whirlpool dryer LTE6234dQ0 no heat


My brother in law's electric whirlpool dryer LTE6234dQ0:
1. drum spins
2. No heating

1. I checked both lines and getting 120 from each to neutral and 240 v across both
2. checked for continuity (all had it) and jumpered all thermostat cutoffs and safeties with no heat
3. I'm assuming it is the the dryer timer. I checked for continuity on terminal BK to Rd and got nothing (supposedly, according to wiring diagram it should be continuity).

Any suggestions or should I order the $80 timer?

Thanks,
Bob

Is there a thermal fuse present?

It's out of my area of expertise, but I have had a similiar issue. I checked the thermostate on the heaterbox and then the fuse. My fuse was shot. I believe it was a $7 replacement and I was up and running.

Thanks Jason.
I bypassed both of those and it did not seem as if the coil was heating up any.
Both also showed continuity (not open) so I assumed that they were both good.
That led to the timer being the faulty part.

the timer is the last thing I would be looking at for a no heat problem. When you are doing your continuity checks are you disconnecting 1 side? Do you have the wiring diagram available? If all your thermos check out and your thermal fuse is ok then you need to refer to the diagram and check each leg of power going to the elemnet idividualy. One side will go through all the thermos. etc., and one side will go through the motor windings.

Hardware,
Yes, all checks were done with both wires disconnected from terminals.
I did seem to lose one leg and that was the one from the timer as best as I could determine from schematic and wire tracing.
I've ordered the timer and we'll see if it is the problem.
Fingers crossed.

Good luck! I'm curious to see if that fixes it.



Warm regards
