My dryer decided to not turn on at all. The washer part of it workds fine but the dryer will not do anything. I recently relplaced the heating element which had what I believe to be a thermostat in it but It looks like there is one on the blower tube. The door switch tested fine also. What else could I check the thermastat on the vent tubing looks like it has two parts to it.
ANSWER Hello Ben,
The first thing you want to do is to check your dryer venting to make sure that the vent is not clogged. Check from blower wheel all the way to the outside of home. Once you make sure it is clean then you want to do a continuity check across the thermal fuse or thermostat on the blower housing. If this reads open then you need to replace the thermostat 3204267. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
