Angry Electric dryer running improperly
Model Number: AED4475   Brand: Admiral   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My electric dryer was purchased in 8/2010 and it currently is not operating properly. When it starts a cycle, it runs for a short time (10-15 mins) and then the top of the dryer is very hot, and it will stop and trip the circuit breaker in the panel box. The breaker is not hot to the touch, and if you reset it and start the dryer, then it will usually complete the drying process. Anytime I try to dry something like denim materials, it takes at least 2-3 cycles of drying for them to get completely dry.

Thank you for any suggestions you can make.

Here are the parts.
Replacement parts for AED4475 models | AppliancePartsPros.com

Check the heating coil.
Unplug the unit and both wires to the coil.
Check it with a meter, should be around 10 to 12 ohms.
Then check from each side of the coil to the case/frame, both should be infinite ohms (open). If not the coil may have sagged or broken and is touching the case. This can cause it to run on high and pull excessive current.

If you do not own a meter, I would suggest you purchase a one. You can get a decent digital multimeter for under $20.00. You do not need fancy though it is nice if the leads are a couple feet long.
If it saves ordering one unnecessary part it has paid for itself and you end up owning a useful tool.
Most places will not let you return electrical parts so if you order it, you own it.
A couple things to watch when measuring ohms and continuity
1. Always remove power from the machine otherwise you could blow your meter.
2. Always disconnect at least one side of any device you are checking. This eliminates the possibility of measuring an alternate/parallel circuit path.
3. When checking for closed contacts and continuity use the lowest scale (Usually 200 ohms). Then try higher scales. This scale is 0 to 200 ohms so if the device you are measuring is 300 ohms this scale would show an open circuit which it is not, you are just measuring outside the scale's dynamic range.
4. When you start always short the meter leads together. This will tell you that the meter is working and if there is any 0 offset.

There is a good STICKY at the start of this forum about it's use.
