How can I be sure that the motor is bad? I've done the resistance measurements and they are a little low, (2 ohms rather than 2.3-3.6), but I expected them to be high if the motor had failed. I measured the resistance from P1-3 to P1-4 at 2.1 ohms, which makes sense to me given the wiring diagram. However, the tech sheet states that if the resistance is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, "replace the machine control electronics." Should I replace the motor or the control board? If I have to replace both I'll just buy a new dryer! Thanks, Jim

ANSWER Hello Jim, In light of the statement, " if the resistance is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, replace the machine control", I would replace the electronic control 280087. The tech. sheet will be right 98% of the time.
