HOW THE COMPONENTS WORK

Clothes dryers remove moisture from clothes by pulling air, either warmed or room temperature, through the clothes while they are being tumbled by a turning drum. The moisture from the clothes is exhausted through the dryer vent system to the outside of the house.

The basic components are:

Drum

Gas

Drive motor and blower:

Heat Source

Electric

13

Control thermistor:

Once inside the dryer cavity, the air is drawn between the rear wall of the dryer and the plenum. The holes in the plenum allow the air to be drawn across the heating element. In any cycle, other than No Heat, the heating element heats the air as it passes through.

Electronic control board:

Airflow

Since the moisture in the clothes is removed by air moving through the drum, it is important to understand the complete air flow system.

The air then is drawn into the drum through the holes in the rear of the drum.

Airflow electric dryers:

Room air enters the dryer through a louvered panel in the rear right-hand corner of the dryer.

14

The air passes through the drum, picking up moisture and is drawn through the lint filter into the ductwork at the front of the dryer.

Airflow gas dryers:

The airflow in gas dryers is similar to electric dryers except for the heat source and the rear of the drum. The air enters the cavity through the louvered opening in the right rear corner of the dryer. The air is then pulled across the gas burner through the burner chamber and ducted to the rear of the drum.

The air enters the fan housing and is pushed out the exhaust vent to the outside of the house.

The drum is the same as in the electric dryer, except it does not have a heat baffle on it.

15

Airflow problems:

Airflow problems are usually caused by restrictions, leaks or short unrestricted vents resulting in longer drying times, hotter dryer surfaces and, in extreme cases, the thermal limiter may open on electric dryers.

Restrictions: Electrical Operation (Electric Dryer Models)

Restrictions can occur any place in the airflow system, but the most common are:

Note: Always refer to the wiring diagram or schematic with the product.

1. Installing the dryer in a small inclosed area, such as a closet without a louvered door that reduces the intake air.

2. Fan problems caused by either a slow running motor, a broken or deformed fan blade or a deformed fan housing.

3. A lint restriction in the lint screen area. Operator may not be cleaning the lint screen before using.

4. A restriction in the exhaust system in the house caused by the design of the vent, such as, the diameter of the vent pipe being too small, too long, too many right angles, or a collapsed or lint restricted vent pipe.

Note:

Problems caused by the vent pipe in the house are not covered under the product warranty.

Air leaks:

Two types of air leaks may occur:

1. Air being drawn in around the door opening, between the drum and the front panel, or around the foam seal between the front duct and the blower housing, replaces some of the air being drawn through the drum and lowers the efficiency of the dryer.

When the dryer is connected to electrical power, line 1 is connected to one side of the thermal limiter and the

COM terminal of the heater relay RL 2 that is mounted on the electronic control board. Power is applied to the control board through thermal limiter to pin 1 of the eight pin plug. The electronic control board controls the operating temperature of the dryer and length of the cycle by either sensing the amount of moisture in the clothes or cycles for a fixed amount of time when time dry is used.

Note:

An air leak that occurs around the door opening or between the drum and the front panel usually will cause lint to build up on the inner panel of the door.

2. Air being pushed out around the blower housing or vent pipe inside the dryer, allows some of the moisture that has been removed from the clothes to be recirculated.

Note: For information on programming the electronic control and the cycles, refer to section A.

Electronic Control Board Circuits:

Short unrestricted vents:

The venting system in the dryer is designed to operate under some back pressure. This back pressure is needed to slow the airflow and allow the air to be heated before it passes through the clothes.

Note: With short direct vent runs, such as you have when the dryer is installed against an outside wall, use a 2 1/2” vent cap rather than a 4” vent cap.

Line 1 is applied to the control board at pin 1 of the eight pin plug and neutral on pin 2 of the eight pin plug.

The control board receives inputs from the selector switch, temp switch and push buttons which program the control, the contact sensors that sense the amount of moisture in the clothes, and the control thermistor, which senses the temperature in the dryer. The control board uses these inputs to control the drive motor circuit by opening and closing the contacts of relay RL 1 and the heater circuit by opening and closing the contacts of relay RL 2.

16

Drive Motor Circuit:

When power is connected to the dryer, line 1 is applied through the thermal limiter (a non-resettable fuse mounted on the rear wall of the dryer) to the COM terminal of the door switch.

The drive motor preforms two tasks in the dryer. A pulley attached to one end of the motor shaft uses a belt to drive the dryer drum. The blower wheel is attached to the other end of the motor shaft to pull the air through the clothes and force it out the exhaust vent.

Temperature Sensing Circuit:

The temperature in the dryer is controlled by the control thermistor and the electronic control board. The control thermistor, mounted in the blower fan housing, is a negative coefficient thermistor that decreases in resistance as the temperature increases.

When the door is closed the COM terminal is connected to terminal NO of the door switch. From terminal NO power is applied to terminal J4-2 of the motor relay RL

1 on the control board. When the control board closes relay RL 1 power is applied through terminal J4-1 to terminal M4 of the drive motor.

