shuts off after several seconds,
the thermistor or wire harness is either
shorted or open.
■
Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
■
Check wire connections at the
electronic control and thermistor.
