My dryer finished its cycle and the buzzer went off but didn't stop buzzing until I opened the door. The next time I went to use the dryer it wouldn't turn on. It makes a noise like it has power. I checked the start switch with an ohmmeter, it read 60 before I pushed the button and then 30 with it pushed in. The back of the dryer has a burnt smell. Does that sound like a start switch? Thanks.

ANSWER Hello. You will need to test the thermal fuse, and the door switch on the unit. If good, then it sounds like the timer is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
