Cord that connects to door switch in dryer no longer starts
I've had a Whirlpool dryer for 17 years and it worked fine until it recently stopped working. It was plugged in, the door was shut properly, and the power outlet works when I plug in something else into it. Now it doesn't run at all. No turning or heat. I also confirmed continuity between the 2 metal pins on the thermal fuse
I thought the former door switch was the problem because I got a multimeter and last week it detected continuity in the female end that connects to the control board but found no continuity between the pins in the old door switch
I ordered a new door switch from here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlp...
After I finally received the new door switch and confirmed there was continuity between its pins, I just inserted it into the dryer, but it still won't start. I then checked for continuity in the female end that connects to control board but it now no longer has any detected continuity
If this is confusing, I attached some photos: https://imgur.com/a/BMT1sj8
The bottom photo is the female end I'm talking about that no longer has continuity
Did I not correctly check for continuity in the female end? Was I supposed to check the continuity between its pins and the blue and white cords in the very bottom of the first image?
