Smell of oil or cleaning fluid and takes longer to dry
For model number MEDC400VW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Susan, Thank you for your question. If it is taking a long time for your dryer to dry clothes and you are getting a chemical or oil smell when it is in use, you may have a blockage in the vent duct. Check the lint filter and the vent duct to make sure that that they are free of lint. If they are clogged, you will need to clean them as they restrict air flow. If you have any questions, please let us know. We are open 7 days a week. We look forward to hearing from you!

No Heat
First tried heating element and thermal fuse with no luck. Ordered thermal cutoff and fixed problem. Had I used an ohm meter first I would have determined problem before having ordered heating element and fuse, as both had resistance. I wast just lazy and ordered the took the most common failed components first before taking dryer back off.

Dryer Would Not Turn Off With Door Open
Pryed dryer top open and opened front door. . Unscrewed the 2 retaining screws. Pulled old switch from the wiring harness. Put new switch in place and replaced the retaining screws. Put new switch wire plug into the wiring harness. Before closing top, checked door switch function with dryer on. Dryer cut off when door open and when closed dryer started normally. . . Maint. Note instruction book should warn that letting door slam, which I did on occaision, broke the switch arm. Might save future problems.
