maytag washer mod # XXXXX h w e 2 0 0 x w 0 0 sert #h l 1 2 2 3 1 0 4 0 cust was getting e 2 f 3 code .water temp sensor .i took an ohm reading that was supposed to be about 9 ohms atroom temp.on my meter i couldnt get the reading to sit still long enough to get a reading ,jumped fron 3 to 16. is the temp sensor bad?
Thank you .
At room temp is should Ohm out at or around 9.7 k ohms at 87 degrees so if room temp was lower you would be looking at around 12 -13 k
did you have your meter on K ohm scale ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

on my meter it slips between k and m ,so yes i think so

ok so the sensor is good ,
If it is good . Did you Ohm out the heater element ?
All you looking for is continuity ,no specific ohms .
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

i could not find a heater element on this model .the sensor was all by itself. i looked up top and down below ,couldnt find one.did i miss it ?

Well the wire diagram shows it , but the parts breakdown does not show it in the breakdown .

so if no heatier you need to replace the main harness per the tech sheet !
Do you need a part info ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

thats the harness just for the water temp sensor,correct? ans yes i do need the part info.always trying to learn ,many thanks!

No it is the entire harness . no they don't sell just pieces of the harness
