About 6-months ago I worked on this dryer that was 'dead' and my notes indicate that I replaced a thermister P/N 3072080 and they dryer worked just fine in tell this week.
The customer called this week and it went 'dead' again this week. I went back today and tested all limits and fuses. I tested this same part and there was no continuity between terminals. Should there be continuity on this part, my thought is yes because its a thermister, right?
I jumped the wires and tested the unit again and it still was 'dead'
Would jumping them allow the unit to run?
I checked the breaker panel and the unit was turned on at the panel. I was unable to test for 240-volt at the terminal block because it will require serious effort to remove washer, then dryer to access back side.
Do these thermisters 'go bad' or will they shut down a unit?
