I would appreciate any assistance.

I just torn down my LG, replacing the heater assembly, and the dryer exhaust air thermostat. Everything went pretty smooth. So I got it all back together, and plugged it in. The unit will turn on, but when i try and engage the dryer in a cycle, I hear some clicks from the top left hand corner, and nothing happens.

I took the dryer apart again, and checked all the connections thinking I maybe inadvertently unseated something, but found nothing. Checked the harness at the top left hand corner thinking maybe I skiffed a wire, but still found nothing.

Any ideas?

Well after a good deal of troubleshooting I found it to be the dryer exhaust air thermostat. I swapped the one I pulled out back in and it worked just fine. I can get continuity on the one I had, but not the replacement. What is the proper way to test these? Thanks for your time!
