I desperately need your help/advice. I have a Speed Queen Dryer that I purchased new in 2014. Model ADE4BRGS171TWO1. I dry 5 to 6 loads per week, and it has been well cared for. Two weeks ago it just stopped heating. I called my Electrician who loves to troubleshoot any kind of electrical problem. He brought over his equipment and started to work. He has checked out everything on that dryer when it comes to ohms, voltage, connections ect... while having Speed Queens Tech Support on the phone telling him where to place the probes and testing equipment and what the readouts should be. He also tested the voltage from the breaker box to the dryer plug and the dryer cord including all grounds. Everything checked out perfect, but still no heat. The motor runs it's normal speed and spins the drum just fine. Speed Queen said to replace the Timer, Fabric Selector switch, and the Thermal fuse. He did with genuine OEM parts. Still no heat. I had him to go ahead and replace everything else. That included the Cycle thermostat, Limit thermostat, the heating element, and power cord. After replacing all of those parts, I now get delicate or very low heat when the Fabric Selector switch is set to "Regular" and the Timer is on "Timed Dry". That setting is the only way I get any heat. He called Speed Queen back. They said to change out again the Timer and the Thermal fuse. We took them back to the appliance parts store and exchanged them. After installing the second timer and thermal fuse, all readings and voltage checked out perfect according to Speed Queen Tech Support. I don't know where to go from here. Everything has been changed out except for the wiring harness and the main motor. I welcome any advice or tell me if there is something that has been overlooked.

Post this over on our sister site Automatic Washer! On that site are people FAR more experienced than here including John LeFever who has been a SQ warranty repairman for years as well as owning his own repair business. He or the others will know!
