My whirlpool dryer stopped heating so I checked the heating element it seemed to look shorted out so I replaced it and the thermostat last night plugged it up dryer worked but still no heat. Is there something I'm not checking?
ANSWER Hello Travis. 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
