Question about Dryers
Anything to check, cause my electric dryer sat outside and got rained on? I've already changed the cord and plug, it was 3 prong now its a 4prong
You need a test instrument called a megger to tell the value of the insulation of the machine, one thing you can do is use an ohm meter between the power leads and frame, if you have a lot of resistance it is likely you can use it.
Is it inside now in a temp controlled area?
Can you get the back off with taking out probably several screws to expose the insides?
If so you can set a heater with a blower by it and blow warm air inside to dry out any wet insulation, the goal is to make sure no insulation anywhere, controls, wiring, motor is still wet and will conduct when you first plug it in.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
