ANSWER Hi. There is a timer resistor that needs to measure 4500 ohms cold. If it does not then replace the resister part # WE4M255. The timer motor itself has windings. Remove the timer part # WE4M533 motor wires and measure for resistance. Measure each lead to the metal case of the motor or the timer. If you get 0-ohms then it is shorted creating the timer to continuously run. Thank You.
