ELECTRIC DRYER:
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Remove the toe panel to access the thermal
components.
3. Using an ohmmeter and referring to the wiring
diagram, measure the resistance from the red
wire terminal at the thermal cut-off to the red
wire terminal at the heater.
If the resistance is about 10 , go to step 5.
If an open circuit is detected, go to step 4.
4. Visually check the wire connections to the
thermal cut-off, high limit thermostat, and heater.
If connections look good, check for continuity
across each of these components.
Replace the heater if it is electrically open.
Replace both the thermal cut-off and high limit
thermostat if either one is electrically open.
