I have a Kenmore model 417 Laundry Center, ie dryer stacked on top of a washer with a common control panel. After a load of wash, the dryer wouldn't start. Broke it down and found a bad fusestat (thermal limiter), which I replaced. Vacuumed out a bag full of lint. Put it back together, dryer works fine, but now the washer won't start! I didn't check the washer to see if it was working before I repaired the dryer part. The washer is completely dead. Nothing happens when I pull the on knob.
Have checked the connections many times to make sure that I didn't loosen something during the dryer repair. Checked continuity from the pull-on switch, through the lid lock, through the water level selector, and through the water pressure switch. All seem to be ok, i.e. short when on, open when off. I have 120 V on both sides of the temperature selector switch, which doesn't change when I switch from cold, warm, or hot. However, the water valves never turn on. Any clues to what to try next? Could something else have blown with the dryer thermal limiter?
