The 8th click to the right puts you where it beeps.The beep tells you the part has a chance of working.
The ohms reading is specific based on published ohm readings for parts within a plus/minus parameter,and is more accurate.
Your ohms setting does not beep.

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

Hey guys, I fuigured out my multimeter. When the cuircuit is open my meter reads 1.
when the cuircuit is closed my meter reads -.000 pr some other number depending on
the part.

I have checked the heating element, the thermostate , the thermal fuse  and the hi-limit. All check good.
I am going to check the wires in the harness. I will update you when I get done.

Thanks for ALL your help

On the other end of the heatshrink, the wire is no longer white with black stripe, I follow the now orange wire and it leads to the heating element.

Since I am getting no reading from this wire, What do I do? Can I cut open the heatshrink and fix it? Can I use any wire to fix it?


Thanks you for ALL your help!!!   ;D

NO ...
that a 5000 OHM Resistor for the Timer Motor
leave it alone ...

With the Dryer Cycle set for no heat

you chould have 120v AC from each side of each of these devices when measured to chassis (a good ground)

Thermal CutOff
Operating Thermostat  Red/White & Red wires
Hi-Limit Thermostat
Heating Element
