lg dryer dle 5977w has code 10 kohms across thermister.spec says 10 ohms.purchased new thermister.has 10kohms also.what is correct spec for thermister?
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

~10k ohms is the correct resistance of the thermistor at room temperature, so the thermistor isn't hte problem. That being said, if the thermistor checks good you'll need to follow the wires back up to the control board and make sure there are no breaks in the wire for whatever reason. If the wires check good, then the control board itself would need to be replaced because it's not reading the thermistor properly.
