I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. You could have a voltage problem at the outlet, an open operating thermostat, a failed heating element or a wiring failure that would prevent the dryer from heating. You could also have an open high limit thermostat, a timer contact failure or a failed motor centrifugal switch that would cause this problem. I recommend checking the breakers (or fuses) in your house electrical panel first. The dryer will run if only one of the 120 volt legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the second leg of 120 volt power is missing, then the dryer will not heat.

If the breakers are okay, then I recommend checking the voltage at the outlet using the image in the diagram below. NOTE: You should only check this live outlet voltage yourself if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it using a volt/ohm meter. If the outlet voltage is okay, then I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking the wiring connection on the terminal block on the back of the dryer. Check the continuity through the power cord as well. If these checks are all good, then I recommend removing the back panel of the dryer (with it still unplugged) and checking the heating element and other components in the back of the dryer. To check the heating element, pull one wire off of the component and measure the resistance across the leads of the element. You should measure between 7 and 13 ohms of resistance. If the element is open (measures infinite resistance), then it will need to be replaced.

If the heating element is okay, then you can check the operating thermostat, and the high limit thermostat in a similar manner (measure resistance with the dryer unplugged with one wire removed from the component). The operating thermostat is on the blower housing and the high limit thermostat is on the heater box. Each of these components should measure near zero ohms of resistance (closed). If any component measures open (infinite resistance), then it will need to be replaced.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

This particular dryer does have a broken belt switch so if the belt is broken the motor can't run. I suspect when the belt is replaced the dryer will run. The image below may be helpful to you. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

I can replace the belt No problem But with the belt being broken will that stop the timer from running. It almost appears that there is no electric going to the machine and I know there is juice going to it. So basically can a broken belt shut down the total machine operation

On this model the timer is controled by the even heat control board. If the dryer was working before the belt broke then I'd suggest replace the belt before thinking about replacing the control board.
