Further suspect is that the ohm rating doesn't indicate the thousand range, where it does indicate such in other places on the schematic. Is that likely an oersight/space issue, or would the motor truly give single digit resistance?
For a bit of background, we did a load of laundry that ran normally all the way through the cycle, unloaded it and tried starting it again with a new load, that is when the problem occurred.
Thanks for the help!

Motor should be 2Ω to 4Ω
what type of meter are you using ?
Have you checked the white Thermal Fuse on the Blower Housing ?

I will see if I can get behind the machine to test (or retest) that fuse. I'm not entirely sure where the testing points would be to get an ohm reading off the motor, but it definitely was giving readings in the thousands when he tested it.
Thanks for the quick reply!

The schematic lists the expected ohms to be 2.4-3.8 on the start side, and 2.4-3.6 on the run side. The start side registers at 3.3k and the run side came in at 1.9k
There are no "test points" for these measurements except at the motor switch itself - the best way to test the motor is to look for 120vac being supplied to blue and white wire going in to harness connector at motor, good idea to check voltage(s) at your electrical plug in too; just fer kicks
