Bosch WTA3510 dryer won't start

10 May 2013 - 12:07 AM

So, I've run the test programs in the "dryer training program" document I found here, with interesting results.  Indicating lights, cycle buttons, and sensor conductance all run successfully.  Pump, motor, heater, and NTCs test doesn't run.  Start light stops blinking and eventually starts blinking again, but no drum rotation or noise of any kind.    NTC R3 (which seems to be a grey not white connector) measures open, and pins 1-3 of the motor is 56ohms (1-2 and 2-3 are ~26 ohms).  Is the open thermistor enough to prevent the test program from running?  Also, I thought that motors usually failed as a short circuit rather than an increase in resistance???  Thoughts??


Thanks in advance!!!
