Eurotech Dryer Troubleshooting

Eurotech Dryer Troubleshooting. Dryer problems might be one of the worst appliance letdowns because they literally wear your clothes.

If you show up at work in wet clothing, then it’s obvious to everyone that you’re having dryer issues at home.

Fortunately, The House Tipper will show you how to diagnose the problem and solve your dryer once and for all. You’ll save yourself a few bucks and prove to your boss that you’re not just a one-trick pony.

Eurotech Dryer Troubleshooting

We will discuss some Eurotech dryer problems and how to troubleshoot them.

Eurotech Dryer Will Not Heat

The flame sensors on a gas dryer detect the heat from the flame. If the sensor isn’t working, the dryer won’t start.

Check first to see if the gas valve is sending enough power to fire up and if it is, check whether other sensors need replacing.

It could be that it’s just a case of a faulty flame sensor which can usually be tested by a qualified engineer at room temperature with a multimeter.

The heating element warms the air before it enters the dryer drum. Over time, the heating element can burn out, causing the dryer not to heat.

To determine if the heating element has burned out, use a multimeter to test it for continuity.

The appliance will not turn on unless there is continuity when this test is done. If there is no continuity, the heating element needs to be replaced.

The moisture sensor has to make sure that clothes are dry enough before being tumbled by the dryer.

If the sensor is bad it can give a faulty signal that the clothes aren’t quite dry yet, causing your clothing and money to be wasted on an unnecessary cycle.

But if you find that everything else attached to your control board is working correctly, it’s more likely than not that the problem is with this one small part.

First inspect all of the parts most commonly broken to see whether any of them need replacing, then replace moisture sensor if necessary.

The cycling thermostat cycles the heat on and off to regulate the air temperature. If the cycling thermostat is defective, the dryer will not heat.

However, this is rarely the case. Before replacing the cycling thermostat check all of the other components that are more commonly known to burn out before the cycling thermostat which includes: thermal fuse, heating element, gas valve, high limit thermostat, or igniter.

If you have determined that all of your other parts are working properly, then test for continuity using a multimeter to determine if it is working. Replace it if it does not work.

Eurotech Dryer Spinning Stopped

The drum bearing is part of the dryer that turns the rotor. Over time, it wears out and must be replaced. If the drum bearing is worn out, it might put too much stress on the motor and may even cause the unit to stop mid-cycle.

To find out if a new drum bearing is needed, first remove the belt and try rotating the drum manually by hand.

If it spins freely without giving off high-pitched squealing or grinding noises and/or being hard to rotate, then you can rule that part out as needing replacement.

The drive belt is a round, flat belt that wraps around the tumble dryer drum and then around the motor pulley.

If it’s not working correctly, your machine won’t turn at all. To find out if the drive belt needs replacing, reach into the machine and try to manually make the drum turn; if it moves freely, this indicates that you need to change the belt.

Next, check that it needs changing by looking at it – hasn’t it cracked or frayed in any way? If so, then you’ll definitely have to invest in a new one.

Eurotech Dryer Will Not Start

The start switch can be tested by starting the dryer. If the dryer hums but does not start, the start switch is not at fault.

If the dryer does not respond or make any noise, the start switch could be at fault. Use a multi-meter to test for continuity on the start switch. If you do not have continuity, replace it.

The door switch turns the dryer on when it’s closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking noise when activated.

To check if the door switch is working, turn on your dryer and wait for the click.

If you hear a click, then it’s likely to be ok if not, use your ohmmeter to test for continuity across the door switch terminals. If there is no continuity here then chances are it has gone faulty and needs replacing.

Inspect the idler pulley for the dryer drum belt and make sure it spins freely on the shaft.

If you discover that the idler pulley is stuck, worn, or damaged, in addition to replacing the drum drive belt one should also replace the idler pulley if necessary.

Most dryers have two drum rollers on the rear and other dryers have four rollers. The rollers must spin freely to work properly because they support the drum while drying your clothes.

If one or more of the drum rollers are worn out, we recommend replacing all of them at once so they will be functioning correctly as well as protecting against any unnecessary problems that you may run into often if you don’t keep your drum in good working order.
