OK, thermal switch on heater is OK on continuity. Also checked push-button 'on' switch. Also OK on continuity when pressed. Door switch OK on continuity when pressed.
Looked at the Maytag Dryer service manual posted on AJ, and on page 3-21 it talks about a 160 degree thermostat. I removed the thermostat cover on the front of the dryer, and heve checked continuity across the black and purple wires (I assume that's what BK and PU are?), and on my digital meter I am not getting total continuity. It reads 10.7, not the typical .001 or .002. I am thinking that's telling me I have an issue? The manual says, "no continuity, replace"
