Dryer runs but the timer dosnt move and the heat does not come on
Answer Hi Craig. You will want to make sure that the dryer vent is clear from any obstructions. If the vent is clean, you will want to test the thermostat. The two large terminals will be closed, and the two small ones should ohm out around 250 ohms. You also need to check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Thanks!

Broken dryer, I had changed the the start button and the dryer door switch and the thermal fuse. I hold the start button and turn the timer it started once still not working.
Answer Hello Joe,
If you are pushing the start switch and it is coming on but then when you release it stops then the centrifugal switch on motor is bad and you would need to replace the motor.
My dryer will only work in cooldown mode or the low heat setting. I replaced the heat element but not sure what else could be wrong. I tested everything and it all shows good?
Answer Hello Tammy,
You may want to check to make sure that your dryer vent is clean. If the dryer vent is clogged it will cause the unit to not heat properly. It can also cause the cycling thermostat to cycle too quickly. With a model number we may be able to assist further. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
