My GE® Extra-Large 5.7 Cu. Ft. Capacity Electric Dryer will run but won't heat up.?

3 posts in this topic

I have checked the vents, and read some forum and watched some vids.  the heating element i get 12.5 ohms. the safety thermostat, the thermal limiter and the thermostat control and all are reading approx 0.4 or 0.5 ohms. I have not checked the power from the plug yet (didn't know to before i disasembled the dryer) and im not sure if i can do that with the dryer disasembled (top, front, drum off, wires unpluged inside) If there is nothing else to check inside, then i will put it back together and check the voltage coming from the plug. Other then not heating up, the dryer works fine.
Any help?
