Make sure your vent is clear!!!! Turn the dryer on and check it on the outside of the house for a good strong airflow. A dryer needs three principle's to work properly... Heat, Air flow, and tumble action. If any one of these are gone, your gonna have wet clothes.
Well got it apart thanks to JWWebsters post.Tested element and tested good.Not sure on how to test the thermostats. Do you check ohms too? or ?ThanksIll do some searching to see what I can find... The thermostats are basically the same on all models as far as testing them right?
The wires leading to the thermostat are connected using metal slip on connectors. Remove the wires by pulling on the connectors, and not the wires themselves. It may be a good idea to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.Set your multimeter to the R X 1 setting. Take each of your meter's probes and touch one to each terminal. You are testing for continuity, and you should receive a reading of either zero or infinity. At room temperature, testing the thermostat should produce a reading of zero. But if a thermostat is tested when it is heated to its limit, a reading of infinity should be produced. We strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.If the test you conduct with your thermostat does not produce these results, then you should replace the component.
I use the audio beeping fluke. If it beeps its good. If all thermostats check out you might need to remove the timer and clean the contacts inside. This timer is easy to repair. Just open it up and file clean the contacts. Nothing to it.
