For Whirlpool Dryer Drive Motor (Part Number: AP3094233)

My dryer currently won't run. all the diagnostic checks look good. the door switch and thermal switch check out. I ended up going back to my dryer technical sheet and following all the steps from the beginning to see what my problem might be. Everything checked out fine until I got to the motor circuit test. After struggling to find the right terminals to test I think I finally found them and showed infinite resistance on both the main and start motor circuit. I assume the motor is dead and needs to be replaced but I am not sure. I find it odd that both circuits would be blown at the same time. Is that normal or am I not checking out the motor properly? Any help is appreciated.

ANSWER Jim, With your multi meter set at the lowest resistance setting (R1 orR2) you should read 2.4 to 3.6 ohms resistance from the blue wire on back and white/orange wire (run winding). You should have the same resistance reading between the blue wire and the purple wire (start winding). It is possible to damage both windings, but that's pretty rare.
