On your electric dryer
there are a couple more things to check that will cause the motor to not start. I will list them in order of most likely to least likely. Let me know if you have questions on how to access them or test them.
- Circuit breaker in home. Make sure you have power to the outlet.
- Door switch, on the top right of the door opening is a lever that activates the door switch, push this in and out and you should hear it click, You can also test by jumping it or with an ohm meter for continuity.
- Thermal fuse, take the back panel off of the dryer, just to the left of the vent opening will be a white plastic device with 2 wires, this can be jumped to test or use an ohm meter to check for continuity.
- Motor, the drive motor can have open windings, if you look close the wiring terminals on the motor will have numbers. Look for 4 and 5, testing those with an ohm meter should show you under 50 ohms.
Let me know if you have questions.
