Answers :

You are probably missing one leg of your 220 at the plug or screw terminal. BE CAREFUL THE VOLTAGE CAN HURT YOU. One leg is used for lights, panel power. Both legs together give 220vac for heating element power. Remove power plug from wall...then check the wall outlet for 220 vac. / I \ from outside to inside conductor should be 120 vac on both sides ....from outside to outside conductor should be 220 vac. If you have the voltage at the wall outlet ...check behind the plate where power cord is attached to dryer. Sometimes I have found a loose screw terminal would actually create enough heat to burn and make a bad electrical connection. check this out and let me know how it goes.
