New Dryer not Starting. Electrical issue?
My parents just got a brand new dryer, not having ever used one before (they come from a country where everyone air dries thier clothes). Before we get started, lets rule out the obvious issues. The cord is installed properly, the door switch is fine, and the thermal fuse has been checked. The outlet has also been changed.
I tested the voltage, going into the dryer, and it looks like hot - neutral gets 250v, hot - hot gets 250v, and hot - neutral gets 0v on a multimeter. When testing the outlet itself, it looks like the hot - hot gets 250v. While both hot -neutral gets around 75v… i was wondering if there's anything obvious a DIYer can do, or if I need to call an electrician.
Its ironic because I work in power distribution, but cant figure any of this stuff out with the wiring. Any help is much appreciated!
