For Whirlpool Dryer Control Board (Part Number: AP4046791)

Answer or Comment

Symptom is that the dryer starts, then stops within 10 seconds. I completely disassembled the unit and cleaned the components. Didn't notice any visible damage. Issue may be caused by thermal limit sw and or Control Panel. So I have two questions: 1. Any way to check the limit sw with an ohmmeter before spending 130.00+ on a Control Panel? 2. Any other causes for this symptom? Thank you for your help, GH

ANSWER GH, You will want to do a resistance check on the thermistor of unit. On connector PS5 of the control board check from Pin 1 to Pin 11 and should have a resitance reading of approximately 10,000 ohms at room temperature. On the same connector you would do a continuity check on the sensor bars Pin 3 and Pin 7 of the PS5 connector. It should read open. When you put a piece of metal or something wet it should read a closed circuit. If these test ok then you will need to replace the control board. If they fail then replace the component. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
