Basic Information
Safe Servicing Practices For All Appliances
Avoid personal injury and/or property damage by observing important Safe Servicing Practices.
Following are some limited examples of safe practices:
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to complete the repair in a safe and
satisfactory manner.
2. Always use the correct Replacement Parts as indicated in the parts documentation. Substitutions may defeat
compliance with Safety Standards Set For Home Appliances. Do not exceed maximum recommended wattage
on light bulb replacements. Doing so could blow fuses and/or damage transformers.
3. Before servicing or moving an appliance:
• Remove power cord from the electrical outlet, trip circuit breaker to the OFF position, or remove fuse.
• Turn off water supply if applicable.
4. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
5. Use ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE. Substitutions may defeat
compliance with Safety Standards Set For Home Appliances.
6. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN, or GREEN with YELLOW
STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current carrying conductors. It is EXTREMELY important that
the service technician reestablish all safety grounds prior to completion of service. Failure to do so will create
a hazard.
7. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure.
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp edges, high-temperature components,
and moving parts.
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc. are adequately spaced away from all metal
parts and panels.
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely connected.
• All panels are properly and securely reassembled.
• Gas and water supplies are turned ON if shut off prior to service.

Basic Information
Before the dryer is removed from service or discarded,
remove the dryer door to prevent accidental
entrapment.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in
serious personal injuries.
Important Safety Instructions
Safety Precautions
Do not attempt to install, operate or service the unit until
you have read the safety precautions in this manual.
Safety items throughout this manual are labeled with a
Danger, Warning, or Caution based on the risk type.
Prevent Fire
Definitions
This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert
you to potential personal injury hazards. Obey all
safety messages that follow this symbol to avoid possible
injury or death.
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, will result in death
or serious injury.
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, could result in
death or serious injury.
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor
or moderate injury.
Indicates installation, operation, or maintenance
information which is important but not hazard
related.
Child Safety
Do not allow children to play on or in the dryer.Close
supervision of children is necessary when the dryer
is used near children. As children grow, teach them the
proper, safe use of all appliances.
Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing
materials after the dryer is unpacked.
Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with
rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become
airtight chambers.
Keep laundry products out of children’s reach. To prevent
personal injury, observe all warnings on product
labels.
Do not dry items that have been previously cleaned in,
soaked in, or spotted with gasoline, cleaning solvents,
kerosene, waxes, etc. Do not store these items on or near
the dryer. These substances give off vapors that could
ignite or explode.
Do not place items exposed to cooking oils in your dryer.
Items contaminated with cooking oils may contribute to a
chemical reaction that could cause a load to catch fire.
To prevent fire, do not use heat to dry items containing
plastic, foam rubber or similarly textured rubberlike
materials, or items containing feathers or down. Use Air
Fluff (No Heat) only.
Clean the lint screen before or after each load. The
interior of the dryer, lint screen housing and exhaust
duct should be cleaned approximately every 18 months
by qualified service personnel. An excessive amount of
lint buildup in these areas could result in inefficient drying
and possible fire.
Do not operate the dryer if the lint screen is blocked,
damaged or missing. Fire hazard, overheating and
damage to fabrics can occur. If your dryer has a drying
rack, always replace the lint screen when finished using
the drying rack.
Keep area around exhaust opening and surrounding
areas free from the accumulation of lint, dust and dirt.
Do not obstruct the flow of ventilating air. Do not stack or
place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of
the dryer.
Do not spray any type of aerosol into, on or near dryer at
any time.
Do not use fabric softeners or products to eliminate static
unless recommended by the manufacturer of the fabric
softener or product.
Failure to comply with these warnings could result in fire,
explosion, serious bodily injury and/or damage
to the rubber or plastic parts of the dryer.

