I always check various components with power disconnected and remove wires from each component to prevent a GHOST feed.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

removed the wire harness from motor and checked for continuity between the posts 5(red 31) and 4(grey 51) on the motor shows no connection.  Does this mean dead motor?

 :( that's what I was afraid of.
Thank you to everyone that helped.  :thanks:
Now I have to find out what is wrong with the other dryer, hopefully not the same thing.
