Question about Dryers
Dryer: Roper by Whirlpool-5 cycle electric dryer.
Power supply: 220 volts confirmed at main power terminal in dryer/rear panel removed.
Initially the dryer would start but the element would not heat up on any setting. The heating element was replaced along with the timer. The unit would start but again would not heat up. I was probing with a dvom and may have caused a short circuit. Now the dryer wont start in addition to not heating initially.
Recheck for 220 at plug. May have tripped breaker.
PULL PLUG FIRST!!
Remove rear panel. Check for continuity at white thermal fuse located near bottom center on the blower housing. It should close to 0 resistance. Also check hi-limits on side of heater housing. Also should be close to 0 resistance. If any are open, replace and clear venting. Also remove 4 screws on bottom of filter housing and pull bottom of housing out. Reach in and remove lint.
