Question about Kenmore Dryers
Test the heating element and the thermostat.
Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.
To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.
The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.
If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.
