RADIOGEEK97 is on a distinguished road
Default more findings

well I had a chance to take the dryier appart and found a few things. First off i put the unit into self test and the switches timer seem to be ok. I checked the thermal fuses (no opens) and the heating element (good continuity no shorts). I did find 48vdc on one of the pink wires on the motor relay. The other pink wire showed no voltage even if i pressed the button. What I did find wrong is the thermistor(whirlpool pn 3976615) is OPEN no continuity. What i then did is jump the thermistor to see if the unit worked, BUT it still only spun with the start button depressed.
Is it possible to have a bad thermistor and even heat board? I suppose yes but i am looking for any flaws in my diagnostic procedures.? thanks in advance for any help!!
