Changed igniter (broken) still no heat could thermal fuse be problem? Checked all others on burner, seems ok
Answer Hello Bill. Test and see if your getting power to the igniter 279311. Also test the thermal fuses W10423382 and flame sensor 338906. They should read closed for continuity. Check the coils 279834 and see if they test good. You can test the coils using a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The two prong coil will read 1,000-1,300 ohms, and the three prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1&3. Hope this helps.

Dryer not heating.
Answer Hello Leo. The cycling thermostat should show resistance on the small terminals and closed on the large. 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
Does the dryer have a swtch on tensioner pulley? When belt is broken dryer doesn't works.
Yes when the belt breaks the unit does have a broken belt switch 279782 that does not allow the unit to operate.
The dryer runs but the heat doesn't come on.
Answer Hello Isai. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
The dryer no longer heats. Do I replace the heating element or could it be something else?
Answer Hello Isis, after you disconnect power to the unit, the next thing to do is check for restricted or blocked venting. This can cause the dryer to run too hot and blow a thermal fuse 3390719 or thermostat 3391914 killing power to the element 3387747. Sometimes it's just a burnt wire but, here's a link to help you with troubleshooting. Thanks! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#electric
