Default Dryer stopped mid-load and will not restart
Model Number: DE650ADW2   Brand: White-Westinghouse   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My White-Westinghouse dryer, model DE650ADW2, for no apparent reason quit in mid-load after running fine for about 15mins. I found it some 30mins later. The clothes were still warm but not what I would call hot but that could just be that the cooled down somewhat before I discovered them.

Having browsed some other postings here and figuring it was as good a time as any to clean out the years of lint buildup, I opened her up and removed the drum to check on the heating coil. The coil is a single element about 24-30" long around the rear of the drum. It appears to be fully intact with no obvious signs of distress. It's not broken or burnout anywhere.

At this point I have no clue on the next logical step but I'm reasonably competent and thus would like to fix it myself to save some money and for the self gratification, not to mention being "green" (I hate the prospect of tossing it to the curb).

Can anyone provide some suggestions on the who/what/when/where/ and how about the next steps?

Thanks!

If you have a meter, check #33, The thermal limiter!!! Its a safety fuse, located at the top of the heater. If its open (no power can pass thru it) replace it.

I've got a meter. Will have to see if I can figure out how to set it to read right.

Set it to read Ohm's , when you touch the leads together the meter should move, touch a lead to each terminal of the thermal limit, If the meter dosent move , replace the limit !!!!!!

Thanks for the assistance!! It looks like the sensor is indeed bad. I'm using a digital meter and with several settings (2000k, 200k, 20k, 2000) it shows zero (0.00). Of course I disconnected the wires to it to insure I was checking only the sensor leads.

Thanks again!
