alexakos posted a topic in DIY Appliance Repair HelpHi. I'm very much an amateur but the dryer is all taken apart now, so there's no going back!When Start is pressed, you hear a hum and drum doesn't turn, and the dryer doesn't go on. So I suspected the motor. At first I swear I saw a PF code briefly. Some people online say the thermistor can cause that error code although I'm not sure why that would be. When I went to diagnostic mode it said F01, which means control board apparently. I did the diagnostics per the tech sheet. The power to the motor on the control board was ok.The thermal fuse was ok.The thermistor had a reading of 16 ohms with a room temp of about 69, which according to the chart I saw means it's bad. It should be 10. It should be 16 at 60 degrees.Per the tech sheet I checked the resistance on the motor and I got a reading of 0 on all three tests: main winding, start winding, and belt switch. Tech sheet says the readings should be somewhere between 3.3-3.6 (main), 2.7-3.0 (start), and from infinity to a few ohms as the pulley arm closes the switch. But I get zero on all 3. Am I doing them wrong? Some sites say the motor should be zero.