Installation Information
Exhaust System Requirements
Use only 4 inch (10.2 cm) diameter (minimum) rigid
or flexible metal duct and approved vent hood which has
a swing-out damper(s) that open when the dryer is in
operation. When the dryer stops, the dampers automatically close to prevent drafts and the entrance of insects
and rodents. To avoid restricting the outlet, maintain a
minimum of 12 inches (30.5 cm) clearance between the
vent hood and the ground or any other obstruction.
If the present system is made up of plastic duct or metal
foil duct, replace it with a rigid or semi-rigid metal duct.
In Canada and the United States if metal (foil type) duct
is installed, it must be of a specific type identified by the
appliance manufacturer as suitable for use with clothes
dryers and in the United States must also comply with
the Outline for Clothes Dryer Transition Duct, UL
standard 2158A. Also, ensure the present duct is free of
any lint prior to installing dryer duct.
The dryer must be connected to an exhaust outdoors.
Regularly inspect the outdoor exhaust opening and
remove any accumulation of lint around the outdoor
exhaust opening and in the surrounding area. (See
Figure 2-2 & 2-3)

Installation Information
Install Male Fittings in Correct Direction:
Exhaust Direction
In installations where the exhaust system is not
described in the charts, the following method must be
used to determine if the exhaust system is acceptable:
(See Figure 2-4)
Directional exhausting can be accomplished by
installing a quick-turn 90° dryer vent elbow directly
to exhaust outlet of dryer. Dryer vent elbows are
available through your local parts distributor or
hardware store. (See Figure 2-5)
Figure 2-4.
Exhaust System Requirements
1. Connect an inclined or digital manometer between
the dryer and the point the exhaust connects to the
dryer.
2. Set the dryer timer and temperature to air fluff
(cool down) and start the dryer.
3. Read the measurement on the manometer.
4. The system back pressure MUST NOT be higher
than 1.0 inch of water column. If the system back
pressure is less than 1.0 inch of water column, the
system is acceptable. If the manometer reading is
higher than 1.0 inch of water column, the system is
too restrictive and the installation is unacceptable.
Figure 2-5.
]
Although vertical orientation of the exhaust system
is acceptable, certain extenuating circumstances
could affect the performance of the dryer:
1. Only the rigid metal duct work should be used.
2. Venting vertically through a roof may expose the
exhaust system to down drafts causing an increase
in vent restriction.
3. Running the exhaust system through an uninsulated
area may cause condensation and faster
accumulation of lint.
4. Compression or crimping of the exhaust system will
cause an increase in vent restriction.
5. The exhaust system should be inspected and
cleaned a minimum of every 18 months with normal
usage. The more the dryer is used, the more often
you should check the exhaust system and vent hood
for proper operation.
Manufactured or Mobile Home Installation
1. Installation MUST conform to current Manufactured
Home Construction & Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR,
Part 32-80 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile
Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD Part
280) or Standard CAN/CSAZ240 MH.
2. Dryer MUST be exhausted outside (outdoors, not
beneath the mobile home) using metal ducting that
will not support combustion. Metal ducting must be
4 inches (10.16 cm) in diameter with no obstructions.
Rigid metal duct is preferred.
3. If dryer is exhausted through the floor and area
beneath the mobile home is enclosed, the exhaust
system MUST terminate outside the enclosure with
the termination securely fastened to the mobile home
structure.
4. Refer to previous sections in this guide for other
important exhaust venting system requirements.
5. When installing a gas dryer into a mobile home, a
provision must be made for outside make up air.
This provision is to be not less than twice the area of
the dryer exhaust outlet.

Installation Cycle. If you wish to immediately run the
dryer through a drying cycle, press the cancel button
to put the unit to sleep and then rewake it immediately, to continue the normal operating mode.
The errors may result from the following
conditions:
• SERVICE CORD error (electric dryer)—The power
supply cord has been installed improperly or the house
wiring to the receptacle is incorrect.
• NO GAS error (gas dryer)—There is no connection
between the dryer and the gas line or the valve is closed.
• CALL SERVICE—Troubleshoot and repair as needed.
Repeat the INSTALL CYCLE when corrections are

