Question about Dryers
Hi I will give you some tips on what to check then you may have to tear into the machine. First reset your breaker for the dryer it should be on it's own breaker in the electrial box. They use a double pole if it's 220 v once you reset the breakers without any clothes in the dryer try useing it on heat again. If it still don't work you need to be sure you have Voltage to the wall pulg on both sides. You can do this if you have a volt meter or if you don't you can buy a cheep one at radio shack for ten bucks. once you have a meter you need to put the black lead on the grond of the plug and one on one of the other legs of the wall plug, set your meter to 220 volts so you don't damage your meter. If you have 110 volts to the wall socket then your next step is to test the heating element with the ohm meter setting but you need to remove the cover to do this and for me to do this I need the dryer model to give you specfic directions to get to the heater. Hope this helps.
