Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
The first thing you need to do is pull the dryer forward and remove the back access panel where the power cord connects to the back of the dryer. With a multimeter, test and make sure you have 220 volts between the 2 outside power wires from your power cord at the terminal block. The dryer will run but it will not heat with only 110 volts. Other than that, it sounds like your element went bad or your high limit cut out went bad. If you remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the lower front panel, the lower front panel will pull down and off. This will give you access to the heating element canister under the tub on the right side. Unplug the dryer and look on the left side of the heating canister. There are 2 little devices with 2 wires connected to each of them. The one near the back is your cut off. Check the resistance of this part and if it doesn't have continuity through it, it needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the part.
If both those parts have continuity, test the heater for continuity and if it doesn't have continuity, replace the heater.