The electronic control board reads the resistance of the thermistor and converts it to temperature. It compares the reading from the thermistor to the temperature setting for the cycle.

Terminal M4 is connected inside the motor to one side of the thermal overload. (The thermal overload protects the motor from being damaged by overheating.) The other side of the thermal overload is connected to one end of both the run winding and the start winding of the drive motor. When the motor is not turning, the other end of the start winding is connected internally to terminal M5 of the motor through the NC contact of the motor centrifugal switch. The other end of the run winding is also connected internally to terminal M5, which is connected to neutral.

The Heating Circuit:

The electronic control board applies power to the heating circuit through the contacts of heater relay RL

2. When the electronic control senses the temperature in the drum is below the programmed temperature, it closes the contact of RL 2. This applies line 1 power to the high limit thermostat mounted on the heating element assembly.

When the motor is not turning, the start winding and the run winding are connected in parallel. When the contacts of relay RL 1 are closed, with the dryer door closed, line 1 and neutral voltage is applied across both the start and run windings of the drive motor. With power applied to both the start and run windings, the motor starts to turn.

When the speed of the motor reaches about 80% of it’s normal run speed, the contacts of the centrifugal switch remove power from the start winding thus removing the start winding from the circuit.

17

The high limit thermostat is a safety device that prevents the dryer from overheating if the contacts of the RL 2 fail closed. The contacts of the high limit thermostat, normally closed, are set to open at a temperature above the preset temperature specifications of the electronic control board. From the output terminal of the high limit thermostat, line 1 is connected to one side of the element and to pin 3 of the eight pin plug. The other side of the heating element is connected to line 2 through the contacts of the second centrifugal switch in the drive motor. This switch prevents power from being applied to the element if the motor is not running.

The connection to pin 3 allows the control to monitor the contacts of the high limit thermostat and show an error code if the contacts open above a preset number of times in a cycle.

Electrical Operation (Gas Dryer Models)

Note: Always refer to the wiring diagram or schematic with the product.

Sample wiring diagram.

Drying Time:

The amount of drying time is determined in one of two ways. A fixed amount of drying time is determined by turning the SELECTOR knob to one of the fixed drying times. The AUTO DRY cycles a variable amount of time determined by the size of the load, the amount of moisture in the clothes, and the dryness setting selected.

In the AUTO DRY cycles, the electronic control reads the capacitance between the two sensor bars located in the vent cover.

When the dryer is connected to electrical power, line 1 is connected to pin (1) of the eight pin plug of the control board, the terminal marked COM on the door switch and the COM terminal of the heater relay that is mounted on the electronic control board. Pin 1 of the eight pin plug provides power to the electronic control board. The electronic control board controls the operating temperature of the dryer and length of the cycle by either sensing the amount of moisture in the clothes or cycles for a fixed amount of time when time dry is used.

Electronic Control Board Circuits:

When wet clothes are placed in the dryer, the clothes touch the sensor bars and the moisture lowers the capacitance between the bars. As the dryer runs, moisture is removed from the clothes and the capacitance between the bars increases.

When the increase in capacitance satisfies the electronic control, the cycle status changes from “Auto

Dry” to “Cool Down” and the load is tumbled without heat.

At the end of cycle, the electronic control will turn the dryer off and the end-of-cycle signal sounds.

Line 1 is applied to the control board at pin 1 of the eight pin plug and neutral is connected on pin 2 of the six pin plug. The control board receives inputs from the membrane switches, which program the control, the contact sensors that sense the amount of moisture in the clothes and the control thermistor which senses the temperature in the dryer. The control board uses these inputs to control the drive motor circuit by opening and closing the contacts of relay RL 1 and the heater circuit by opening and closing the contacts of relay RL

2.

Drive Motor Circuit:

When power is connected to the dryer, line 1 is applied to the COM terminal of the door switch. When the door is closed the COM terminal is connected to terminal NO of the door switch. From terminal NO, power is applied to terminal J4-2 of the control board and to the motor

18

relay RL 1 on the control board. When the control board closes relay RL 1, power is applied through terminal J4-

1 to terminal M4 of the drive motor.

The electronic control board reads the resistance of the thermistor and converts it into temperature. The electronic control compares the reading from the thermistor to the temperature setting for the cycle and cycles the heating circuit accordingly.

Terminal M4 is connected inside the motor to one side of the thermal overload. (The thermal overload protects the motor from being damaged by overheating.) The other side of the thermal overload is connected to one end of both the run winding and the start winding of the drive motor. When the motor is not turning, the other end of the start winding is connected internally to terminal M5 of the motor through the NC contact of the motor centrifugal switch. The other end of the run winding is also connected internally to terminal M5 which is connected to neutral.

When the motor is not turning, the start winding and the run winding are connected in parallel. When the contacts of relay RL 1 are closed, with the dryer door closed, line 1 and neutral voltage are applied across both the start and run windings of the drive motor. With power applied to both the start and run windings, the motor starts to turn.

