For Whirlpool Timer (Part Number: AP3131541)

Answer or Comment

My dryer runs, but does not heat up. First happened on the automatic dry mode, then tried the timed dry mode, and the timer never moved. Vent is not plugged or kinked. Checked continuity on the heating element, the high limit thermostats, the thermal fuse, and the operating thermostat. All had closed circuits. Heating element was not grounding out. I'm assuming its a bad timer, but want to confirm my assumption before I buy a new one.

ANSWER Hello Jacob. Unplug the heater and find the dead wire. Then trace the wire and see where you are loosing power at. Then replace the bad part. Be careful as you are dealing with live power doing this test. 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
