Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a hot point dryer Model Number 74038bb.
The thing is making a funny noise like something is scapping against it when the dryer is going. then it started to get really hot the other day,
I turned it off for about hour, but left it plugged in. i opened the door and the heating element was still glowing with the dryer turned off. it was getting hotter & hotter to the touch.i turned it on and
the drum is still turning, but there is no heat what so ever.
it is a relay with 120v solenoid coil and 120v terminals for the motor and 240v terminals for the heater. the 240v side has fused closed so does not turn off. not a repairable item replace the relay
solenoid coil terminals should have about 100ohm on the meter, faint glow on the lamp
relays are $18 -$90 (rippoff but some have to use OEM parts)
