ACTechGuy, that link to the manual doesn't work any more. Can you resolve, plz? I would very much like to add that manual to my collection - if I don't already have it.

We do have voltage to all components. Thermal switch is OK, door switch functional, confirmed continuity on the push-to-start switch.


But, here is where reality deviates from the schematic. I have 2 white/red wires supplying 120VAC to the switch, they are plugged into a ganged terminal. I also have a black wire, and also a plug for 2 tan wires. When I push the start button, voltage on the white/red pair drops to zero.


Tech sheet shows one white wire, one white/red, coming in, and one black on the other side.

You're probably wondering why I haven't done that already, considering it's a basic diagnostic, listed third in the Samurai's Dryer Repair FAQ's.


Well. It so happens I am in a fragile emotional state right now. Yeah. That's it. Tired and emotional.


So no snickering or making mock.


Thanks, Kurtius, I will do that as soon as I sober u.....Er, I mean, recover from my inner pain and distress.

Learn something every day around here - I never knew there was a "current" vs "voltage" type of switch.

Changing out one of these switches has to be the easiest $80 in the business, if you don't count flipping on a circuit breaker. But that's only $60, so still.
