For Whirlpool Timer (Part Number: AP2976173)

My dryer is running but producing no heat. I've tested: thermal fuse (continuity across terminals) hi-limit thermostat (ditto) thermal cut off (ditto) dryer cycling thermostat (continuity across large terminals, small terminals are open) heating element (continuity, about 9.6 ohms resistance) power at the dryer (120V each side, 240V both) I'm out of ideas but was wondering if a bad timer would cause problems for the dryer producing heat. There were a couple times this week that the dryer seemed to run WAY longer than I thought the timer was set (i.e., 2 hours instead of 1 hour). I couldn't reproduce the problem with the timer running long in any of the cycles. Thanks for any advice! John

ANSWER Hello John. Yes, the timer 3976568 can prevent the dryer from heating if it does not send power to the element. Hope this helps.
