Does it close when it gets hot? It measures 75k ohms at room temp.
The thermistor will get lower in resistance as the temperature gets higher. The inlet control should not read a open circuit but will have resistance reading. You can check the tech sheet in the unit to see what the resistance values should be.
My resistance shows 97.4.... the other thermal fuses show continuity... where do I go from here... nothing but the front panel lights work... where do I go from here... out of a dryer for a week and a half...this shouldnt be this hard... but alas..!!! lol Help.. :)
Answer Hello Greg. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. If all is good, then either the motor or the main power board WE4M488 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
