Q:

No heat. What can I do? TEDS780JQ0 Estate Electric dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Estate Dryer model number TEDS780JQ0.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

You have replaced the heating element and thermostat.   Which thermostats did you replace.   There are the ones on the heating element and there is a thermostat and a thermal fuse behind the blower.   You probably just need to replace the fuse and if you have a ohmmeter you can take a look to verify weather  you need one or both parts.   I have a link on the bottom to show you the parts.   

You have the heating element as link number 17.
The thermostats/thermal cut off switch as key 9 and 15.
Behind the blower fan area is Thermal fuse key number 7 and another thermostat as key number 8.

The air flow is not a problem. Both thermostats on the heating element (key #9 & #15) checked good with the ohmmeter as well as the fuse (key #7). I already replaced the thermostat on the blower, key #8. The reason I replaced this was because there are 2 purple wires, one checked 64 volts, the other 0. After I replaced it, the new one checked the same. While following the wires it appears that the one reading zero is split into 2 wires with one going to the ground on the main power supply and the other becomes a green wire that appears to be a ground on the dryer itself. I'm no electrician, but it seems to make sense that the purple wire would read 0. Am I wrong in thinking that? If not, I'm not sure how else to trouble shoot it at this point. Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
