Question about Kenmore 62602 Electric Dryer
Runs but doesn't get hot the dryer is about 14 years old. Could it be the heating element or is it something else?.
DRYER HEATED FOR A SHORT TIME THEN STOPS HEATING, CHECKED OPERATING THERMOSTAT 0 OHMS, ONE SET OF WIRES,OTHER READS 5 OHMS.THERMAL FUSE 0 OHMS.HI LIMIT THERMOSTAT 0 OHMS.THERMAL CUT OUT 0 OHMS.HEATING ELEMENT READS 0 OHMS.SHOULD"NT THIS READ ABOUT 9-13? ONE HALF OF ELEMENT HAS A DARK BLACK COLOR LIKE IT GOT HOT OR BURNED.
If all of the components are reading ok then you need a timer. Touch your 2 leads together. 0 ohms rght. That means you have a complete circuit.If you get the 0 reading then the element must be otay. Bad timer. Take that fancy meater of yours and atttach one of them leads to the timer leg marked RH. Yank the wire off the terminal beore you test. Move the timer around. You should get the famous 0 reading along the way. If you don't then that means you have the bad timer.
