Hello,
I have tested the drying element for continuity and I’m good there. When cycle is complete i open it and it’s not very warm inside it. Please help have called an appliance repair place wouldn’t come because i did exactly what he would do.
Thanks!!

Most dryer cycles end with a cool-down period. It shouldn't be very warm inside at the end of most cycles.

I don't know what you're saying there. If you had a technician come out they'd fix it. Did you fix it?

Everything is still wet when the cycle is complete. The tech asked what i did to test it and he said if i am getting continuity than he doesn’t know what’s wrong with it.

I'm sure he couldn't tell you what's wrong with it over the phone. He would have to actually come and check it out to determine the cause. That's what appliance repairmen do.

There are lots of things that could contribute to that.

Is it heating at all?

Is the washer spinning water out of the clothes properly?

I think Dan thought this was a Dryer, not a dishwasher.:)

Did you check your tub TCO(Thermal Cut Off)?

Here we go, I knew I remembered I talked about this in another thread to another member with your same model:
Do everything I mentioned in post #2 of that thread and keep us posted.:)

If you're absolutely sure the heating element is heating, then you will need to use Rinse Aid like JET DRY.

LOL, don't feel bad, that's happened to me as well, when I got my error the next day.:)
