Thank you so much for the article How to Check Continuity with a Ohmmeter. I have had a hard time finding a book that is able to guide a beginner on the proper use of an Ohmmeter, and appreciate the information.

Hi George,

Set the meter range to the X10 scale. You have to check a few parts as listed in one of our previous posts: dryer willnotheat & timer wont turn off

The reference numbers can be different, but here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL LER4634EQ2 | AppliancePartsPros.com, the model number you posted.

Gene.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool dryer Model SGDS800JQ2

THE gas valve coils when check for continuity do the smaller of the two show open?

Can you be more specific on the problem?

What is the complete model number of the oven?
