In Topic: Kenmore 110.86874800 Elec Dryer does not heat or turn off

Well I extracted the element without testing impedance, but the problem is obvious. There's a break in the element.

Are the timer issues likely to clear up with replacement of just the heating element?

Glad I know what to do now, and can service this myself. Thanks everyone for the help.

The house breaker for the dryer wasn't tripped, but I flipped and reset it anyway.

The terminal block read 125.7 on the 120V line and 251.8 on the 240V line.

I checked both the terminal ends, as well as the coil itself on the bottom of the heating element for continuity. There was none. I guess this means the element is bad and the solution from here is pretty straight forward?

There is a schematic on the back of the dryer. Do these images help?

Duplicated with close ups for readability.

Thanks for your time.
