Confusing resistor colours

Hi,

Its been a while since i've had to work with PCB components and currently trying to fix a control board for my washing machine. I've identified that this resistor has blown but cant figure our the colouring on the 3rd band (see attached). It looks like gold but its a different colour to the tolerance band which is definitely gold. My guesses are 1ohm (seems really small) or 200ohm with the first brand actually being red (though really looks like brown to me)

Thanks

Looks pretty bad. Looks like that stripe got cooked. If you try to measure it, what do you see?

The color might become more distinct under sunlight.

Thanks for both of your inputs! I took Delta Prime's suggestion and removed the resistor to take a proper look under better lighting and discovered that the stripe got completely cooked as DiockCappels suggested. Colour was completely burnt off but fortunately still clear on the underside. Looks like its 100ohm!

thanks!

What is the washing machine model number, maybe you can search for the board and get a picture of it ?..

If Gold is the third colour then it's probably 10ohms..
