Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Begin by measuring voltage between the two outside terminals where the cord hooks up, red & black. You should read 240 VAC, please let me know what you read and I will get you instructions on accessing the element for testing.

To access the heating element, you will need to depress the clips that secure the top, number 7 in the picture below. Once released, the top will hinge up and lean against the back wall.

Once the top is up, in the upper RH corner, near where the cord is attached, is a thermal fuse. If it opens, there will be no heat. Test this part (number 36 below) for continuity. Let me know what you read.

Be sure to unplug the dryer before testing with the lid up!

My friend left with his meter... from the wall socket or from the 4 wire i install... we just moved and i hook up a new four wire.i made L1 red, N white, L2 Black , and green to a green wire and green screw. if it reads a resistance ... than what
Okay, so you have it hooked up correctly, provided you have the proper voltage. It is possible (and very common) to lose one side of the breaker and have power to run the motor, but not have the other leg to the heater. If you have continuity through the thermal fuse and proper voltage, the element is likely bad. I have posted a video link to show you how to access and replace the element, if necessary. I have also provided a link to the heating element.


The link below is to the part you will need from a company with the best return policy in the industry. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
