Question about Dryers
Having proper voltage to the terminal block and heating element is a start. You need to perform resistance checks on your Thermal Cut-Out (TCO), Hi-Limit Thermostat and Heating Element with the dryer unplugged to determine the cause of your no heat problem. The following link explains how to troublehshoot a no heat problem:
NOTE: The TCO and Hi-Limit Thermostat are located on the outside of the heater box. The TCO is mounted at the opposite end of the heating element terminals, while the Hi-Limit Thermostat is located adjacent to the heating element terminals. Both these components should read a short (0 ohms) if good. If either of these components is bad, it is strongly recommended that you replace BOTH at the same time to prevent premature failure. That's why these parts are commnly sold together as a kit.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
