Question about GE Dryers
GE dryer model ddsr475et3ww
The dryer power to the heater has become disconnected. This could be a fusible link, loose connection to the heater, or the heater itself is burned open.
Disconnect the dryer from receptacle and open the top up.
Use a Volt-ohm meter to check continuity using ohms. Connect one lead of the meter to one end of the heater and the other lead to the other end of the heater. It should read some value, not sure of exact value, but a reading indicates continuity. No reading means the heater is open circuit.
If the heater is found th be ok, you need to find what is keeping power from getting to the heater. You have High temp sensor, and should have a fusible link that will open the circuit if the temperature gets dangerously hot. These links are normally embedded near the heater and have a wire connecting on two terminals. Trace back from the heater connection to devices before it to find which device is keeping you from getting power to the heater.