The Heating Circuit:

The electronic control board applies power to the heating circuit through the contacts of relay RL 2. When the electronic control senses that the temperature in the drum is below the programmed temperature, it closes the contact of heater relay RL 2 applying line 1 to the high limit thermostat. The high limit thermostat is a safety device that prevents the dryer from overheating if the contacts of the relay RL 2 fail closed.

The contacts of the high limit thermostat are normally closed and are set to open at a temperature above the preset temperature specifications of the electronic control board. From the output terminal of the high limit thermostat, line 1 is connected to pin 3 of the eight pin plug, one side of the holding coil of the gas valve, the secondary coil of the gas valve, and the sensor that is mounted on the burner chamber.

When the speed of the motor reaches about 80% of it’s normal run speed, the contacts of the centrifugal switch remove power from the start winding, thus removing the start winding from the circuit.

The connection to pin 3 allows the control to monitor the contacts of the high limit thermostat and show an error code contacts open above a preset number of times in a cycle.

The drive motor preforms two tasks in the dryer. A pulley attached to one end of the motor shaft uses a belt to drive the dryer drum. The blower wheel is attached to the other end of the motor shaft to pull the air through the clothes and force it out the exhaust vent.

The holding coil, secondary coil, booster coil, sensor, and igniter circuits interact with one another to assure safe operation of the dryer gas burner.

Temperature Sensing Circuit:

The temperature in the dryer is controlled by the control thermistor and the electronic control board. The control thermistor, mounted in the blower fan housing, is a negative coefficient thermistor that decreases in resistance as the temperature increases.

Booster

Holding

Secondary

19

The gas valve has two chambers in series, both must be opened before gas will flow into the burner.

The solenoid that controls the gas flow through the first chamber has two coils, the booster coil and the holding coil. The solenoid that controls the second chamber has one coil, the secondary coil.

N

Since it takes less magnetic force to hold a solenoid open than it does to open it, the first solenoid remains open when the current through the booster coil is reduced. The reduction of current flow through the igniter reduces heat from the igniter but the sensor contacts are held open by the heat of the burner flame.

Drying Time:

L1

The other side of the holding coil, booster coil and igniter are connected to neutral through the second centrifugal switch in the motor (closed when the motor is running).

When power is applied across these circuits, current flows through the holding coil but the holding coil does not have enough magnetic force to open the solenoid by itself. At the same time, current flows through the sensor contacts providing power to the booster coil and the igniter. When current flows through both the holding and booster coils, the first chamber opens. The contacts of the sensor are in parallel with the secondary coil. As long as the contacts of the sensor remain closed, current flow bypasses the secondary coil, and gas is prevented from flowing through the second chamber of the valve to the burner.

The amount of drying time is determined in one of two ways: (1) A fixed amount of drying time may be obained by turning the SELECTOR knob to one of the fixed drying times. (2) The AUTO DRY cycles the variable amount of time determined by the size of the load, the amount of moisture in the clothes and the dryness setting selected.

In the AUTO DRY cycles, the electronic control reads the capacitance between the two sensor bars located in the vent cover.

Sensor

Igniter

It is necessary to raise the temperature above 1100°F to ignite gas.

As current flows through the igniter, the temperature of igniter raises from room temperature to approximately 1800

°

F within 30 seconds. The contacts of the sensor are heat sensitive and set to open above the ignition temperature of gas. When the sensor contacts open, current flows through the secondary coil, opening the second chamber, allowing gas to flow to the burner, which is ignited by the heat of the igniter. When the contacts of the sensor are open, the parallel circuit formed by the igniter and the booster coil are in series with the secondary coil which lowers the current flow through the igniter and booster coil.

When wet clothes are placed in the dryer, the clothes touch the sensor bars and the moisture lowers the capacitance between the bars. As the dryer runs, moisture is removed from the clothes, the capacitance between the bars increases. When the increase in capacitance satisfies the electronic control, the cycle status will change from “Auto Dry” to “Cool Down” and the load is tumbled without heat. At the end of cycle, the electronic control will turn the dryer off and the end of cycle signal will sound.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Service Error Codes

The electronic controls of the dryer have self diagnostics codes built in that cover most product failures.

When a failure occurs, the dryer stops or pauses.

The control will beep and flash the STATUS lights to tell the customer that a failure has occurred. To stop the flashing and beeping, touch the Pause

Cancel button. The error code remains stored in the control.

To view the error codes:

1. Rotate the cycle select knob to the 3 o’clock position.

The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Extra

Care and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code after the E, and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit after the E. The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: the four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the

START indicator light will flash four times indicating the

4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light will start flashing at the same time. The control will then pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart on the next page.

The error codes remain in memory until cleared from the control.

2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for (6) seconds.

To move to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To clear code, press the Select button.

3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for

(4) seconds.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the

Select and Pause Cancel buttons for (6) seconds.

4. Rotate the cycle select knob to the 2 o’clock position.

Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine.

A = 10

B = 11

C = 12

D = 13

E = 14

F = 15

Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. If this code would appear on a washer, the four indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.
