Question about Dryers
I did the tests and i think it might be the main timer switch, but what wires do i check to tell if it is pooched. my wife is the one who originally wrote you and i just wanted to state that when we turn the knob to set the timer and push it in to turn it on, absolutely nothing happens. there is power going to the circuit board so its not the breaker. and thankyou for the already useful tips on how to check the other elements.
Umm yes woulda thought for sure a thermal fuse and/or elemnt would be the issue there, how about checking the door switch, if hte door switch doesnt make contact the machine would do nothing as well ( ptting your ear to the timer knob usually will hear hte low "ticking" of an energized timer, if you dont have that i would look to the doors witch. and dont be so quick to rule out a breaker issue either, its on a double breaker, quite possible that h1/2 your electric could be knocked out, completely turn off breaker and reset. to properly check for voltage at he unit you should have 240v. that would be( red to white 110v, black to white 110v, and black to red 220-240v) ifyou dont have that you have an electricla issue.
