Question about Dryers
I wouldn't blame the motor just yet...The very first thing to check is for a venting problem. Make sure the vents are clear and that there is good air flow all the way to the outside. Next, check the thermal fuse and the heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Most of the time this type problem can be traced to a clogged vent, but you want to ensure that the thermal fuse is good and that the heating element isn't grounded out. Make sure you unplug the dryer before conducting any electrical tests. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
