From the description and problem you have I suspect the motor has failed. If the dryer heats when the motor is not running then the motor switch has most likely failed. Dryers are designed not to heat if the motor is not running. The heating circuit is routed through the motor switch and the switch should be open if the motor is not running. The dryer has some age and the motor is about $126 dollars so replacement might be a better option than repair. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional questions for further assistance.

Yes. Each wire that goes to that element should be providing 110 volts when the dryer is running in a heated cycle. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

A:

When you hook the dryer up to 110 volts, the dryer motor apparently runs because it is getting that proper 110 volts of power that it need and the circuit is complete to the neutral connection. The 2nd leg of 110 volt power to complete the 220 volts must have an opposite phase from the 1st leg of 110 volt power that is powering the motor and supplying the heating element with 110 volts. You may have a voltage supply problem, a wiring connection problem on the terminal block or a problem with the neutral connection since the motor won't run when you connection the dryer to 220 volts. I do not have the installation guide or other technical information on this dryer that indicates how you can connect the dryer to 110 volts and have the heating element work. You may be able to check the above issues. When you are checking the voltage at the heating element, you will normally detect voltage through the element if you do not connect the wire that supplies the opposite leg of power. I recommend that you use extreme caution when checking live voltage. These tips may help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details. We will help you all that we can considering the limited technical information that we have on this older dryer.