Component Teardown
This section explains how to access and remove components from an Electrolux IQ-Touch™ and Wave-Touch™
Dryer, and has been arranged in such a way as to simulate which components would need to be removed first in
order to gain access to other components. When following a component removal procedure, it may be necessary to
reference another component removal procedure listed earlier in this section.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before continuing, please take note of the WARNINGS and CAUTIONS below.
BEFORE SERVICING OR MOVING AN APPLIANCE:
•
•
-
REMOVE THE POWER CORD FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET, TRIP THE CIRCUIT
BREAKER TO THE OFF POSITION, OR REMOVE THE FUSE.
TURN OFF THE GAS SUPPLY FOR GAS DRYERS.
IF IT IS NECESSARY TO REMOVE AN ELECTROLUX DRYER UNIT FROM ITS INSTALLATION, USE
PROPER LIFTING TECHNIQUES AS UNITS ARE HEAVY AND COULD FALL RESULTING IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. PULLING A UNIT FROM ITS INSTALLATION SHOULD ONLY BE
PERFORMED BY A TRAINED AUTHORIZED SERVICE TECHNICIAN OR INSTALLER.
-
TO AVOID ELECTRIC SHOCK, POWER TO A DRYER UNIT MUST BE DISCONNECTED
WHENEVER ACCESSING AND/OR REMOVING COMPONENTS POWERED BY ELECTRICITY OR
COMPONENTS NEAR OTHER ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS.
-
IF UNIT WAS USED PRIOR TO SERVICE, THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WILL BE HOT.
WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND THE APPROPRIATE SAFETY GEAR WHEN WORKING WITH
HEATING ASSEMBLIES.
-
AFTER SERVICE IS COMPLETED, BE SURE ALL SAFETY-GROUNDING CIRCUITS ARE COMPLETE,
ALL ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS ARE SECURE, AND ALL ACCESS PANELS ARE IN PLACE.
-
Metal edges may be sharp. Use caution and wear appropriate safety equipment when
servicing dryers to avoid personal injury.
- If working in the motor area, remember that the heater element and tubing may be hot if used prior to
service.

Electrical Tests For Electric and Gas Dryers
Continuity
When measured by an Ohm meter, there should be no more than .1 Ohms resistance between the
terminal block ground and any exposed metal dryer cabinet component including control shafts and switches when
probed through or in any unpainted area.
Check continuity between motor frame and motor support bracket using a continuity light. Test light must illuminate
when probing the motor frame with one end of the test light and the motor bracket with the other.
If dryer fails continuity with a low voltage tester, check continuity using 120 VAC.
Insulation Dielectric Strength
Disconnect ground link from the neutral of the terminal block on the dryer. With the dryer completely assembled and
with the door closed, apply 1200 VAC or more for one second to the terminal block
terminals or service cord.
Connect one probe to all three terminals and the other probe to the backsheet. There shall be no more than 5mA of
current during the one second test interval. During the 1 second test, no drop in voltage below 1200 VAC is permissible.
Motor Power
Audit - (power required after 20 seconds with no load, motor CW direction, and no heat) 200 to 280 watts.
Line Test - (power required after 1-5 seconds with no load, motor CW direction, and no heat) 210 to 290 watts.
Low Voltage Start
The dryer motor should start and operate at 100 volts (200 volts for 230 VAC, 50Hz dryers). The power will be set to
not dip below this voltage during any part of the cycle. Increase the voltage to allow for meter error and line fluctuations. Test the run with a 50 pound clothes load (25 pounds at 100% moisture) at “Maximum” heat setting.
Motor Protector Trip Time
When the motor is locked, the thermal protector must open to shut off motor within 3 to 10 seconds. This test also
applies to the 50/60 Hz Motor when test is conducted at 230VAC 60 Hz.
NOTE: Tests must be run with a cold (ambient) motor. When tested in the unit, a jumper harness will be needed
to bypass the software alarm for the motor not starting. Without the jumper, the software will stop the cycle within 3
seconds (before the thermal protector opens) if motor movement is not detected.
Tests must be run at 120VAC (line voltage not to sag below this value when the rotor is locked), unless specified
otherwise.
