My drier blows heat one time out of 10. I have replaced the thermostat and the 309 degree fuse already. I have continuity through the thermal fuse and the heating element itself. I have got voltage from all of the terminals at the heating element and the common ground. But I have now heat most times I run the drier. I was able to let the drier sit for 30 minutes or so between cycles and it would heat up again. Now if it heats up once in a 24 hour period, I consider myself lucky. I am not wanting the expense of a repair man nor replacing the entire drier if I only need a part. I am pretty mechanically inclined and can replace parts if I just know what to replace. Thank you for your help.
ANSWER Hello James. It is either the motor or timer not sending 120 to the heater, 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
