I have 2 1/2 years old electric front load dryer. The other day, I found out that it was running but there was no heat.
My husband checked these...

1. if the dryer got full 240 volts.
2. heating element - I heard its resistance should be between 5-30 . it was in that range
3. thermostats -I don't know which one is what but there were two so we checked both and they were closed.

It doesn't show any code or chime.
What is wrong with it?

Please help. I'm tiring of hanging laundry.

Thank you!

Could be a bad control or Motor Switch/Wiring - need to check for 240 volts at element

set Dryer to run a no heat Air-Fluff Cycle
On the Controller Board Heater Relay (lower left corner)
Measure voltage from the Black wire to chassis (ground)
and then from the Blue wire to chassis (ground)
should be
120v on each of the wires when running in a no heat Cycle
Then run a Timed Dry heat Cycle.
Then measure the voltage across the Black to Blue wires.
There should be
0v when running in a normal heat Cycle.

Thanks for the reply - very helpful!

If the relay is bad do I need to replace the whole control board?
