kenmore, wp dryer no heat
« on: November 04, 2013, 10:28:13 PM »
mod. 110.74982300

I have no power to the heat circuit. I have power to the heat relay but no power out. I dont know how to determine if the control board is bad, the heat relay or the motor relay is bad. anyone have any ideas?

Check for 48 VDC at the coil. No voltage is a bad control board.  Check for voltage across the heat terminals. 240 VAC is a bad relay.  No voltage means the problem is somewhere else in the heating circuit.

Does the Motor run OK, but just no Heat ?

To test the Heater Relay, swap it with the Motor Relay. . .
(make a note of the wires)
then see if the Motor will still start (and stay running).
OR just measure the Coil voltage and Contact voltage of the Rely as tgoods suggested
