Question and Answers

Q:

dryer model # 11062066101 no heat all vents are clean and power is good how to troubleshoot (electric dryer)

A:

That heater circuit in your dryer is traced in red on the wiring diagram in the first image below.

I recommend that you check begin the troubleshooting by checking the voltage supply to the dryer. The dryer motor will run if only the L1 leg of 240 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If that second L2 (120 volt) leg of power is missing, the dryer will not heat. Check your house circuit breakers or house fuses first. If you find no problems there, I recommend that you carefully check the voltage at the dryer outlet using a volt/ohm meter. The second image shows the voltage that you should measure at the outlet. NOTE: You should only check that live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when making that live voltage check .

If the outlet is okay, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the third image. Check the resistance of the heating element as shown in this brief repair video: Dryer Element Testing . That element should measure between 7 and 13 ohms of resistance. If it is bad, it will need to be replaced. If that element is okay, you can check the high limit thermostat and the thermal cut-off fuse for continuity.

If all of those components are okay, then you could have a problem with the heater relay on that control board or with the thermistor (temperature sensor). You can check that thermistor for resistance. It is shown in that third image. You may need to remove the lint duct assembly as shown in the 4th image to access that component. If that thermistor is okay, you could bypass that heater relay for a brief test. The 5th image shows how to open the console to access that control board. Connect the wires going to and from that heater relay on the control board together. Tape them with electrical tape to prevent them from shorting to the metal cabinet or control board. Reassemble the dryer and briefly start it to see if the element heats. If it does, then you will probably need to replace that control board if you found no problems with the thermistor or that thermistor circuit. You may want to check that thermistor circuit from the control board to rule out a wire harness problem before replacing that control board.

NOTE: Do not continue to operate that dryer with the heater relay bypassed. Unplug the dryer and restore that wiring to the original configuration following that brief test.
