Please help! My dryer quit working so I replaced both thermostats on the top of the drum housing. Then after tracing the wires I found that the timer internals were broken. So then I ordered a new timer. In the process of all this, I shorted out the coils. That was my fault cause I shorted the drum against them. I bought new coils and installed them. but, I still dont have heat! I checked the voltage coming into dryer and its correct. I checked coils and they have continuity. Pretty much all my internals are new. I have spent $180.00 so far and still dont have heat?

ANSWER Hi Kris. Look at the terminal block and make sure all are tight and you have 120vac respectively between the outer 2 terminals to the middle (neutral) each. Jump the start switch part # WE4X782 to see if it starts (only). Check the door switch part # WE4X197 to see if it has open contacts and not passing the neutral to the motor. Follow the wiring diagram supplied behind the timer to make sure you do not use the 3rd wire that feeds the light bulb. Thank You.
