Whirlpool accudry YWED9050XW2
« on: November 13, 2019, 09:56:40 PM »

So our dryer has decided to stop making heat!
I've changed thermistor which produces around 11 ohms I've changed thermal fuse which has continuity.
I've checked the high temp cut offs which all have continuity and also the heating element has continuity!
I dont know what else to check!
Anyone have any ideas ?
Thanks in advance!!

Have you checked the power?

Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times. Sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
Check the voltage at the wall receptacle
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
Do this with the heater off and on.
Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!
