Question about Dryers
Checked thermal fuse. good. checked High Limit thermostat. good. replaced heating element. New heating element does not light up. what could cause this.
SOURCE: my kenmore 70 series dryer
Are you getting any heat at all? Did you change the thermal cut-off which is mounted near the top of the heater box? This is the only other piece in the heating circuit. If you changed it already you could have problem in the timer or in motor. There is a switch in the motor that controls heat also.

Yes, I agree it is the high limit thermostat, or the motor is bad!

if you have all those parts , i would indeed replace them all. it will allow your entire heating circuit to strat fresh
just ensure all your paddle connections are tight
but check your heater for continuity too

Testimonial: "Thanks, I'll replace everything! "
in this case we put the lower temp thermostat in the oven at 170 degrees till it was hot and measured with ohm meter and it was open. After it cooled down some it went back to being a short. Now with this part in the dryer and the new high temp thermostat
and it blew shortly after being turned on. A possiblity is that there is a short by passing the 150 degree thermostat and the element keeps being on and causes the 350 degree thermostate to blow.
