Control Thermistor.. Can you wire them backwards?
« on: January 08, 2017, 01:59:14 AM »

Greeting,
I have a Frigidaire fixed washer dryer combo, FFLE2022MW0. The control thermistor on the dryer exhaust tube has two wires, one purple and one tan in color.
Question can you reverse those or does it matter. I see no marking on the control thermistor itself that shows which electrical wire goes where.

Also the thermal limiter, can you cross those wires or not. Both wires are black in color?

thanks,
Brad

Hi, resistors are bidirectional. reversible,
Thermistors and limiters are resistors.

Sorry about my sloppy reply. Yes, you can hook up the thermistor either way. That goes for both of them.

thanks redrock for the comments. I was just double checking. Learned quite a bit this last week about dryer repair and troubleshooting.
