Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
starts with E nr
Hi Kevin, the model no. is E-Nr.WTE86304GB/05.
was it heating perfectly fine before it stopped working ?
Yes, it dried the first load as usual.
looking at the age of this appliance and from what you have described the problem is with the control board that is bad and will need replacement
the power is getting to the unit as the fuse and wiring is fine
When you say 'that is bad' does that mean very expensive, in which case and in view of the age of the machine, might it be a better proposition to buy a new dryer?
the cost of new board is around £250
if you want to check it yourself you can remove the board behind the panel and check if for any burn marks
as the power is getting to the unit, and even if you do not see any burn marks it is going to be the board that will need replacement
and yes it is better to buy a new one instead of spending £250 on the control...a new dryer will cost around £300
Thanks Kevin, £250 plus the cost of a technician to replace it - it looks like a new appliance is in order.
