Whirlpool Electric Dryer.


The timer button and the heating itself is not working. Dryer spins but that's it.

Figured I'd ask here before I go tearing into it.

Thanks.

Approach the problems/symptoms individually
No heat is usually a thermal overload... open the rear, find the control, check continuity.
(that open circuit may also be why the timer isn't running)

It was the breaker, not stabbed in all the way. Didn't have 240 across both legs, only 36 on one and 124 on the other.

She's working. Thanks.
