the repair manual for the above appliance instructs you to measure for "VOLTAGE DROP" between neutral and the hot side of a part. If its 120v then its this part if its zero then it's that part.

What do they mean by testing for voltage drop?

One method is to have an appliance plugged into the bottom of a duplex receptacle and a volt meter plugged into the top.
As the appliance starts, check the "voltage-drop", if greater than 10%  (108) V on 120V.
