Duet dryer won't heat. Vent clear, air blows full force, no error codes, reset breakers already.
Answer Hello MM. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Also check the heater and thermal fuses and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Hope this helps.

How many ohms go through the high-limit thermostat?
Answer Hello Jeff,
When room temperature, the high limit thermostat should show 0 ohms of resistance. It will open and show infinite resistance, (OL), when heated to the high tolerance of the component. If it shows any resistance other than what the meter reads when the leads are touched together, it should be replaced.
Lost heat in dryer for the second time in 2 years, first time I replaced the heating element with no problems. This time I noticed the wire that goes from the top element plug to the Hi-Limit Thermostat looked melted.Is this a sign the Hi-Limit Thermostat is junk?? Thanks..Tom
Answer Tom, No, not necessarily, It does indicate a high or extended amperage draw on the heat system. You may want to consider this as a replacement 279973 and 279457 to be sure the system is safe and check all the wires for loose connections including the connections at the power cord terminal block.
