Last week our dryer stopped drying. No heat. Assuming it was the heating element...I pulled the back and removed the element. Visually it looked ok. Multi-meter confirmed it was good. Reinstalled and watched a few youtube videos to get other suggestions. So I ended up checking voltage at the outlet. Timer. Thermostat. I think there was something else too. All ok. Vent was clear and seemed to be blowing an appropriate amount of air from the vent. Put it all back together feeling defeated and plugged it back in and started it up just because and it had heat! So...I assume either something was lose or had lost contact and I corrected it or something was broken and by me messing with it I caused the faulty part to "fix itself". Well...today heat is out again. I haven't pulled the dryer out to check everything again...but assuming I do and all checks out ok...is there any other thing that might be wrong to cause the heat to go out that maybe I didn't check?
