follow up question . The door switch checks good and the thermo switch on the blower housing checks closed between the large terminals and 4ohms between the small ones. Thermal fuse is closed . Thanks for your help
Answer Roger, The cycling thermostat 31001192 has nothing to do with the dryer starting or running, it controls the temperatures in the drum. Based on your information and the checks you've made, this dryer should start run and heat properly ? You should start by checking and make sure that the power cord connections at the terminal block are good and tight. It is possible for the thermal fuse to circuit check OK, but not carry the return voltage to neutral source (middle terminal on block). You could TEMPORARILY attach the two wires from the fuse together, and test the dryer to start and run, DO NOT LEAVE FUSE BYPASSED, this will help verify the thermal fuse condition. If the issue still persists, you'll need to check for voltage out of the timer (120 VAC on the M terminal/orange wire) to the motor when the timer knob is pressed in to start the dryer. These are "LIVE" voltage tests, so be very careful.
Dryer Will not do anything. Replaced timer no change. Getting power to dryer.
You will want to check the thermal fuse that is located on the blower housing for continuity. If there is no continuity then you would need to replace the thermal fuse. Also check the door switch with the door closed for continuity and if there is no continuity then the switch is bad and will need to be replaced.
