After about 10 minutes of drying the dryer stopped and never started again. I have checked the door switch, safety switch and start button by continuity and shorting them. The timer runs and the end of cycle signal works. I have tested for 120v and 240v at the terminal block inside the dryer. The 3770 ohm resistor checks excat with the ohm meter. I set it on fluff which should eliminate the heating system and no luck. Is this a legitimate way to eliminate the heating system including the high limit, high drum outlet and low drum outlet switches? If it is the motor or motor start switch how should I test them? What else can it be? Any help is appreciated.

Hi

If you look at the exploded parts diagrams on this site you will see that you have thermal devices (thermostats, safety themostats ect) on both the heater coil housing and the blower cover. Have you checked all of these for continuity.

If they are all good, the problem is likely in your motor switch (but could be the motor itself in a machine this old).

Let us know what you find if you check all of those (or if you have already done so).
