Have a Kenmore/Whirlpool electric dryer about 10-15 years old. Ran, but did not heat. Followed your guidelines, checked the power coming in, getting 240V and 120 on the motor. Checked continuity on the fuses and thermostats. Found a thermostat (of course the hardest one to get to) on the metal bracket enclosing the heater coil to be bad. Got a new kit (came with both thermostats) popped it in and it worked. Ran one load of clothes, nice and dry. Put in another load this morning, no heat. Jumped the replaced the new thermostat and the coils heat up.
What can be causing the thermostat to fry?
