Estate Dryer(model#IED4400SQ0) made by Whirlpool. Not Heating, did an ohm test for continuity on the heating element, found no continuity. Installed new heating element, worked great!
Always unplug the dryer before doing a ohm test for continuity!
Here’s the heating element for this model:
Manufacturer’s Number: 279838
Amana Refrigertor(model#BC20HW): Not cooling properly. Turned the defrost timer into the defrost cycle, the defrost heater came on. Normal defrost cycle is about 20-40 minutes. Waited an hour and it didn’t come out of defrost, so that means the defrost timer is bad.
Here’s the defrost timer for this model:

Ohm tested the defrost thermostat(bi-metal) for continuity while it was still frosty, and found no continuity. That indicates the defrost thermostat(bi-metal) is bad.
