Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer
Hi I have a defy autodry, front loading dryer, which is not drying, but otherwise working. how and what and where do i check for or change the heating element? or what to do. I live in Malawi Africa and there are no service providers available.
Check that you have 220v first. Your dryer will work on 110V but will not dry. You need to check all thermostats with a ohm meter (be sure to unplug dryer), they should be 2 ohms or less. Set ohm meter to 1x. If they are good go to heating element (your ohm meter should be on 1X as wel. You need to check to make sure you have continuity (however, this does not mean that it is not bad). You need to take it out and visually inspect it to make sure it has no breaks in the coil. If it does you can buy a rewire kit for runder 30 bucks for most models.
