Dryer will not heat up. Change heating element still no heat and mositure indicator only lights up on less mositure, so I cleaned mositure sensor and still no heat. Can this be the mositure indicator?
ANSWER Hello Alive. If there is a bad connection or part, it can always affect the unit. However, in this case, it sounds like either the thermostats or thermal cut-offs are bad or there may be a voltage issue. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
