He error. Heating element 11ohms, fuses and thermistor all test OK for current - closed.

Listen, if you have 240 at the wall then the full 240 or 120 a piece is not getting to your element. Something, a contact or switch is open on one of the two lines and unless both are properly feeding the heating element there is no way it will ever heat up!

Using an ohmmeter, trace the wiring back for the wall connection to each of the two legs connected to the element. One of the legs is open!

Kemore dryer model 65862 not heating. Replaced the heating element and verified that the thermastat is getting continuity.

do you have both power phases as in 120 volts per leg? also check your neutral wire at the dryer element if it uses one, they carry the im-balance of current and get brittle with age and break at the heating terminal connection

My maytag electric dryer all of a sudden stopped heating up spinning. the timer moves and the light is on inside though.

sounds like youve lost one leg of power to the unit, the element uses 240 volts and the motor and timer are connected one on each 120 volt leg to balance out the electrical load chk your input power for 240volts first

My electric dryer works but no heat is coming out

First check he power coming in you ned 220v if one leg of the power is missing you will still feed 110v which will allow the motor to work but not heat the next step is to remove the back panel un plug the unit and test the thermal fuse on the upper left side of the heating element enclouser if this ok then check for a broken element

It wont heat up

Check to make sure that both legs of the 220V feed are presnt. The motor will run on only one leg. Otherwise, on that model, check the thermal overloads mounted on the heater box, and also check the heating element for continuity.

MY drier heating element shows 9 ohms continuity, it also shows 120 volts into and out of it when the drier is running. But the heating element wont heat up?

Have you checked the voltage at the outlet? You're supposed to read 220-240 VAC at the heating element. Your dryer heating circuits require at least 220 VAC to work. The motor, however, only uses 120 VAC. That's why your dryer may be running, but the heating circuits aren't heating. I would go back and check your outlet. You may be missing one leg of the 220 service, or have a loose, burned, or broken wire in the plug or terminal block (on the back of the dryer). Let me know what you find. I hope this helps you.

Does the Maytag LSE7806ACE require a 220 plug?

If you hook it up to 120 volts (by connecting L2[red] to common [white] the dryer will operate, but your heating element will only produce 25% of the heat it would on a 220v circuit. The drying time would be about 3 hours, and the auto dry setting may not work. Heat difference is about 5000 watts of heat on 220v, vs 1250 watts on 120v circuit.
