Speaking of NTC sensors. My old ( like ~20 years old) Washing machine's NTC thermistor is suspiciously faulty. I want to replace it with a variable pot resistor. I read 5 Volts DC on the open circuited NTC terminals of the Motherboard of the washing machine. This voltage goes down to 4.3 V when a 10k Ohm resistor is connected instead of NTC.You have bypassed a safety mechanism. Anything bad that happens is now on your shoulders, not mine. Particularly, if there is the potential for fire, I would not do what you have done nor condone it.
If I open circuit a NTC sensor will the machine heat the water unboundedly or not heat it at all? There should be a way to trick the machine into thinking it needs to heat the water. At least for a while, right?
