Question about Estate Dryers
My Estate dryer quit heating and will not time out. Both problems started simultaneously. Heating element is good, getting 220v to the dryer, and replaced the timer. High limit thermostat, thermal cutoff, and thermostat check good. Any ideas?
Did you remove the wires from each component before checking them? You got something open there.

Testimonial: "You are correct. Somehow I screwed up the check on the heating coil. I'm getting an open circuit, and last night put my eyes on the burned out section of the coil. Should have listened to everyone that said that the timer is rarely the problem. $85 mistake, but lesson learned. Anyone need a timer for an estate dryer? I have two :-)"

SOURCE: NO HEAT
Check for 220 volts incoming at the terminal block where your cord connects.
Make certain the dryer wiring is good there also.
Check the heating element to a ground on the dryer.
Check the continuity tthrough the start switch on the motor.
for the heater wire connection.

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

SOURCE: can't control heat setting
Either your dryer vent is clogged, the blower wheel is striped out and not turning or the internal bias thermostat you bought is bad. These are the only things that can make the dryer over heat.
Please rate solution.

Hello, Before you replaced all those parts did you check each with a multimeter by performing an ohms test or measuring for continuity? By doing this it would tell if any of the parts that you had replaced were at fault. You can also conduct the same test on the heater as well. when performing any ohms or continuity test make sure the unit is unplugged and that you also unplug the part as well from the wires that are connected to it. I await your reply if you have any other questions. Thank you
