SECTION E - HOW THE COMPONENTS WORK Clothes dryers remove moisture from clothes by pulling air, either warmed or room temperature, through the clothes while they are being tumbled by a turning drum. The moisture from the clothes is exhausted through the dryer vent system to the outside of the house.
Electronic control board the plenum allow the air to be drawn across the heating element. In any cycle, other than Air Fluff, the heating element heats the air as it passes through. Airflow Since the moisture in the clothes is removed by air mov- ing through the drum, it is important to understand the complete air flow system.
front of the dryer. Airflow gas dryers: The airflow in gas dryers is similar to electric dryers except for the heat source and the rear of the drum. The air enters the cavity through the louvered opening in the right rear corner of the dryer. The air is pulled across the gas burner, through the burner chamber and is ducted to the rear of the drum.
Restrictions: Electrical Operation (Electric Dryers Models) Restrictions can occur any place in the airflow system, Note: Always refer to the wiring diagram or schematic but the most common are: with the product. 1. Installing the dryer in a small inclosed area; such as a closet without a louvered door that reduces the intake air.
Drive Motor Circuit: the other end of the motor shaft to pull the air through the clothes and force it out the exhaust vent. When power is connected to the dryer, line 1 is applied Temperature Sensing Circuit: through the thermal limiter (a non-resettable fuse mounted on the rear wall of the dryer) to the COM.

first solenoid remains open when the current through the booster coil is reduced. The reduction of current flow through the igniter reduces heat from the igniter but the sensor contacts are held open by the heat of the burner flame.
