My dryer element burned out and broke. I replaced it. When it burned out it melted the bearing so I replaced it along with the belt. Still does not work. With the door removed and the door switch shorted I can turn the "on" switch and hear the timer motor running in 2 of the 3 heating settings. It goes off when I release the swith. The motor does not turn. The door switch checks out okay and the tow tow thermal switches near the heating element also check out. Will a partially worn out control/timer cause the machine to not work at all? Is there a fuse of some sort I am missing that may have blown when the heating element blew?
This issue sounds more likely to be the blower motor 5303937189 rather than a timer issue. You will want to check to make sure that you are getting power to the blower motor. If you are then the blower motor is faulty and will need to be replaced.
