If the unit shows an overheat issue and the venting and filter are clear, you likely have an exhaust thermistor that will need to be replaced. What exactly is it doing? Also, I will need the complete model number from the dryer's tag, please.
Thank you! What exactly is it doing?
The control is not getting an in range reading from the thermistor or the control is faulty. Can you measure the sensor resistance with a test meter at the board?
There may be an issue with the wiring between the sensor and control or the control is faulty.
Yes, it is the board if the wiring is good from the sensor. Do you have a meter to test the sensor resistance?
There are two wires on the X11-2 connector on the board. Disconnect the connector from the board and measure the resistance between those two wires. It should be about 10k ohms.
It is not the sensor. We would be testing the wiring harness with that test. The wiring harness may have an issue that is causing the resistance to change by the time it gets to the board.
You bet, thank you.
