Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
Probably not a fuse on the machine. Troubleshooting guides always say something like, "check fuses, check breaker" meaning to check for power to the machine first. It's the first thing to check when diagnosing problems.
I own a laundromat and had a normally very reliable machine that did everything right but it would not spin. I checked and rechecked everything and at some point it would run again and the next day broke down again. This went on for a couple months. Eventually i put the machine "out of order" and it sat for a week like that. Through trial and error, flipping the breaker on and off it became apparent that it was the breaker causing the problem. When i investigated i realized the 220 breaker had simply pulled away from the bottom and was no longer properly making full contact. It had enough power to perform all the functions but not enough to spin. After reseating the breaker the machine has been trouble free. If i'd checked that first instead of thinking the machine had plenty of power because it seemed to be doing everything else correctly i'd have saved a lot of time and frustration.
But enough about my life lessons. Does your machine have any power at all going to it?

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
