If you have got 0.00 meter reading that means that is an open circuit (bad fuse, replace that dude. When it is blown the dryer will not run. Clean out the dryer and vent or that baby will just blow again.

Other suggestions are check the door switch for continuity. Check the terminal block where the cord connects for 220 volts. Check the start switch for continuity. All these should be checked with the dryer unplugged,except the 220 volts to the terminal block.

JW is correct. Both parts should read ohms/continuity.

JW,

0.00 ohms would mean the fuse is good because there is no resistance.
If the fuse was bad you would get no reading at all because the fuse is open.

Alright guys I am a little confused here.... ??? Someone is telling me I have a bad fuse and someone else is telling me the fuse is good. Is there anymore trouble shooting I can do to try to determine what really wrong with my dryer?
