During the past few months, our dryer was not getting hot enough to dry the clothes. I cleaned out the ductwork to the exterior, plus I cleaned out as much as I could get to inside the dryer, no change, still less heat. A day or two ago the dryer stopped making any heat at all, but the blower works, and the inside rotates. Any suggestions on what part, or parts, I should obtain to start my repairing?
ANSWER Hello Sid. 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 heater Y308612 and thermal fuses 303396 307473 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. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
