How do I check the sensore bar? Should there be continuity between the two connection terminals when the dryer is cold? My dryer will not start when I push the start button. I have checked the door switch, the thermal fuse and the heater element. All three have continuity. There is continuity across the start button when pushed in. What else should I check next? Thank you.

Bailey for Model Number MDE3000AYW Maytag electric dryer

ANSWER Hello Bailey. You place a wet wash cloth across the bars and they read closed for continuity. If all of those parts are good, then it sounds like the motor is bad or the wiring on the unit.
