Question about Dryers
Outlet putting out 110 on both sides, 220 together. THere is no response from the dryer at all. It just quit.
Hi, If this is a whirlpool model dryer, try this:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the
dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located
on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity.
If it does not, you need to replace it. If this is another brand dryer, please let me know the model # so I can assist yyou further.

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:
Power from the house: Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
Door switch: If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.
Thermal fuse: On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
Wiring: Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
