My dryer runs but does not get hot at all. What should I do?
Answer Hello Gerry. 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
my dryer works but takes a long time to dry. is this heating element bad? how can you check element?
Answer Scott. You will want to make sure the venting for the dryer is clear from any obstructions. This will be the first thing you would want to check for long dry times. Thanks!
