MDE2400AYW #2 error code say the thermistor is open or has very high resistance. How are the disgnostics on ths machince, at really pinpointing the problem. The dryer runs but no heat. This is a Samsung made Maytag, I believe. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

If the Thermostat is "open" OR the Controller "thinks" the Thermostat is open, the Dryer won't heat.
You would have to test the resistance of the Thermistor (on the Blower Housing).
AND possibly also at the Controller ...

In the troubleshooting section of the Service Manual it says:

Will not heat (motor runs):

• Open heating element.

• Hi-Limit trips easily or is open.

• Regulating thermostat trips easily or is open.

• Membrane switch open.

• Check Thermistor

What and where is the Membrane switch?

Turned out the thermistor was good bad hi-limit thermo.
Thanks for the help.
