Model #LG7681XSW2 My dryer is 22 years old and it's taking a long time to dry. It does heat up though. The resistance of the heater on the operating thermostat is low at 3.5 Kohms. According to two videos I have (off the internet) the heater resistance should be between 4.6 Kohms and 8.6 Kohms (6.7 Kohms on a different video). Will that be enough voltage to cause the heater to heat up the operating thermostat correctly? I did check the operating thermostat with my heat gun. It reads 0 ohms until it gets ouchy hot, then it opens up.
