Speed Queen electric dryer problem
« on: February 06, 2016, 12:31:52 PM »
 I have a Speed Queen electric dryer model number AES28AWF with s/n 0609014766 that I rec'd yesterday knowing it would not heat. I have tested  this unit  after putting on a new power cord and repairing a burned  black wire at the one side of the heating element. It turns the drum fine and all t-stats check OK but I cannot get any heat  out of it. The heat selector switch was bypassed but still no heat. I also tried it by bypassing the terminals on the timer and no heat. This timer is different than most I have seen although it uses a small 110 volt motor to turn the internal parts. The  heating element has continuity and I even bypassed the 2 t-stats on the face  to no avail. I am not sure where to go next on this one and wondered if anyone has an insight that would help me find the problem here.  Need advice.

After much head scratching I finally was able to find the problem area on this dryer which prevented it from heating. It turned out to be the switch  and wiring plug assembly on the motor where  the wiring passes thru to the heating element. It was a quirky problem and i was able to fix it using a switch assembly off an old motor. I was beginning to question my sanity after checking and rechecking every part of the circuit until I narrowed it down to this area. It now runs great and provides good heat. It looked like this dryer might have been in water sometime recently.
