Question about Dryers
Drum turns, forceful COLD air blows, no heat. I changed the Hi-Limit Thermostat, Thermostat Cut-out, & heating element. The receptal reads 240V. I checked the voltage while the dryer was plugged up and got 240v at the pigtail where it connects to the dryer also. The red & black wire checked 240v at the timer/switch. When I check the terminal at the heating element, I get 125V. I touch the red wire with the red lead ( from the meter) to the terminal and the black lead (from the meter) to the metal housing to get the read of 125v. Both red wire terminals together get no read. All red wires to every thermostat gets the read of 125v. Is it suppose to have 240v? Where should I look next. I have not checked the motor. I have just taken off the back of the dryer. Could there be something on the motor that is not working? I'm at my wits end. thanks for trying to help.
