Help please!! I recently installed a GE Dryer model number DVL223EB4WW but i can't get it to heat at all. I've checked the circuit breakers as well as the exhaust vent, but nothing has worked. I am a little worried that the outlet is not the right specifications as I noticed that while it was marked at 30 amps, it was also marked 126/250V whereas my dryer is supposed to run 208/240V according to the owner's manual. Would this difference in voltage be enough to keep the dryer from heating? Or is something else the matter? If I need to check the heating element or the fuses, where are those located? Thanks very much for any help you can give me.

You need to use your multimeter and measure the voltages at the dryer outlet. This page explains what you're looking for.
