My dryer has no heat and the timer isn't advancing. The motor runs, lights on, timer and all sensors have been replaced along with coil reading infinite on ohm meter and fuse replaced. 240v at plug and at dryer. The no heat and timer not advancing problem started when a house breaker popped while I was running a welder on the same breaker.
Answer Hello J.H.,
I would first test the voltage to the unit with the unit on to see if there is a voltage drop when under load. If so, there could be an issue with the breaker or the associated wiring. This test should be done at the terminal block where the power cord connects to the unit. If the power supply checks out good and the prongs on the power cord prongs have no burned spots on them, the issue can only be the timer motor, the timer contacts, the heating element 279838, or the motors' 279827 centrifugal switch. Since the timer has been replaced, this eliminates the timer contacts and the timer motor.
Dryer comes on but switch will not move during cycle and dryer is not hot only cold air no matter which cycle it is on. Due to the timer switch not moving dryer run continuously with no heat.
Answer Hello Katherine. 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
