Good Morning, the dryer doesn't work at all. I've checked the timer/switch, tsats I can see, door switch, heating element and the rest of the easy things I know about. The drum spins freely, point me in the right direction please.

ANSWER Hello Dave. On the side of the heater housing is a thermal fuse LA-1053. If it is bad, it will prevent the unit from working. It should read closed for continuity. 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
