Dyer works but is not heating. Thermal fuse and heater have continuity. Helps needed for we do not know how to check the dryer cycling thermostat. Continuity across large terminals.
To check the cycling thermostat, at room temp the large terminals would have continuity and the small would not. Another thing that you can check is to disconnect the power to the unit. Remove one of the wires from the heating element, the one not attached to the thermostat. Making sure that the loose wire is not touching anything, plug the unit back in and put into a heated dry cycle. Then you will test the loose wire to chassis ground for 120 vac. This side of the circuit comes from the motor so if there is no power on this side then you will want to trace back toward the motor to make sure that the motor is getting the power. If it is getting power for the heater switch then the motor would need to be replaced. If not then trace back to the terminal block. The wire that goes to the motor will be red and will come out of the motor red to the heater. If there is power at the loose wire on the heater then you need to test the other lead that is attached to the heater for 120 vac to ground. If there is voltage there then the heater is the issue if no voltage then will need to trace back to the timer.
The dryer starts up. After a minute the heating element light up. Then goes for 1 minute, shuts off. This is on high heat.
Answer Hello Rick. The heater should cycle on and off. That is normal. You need to test at the vent on the back and see if it goes to around 150 to 160 then back down to around 100 and then back on. If so, the dryer is fine and you may have a venting issue. 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
