Okay, I've gotten us lost somewhere apparently. I have power. I can power on the dryer just fine. The heating element, however, never heats. It'll run cold all day long. It's not a core power issue. Thus it doesn't involve the circuit breaker or any of the other power-related items I'm pretty sure.
In the picture you'll see the fuse at the top of the bottom-left. That black spot is from me last time. My hands were filthy and I got a spot of grease on it that wouldn't come off. This has continuity. Thus I believe it's okay.
Below that is the bias thermostat. As noted I'm not sure what it should read. The red pair reads continuity. The purple pair reads 7.
Then on the upper right we have the thermal cut-off thermostat. It reads continuity.
On the bottom right we have the high-limit thermostat and it reads continuity.
IMMEDIATELY below that we have the connectors for the heating element itself (which I didn't realize at first) and there's no continuity there but I don't believe there should be.
Another item I'm confused by is the parts list. The list includes all of these things plus one. Part number AP3094244
includes one thermal cut-off (309 degrees) and one high-limit thermostat (250 degrees). This should be both of the thermostats on the right of the picture. The bias/cycling thermostat is part number AP3131939
The fuse is AP3132867
. However, then on the diagram it shows another part number for where the high-limit thermostat goes and calls this a Thermostat, Fixed - Dryer High-Limit and uses part number AP3131941
Given the information provided does anyone know why I'm running cold?
