My dryer smelled like something like cloth catching on fire, so turned off the dryer. Now the dryer won't get hot at all, took it apart and The hi-limit thermostat was chard, but would the heating elment still be okay? Should I just buy a new hi-limit thermostat?
ANSWER Hello Shelly. You can test the parts. 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 and 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
