Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have followed the tech sheet that came with the dryer with no success...had my washer fixed the other day by a repairman and the next day the dryer tumbles normally but has no heat hmmm. Following the troubleshooting the outlet as the right voltage, 240 and 110. The one test I did called for checking continuity from the L1 connection on the plug with black wire on timer, this did NOT have continuity, so they say to fix or repair main wire harness, that a needle in a haystack. I did check the heater and it had 10 ohms of resistance as did the thermistor (too much for the thermistor?), the high limit thermostat had continuity as did the thermal cutoff switch as well as the thermal fuse. Can the problem be the heater relay with everything I have checked? The guide does not mention it or how to test it...the light inside was burn't out, still trying to determine if there is a connection there...Ran diagnostics per guide and checked out...thoughts?
Mine doesnt work at all. i checked the current and the heat duct sensors and the wires, whats next??

I solved the problem. The problem was the heater relay. Once I troubleshot the system and realized the wiring was likely good, the only answer was the heater relay. Since the heater relay and motor relay are identical I swapped them to make sure and now the motor didn't work. Picked up a new relay for $30 and it was fixed...
