Kenmore Electric dryer, Model series 69821/79821
we wired in a 220 outlet and put a new plug on this dryer we got with our place, tryed the dryer out and it runs but no heat, we had been told that the heating element was bad so we went and replaced that and still no heat, we took both the thermostats to a repair shop and had them tested and were told they were good and that it sounded like a 110/220 problem, like it was running on 110 and not getting 220 to the heater, so we took a multimeter to it and near as we could tell its getting 220 to the heater but its still not heating up? we were told the timer very rarely goes bad by several people but if that happened we wouldn't get the 220 to the heater......is it possible we weren't reading the meter right? reading read between 223 and 237, in that general area, plz help....this is starting to cost alot of money for an old dryer.
