After scrounging the web I found this site and feel some relief that I will now be able to get to the bottom of the issue with my dryer. It is a little over a year old and just went out of warranty about a month ago. So go figure it stopped drying just as one would expect. I must say up front that Electrolux has underperformed for my liking. We had a washer replaced by them after 5 service calls within the first year. Finger crossed and here to wishful thinking.
So my Electrolux drier has stopped heating and I followed all the advice I could find and performed the continuity tests, etc (tested good). I replaced the suggested parts (Thermostat 3204267 and Thermal Limiter 137032600) both from Repairclinic.com. Needless to say no heat. I located two additional parts that could be the culprits Thermal Limiter 134711400 and Thermistor 134711300 but have no idea how to test any of these parts to see if they actually work. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated and save my sanity.
I tested and retested the heating element and it appears to have the correct resistance across the coils. I can't remember for sure but I want to say around 25 ohms. I did this test first which is what led me to ordering the about mentioned parts. I installed them last night with no joy. Dryer runs but no heat. Continuity test is the same on the coil when the dryer is running or off. Do you think it is still the coil? also any ideas where I can get a repair manual. Thank you!
I did find the manual but really have no idea what I should be looking for. I believe the user guide suggest looking at the "home fuses" I took this to mean the parts I replaced above. I ordered replacement parts and a new coil. I'll update after I get them put in and tested. Thanks!
Did you check your breaker box? Your dryer is 240 volts, so I'd first check your breaker box you will see dual breakers(Usually the all the breakers are marked, Like one would say Range, one would say Water Heater, so one should be marked Dryer), one may be tripped and that will cause a no heat issue.
Thanks for the additional tips Jake!
I will double check the breakers. I guess I over thought the term 'home breakers' and thought it was something in the actual dryer cabinet itself. I believe my breakers for the dryer are bonded together so if one trips they both trip to avoid this confusing issue. Seems to me all roads are pointing to the control board. More investigation this evening. Stayed tuned. Thanks.
All the repair parts showed up. Did one more continuity test since I had good parts to verify against. Check the breaker per your suggestion but this time flipped it completely off and back on. Plugged in dryer and low and behold it worked. The dang breaker the entire time. It looked ok but I guess it wasn't. Not happy with my self or troubleshooting skills at the moment. At least its the end of the day and beer time. Thanks for the help Jake!
