Dryer not working
« on: March 15, 2010, 10:47:43 PM »

Hello, I am having a problem with my dryer right now as it is not running at all. I've checked the power, and timer and they seem to be working properly. I have also tried using a multimeter to check if the motor has power and it seems to be fine. The fuse is perfectly fine when I took the dryer apart to check it, but it doesn't seem to be working. Also, the light doesn't turn when I open the dryer door. Thanks in advance.
