Dryer no heating, air flow good..

I have a Whirlpool

MOD: LEG8858HQ0
SER: MJ3622302
TYPE: DWSP-ELE-2406028-CVSA

I already open the back of the dryer, now my question is how to check which part is bad, I have a multimeter and I check part by part, but I'm not sure what's the readiong I should get. When I was checkig I got some readings like 0.03, 0.05 and when I check for resistant in the actual heater it only shows like this ( l . )

Thanks for your help.

By the way my e-mail is: perezf@pamf.org

    I followed your instructions and acording to the measurements on the multimeter, the Heat Element was bad, and sure it was, after I removed and noticed one of the wires was broken...



    I went and buy the replacement, my dryer its working like new..



    Thank you so much....

Hello Gamoneda,
Since you are already able to access the components in your electric dryer..( Always remove or disable power before taking any measurements like this).. Unhook the heater element itself and measure for continuity through it. You will probably get somehwere between 5 and 20 ohms ( model specific) when that element is cold. You could also have a bad upper limit thermal switch or non-resettable fuse has opened but if you are measuring any of these components for continuity.. make sure you detach any wires that are plugged into them.. If you don't do that, then you could might get false measurements by reading something that is wired in parallel with them. Hope this helps..
Regards,
Rick

Hi.

Be sure that you have checked the thermal fuse. The part is tested using a multimeter set on Ohms (impedance). Remove the fuse from dryer and read impedance touching the fuse contacts with the two multimeter probes. If impedance is Ohm infinity (open), then the fuse is bad.

If the fuse is OK because tested good or replaced, then the problem is either one of the three thermostats located in the heating group, or the heating element. All parts are tested similarly to what described for the thermal fuse. If any of the parts read open (infinity), then the part is faulty. After finding the defective part remove all the lint from heating assembly and air duct. The lint causes overheating and blows thermostats, fuse or element.

Regards.

Limit thermostat , heres how you check thermostats 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. I strongly recommend that you test your thermostat at room temperature.

Whirlpool Electric dryer type-DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54. model LER7646JQO the heating element get very hot. the dryer does not turn on. the drum does not turn either.


If the heating element is getting very hot that means there is no air flow across it. If the drum doesn't turn then the blower is not turning causing the element to get very hot. Could be drum belt, drum rollers, or motor.

Remove the back panel from the control panel to access the start switch. If there are 4 wires on the start switch,replace the start switch.
