When the door is opened during a drying cycle, the motor stops but the heating element does not turn off - it continues to heat - until we manually move the timer to off - the element checks out OK.
What is causing this -the motor - the timer?.
ANSWER Hello Bob. It sounds like the element is grounded and is touching metal. If so, replace the element in the unit.
