    Default DE09-US1 replaced heating element, but still no heat

    Any help would be appreciated. We lost heat on the front load DE09 and I checked the thermostats with a multimeter. They all checked out okay. I found the heating element was severed, so I replaced it today. Put the dryer back together, but still no heat. I don't know what to look for next. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Don't over-look the obvious. Make sure that both legs of the power supply (220V) are present. Just because the motor runs does not mean there's 220 (or whatever the supplied voltage is in your area)
    Make sure you have full voltage to the dryer. It's actually somewhat common for people to not check this. The logic is that if the motor runs, the breaker or fuse must be ok. In some cases when the element shorts out, it will trip only one side of the breaker or fuse. The motor will still work if only one side of the line is open. Many breakers are "double pole" types with two separate breakers. Turn the breaker to OFF and then back on again. If you have cartridge type fuses, you need to check both of them for continuity.
    If you find that you have full voltage to the dryer, then it's possible either the heat contact in the timer or the heat contact in the motor switch is open.
    Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
