electric dryer won't start
Model Number: PYET244AYW Brand:
1 - 5 years
Door switch works. Thermostat above heating element is closed (continuity test).
Suspect the thermostat in front near dryer duct. It has four terminals. One pair are closed but the other pair show resistance ~ 3 Ohms. My thermostat has 120 V written on it while the new one that I tried replacing it with had 240 on it. All the other numbers were the same. It didn't fix the problem and I don't know if this voltage difference is significant.
Not sure where all the thermostats are. Are there others that I could test or is there a fuse?
I see something in my circuit diagram that says motor protector. It looks like I need to remove the drum to get at it.
I tried replacing the timer, but that did not fix the problem.
