How do I test heating elements and identify leads

The heating elements can be tested for continuity using a voltage meter. Continuity is "continueness". If no continuity, then you need to replace the elements. They are sold based on the voltage and amperage of the water heater. That information is available on the information tag on the side of the tank.

Leisure Bay -My spa will not heat - no FLC/FLO code/Voltage is correct/4KW Dry Element Heater test 15.9 Ohm across leads and OL on each to housing

It appears per your test that the heater May not be the problem as it shows that it may be good.

Your error message is a Flow condition / Restriction

Try cleaning the filter

Dishwasher does not dry dishes. dishes are not hot at end of cycle. seems like heating element is not heating

Connect a volt meter one lead at each terminal of the heater. Read the voltage when it is in the drying cycle. If you get about line voltage the heating element is bad. If you get no or very little voltage it is the timing unit. If you are uncomfortable measuring voltage remove one of the wires from the heating element, after unplugging it, then connect a ohm meter across the heater. If it reads above about 50 ohms it is bad, if not probably the timer. Of course you could always connect a light bulb across the two heater terminals and if it lights during the drying cycle the heater is bad.
Good Luck,

How do i test my elements to see if there good?

get a $5 voltage/ohmmeter testor from home depot or likewise and check for "continuity" with the setting on one terminal on one screw of the element, and the other terminal on the other screw of the element(MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF TO THE WATER HEATER--YOU DO NOT WANT TO FEEL 240 VOLTS PASS THRU YOU!) you are looking for resistance to flow---if your ohmmeter's needle raises or digitals are shown, then you have resisatance to flow which means there is no breakage in the element and electricity can pass thru the whole element and work to heat your water---if you get no reading then you have no resistance to flow because there is a break in the element and it won't work anymore

KW9B model, power to unit but no heat when timer

Heaters are pretty simple: when timer is on, voltage is applied to the heater elements until timer turns off. To troubleshoot your problem, use a multimeter or circuit tester to check the terminal connections on the heating elements themselves. With the timer ON, you should be able to read voltage (120 or 240, depending on your heater) at those connections. If you don't check the continuity of the wiring from your timer to your heater. Continuity w/out voltage at the element indicates a faulty timer, no continuity means bad wiring. If you do read voltage at the element but it isn't heating, your element is burnt out -- time to replace it. If it's a newly assembled setup or seems odd to be burnt out for some other reason, double check that you're using the correct voltage for that particular heater... 120vac won't run a heater rated at 240vac.

Unit is GQ3RA-036K with H3HK010H-01B heat strip. I have checked continuity on the coils and the temperature switch both check fine. I have measure the voltage on the red and black wires connected to the...

you need to ohm out the heater elements. Its the ohm reading that will give you insight as to whether or not the coils are bad.

When ohming out the elements, be sure to tag and disconnect all electrical leads to the meter...otherwise you will get a false reading.

If the elements read OL, then they are bad. Also, check to see what the voltage is to the heaters. Ensure the voltage supplied corresponds with the unit dataplate.

Whirlpool Dryer not heating

The motor has to be running for voltage to exit the motor going to the heater. With the back off the dryer and the motor running you should read 220 volts at the heater if all safetys and thermostats are good.
There is a thermal cut out relay on the heat canister. It must read continuity also.
Remember you must remove at least one wire from each component being tested to get a true open or closed reading. If a wire is left connected you get a false reading.
The heating element could be broken and part of the heater wire touching the canister. This would cause a continuity reading and still no heat.
Finally, yes,the centrifugal switch in the motor could be bad and not sending power to the heater on the red wire.

Tumble dryer running but only blowing cold air

If your dryer is turning then things are not so bad. If a dryer is not heating then you need to check a few things.

First disconnect the power to the unit. Then you must check the heating element and the limits which are mounted on the heating box.
Remove one lead from the element and check for continuity thru the element. If you have continuity then check the limit by measuring for continuity, again you must remove one of the leads. This should solve your problem

Is heater element bad

Does sound like the element is bad, confirm with a multimeter, should see 120v across the element terminals, if voltage is present check for continuity of the heating element with the power off, no continuity equals bad element.
