Dryer will run in auto sense mode but element will not turn on. It will run properly in high and low heat settings but occasionally when timer reaches off position the element will turn off but the motor won't. Is this a timer issue. Thanks
ANSWER Hello Bobby,
Try testing T to F and then T to X. You will be looking for either an open connection or, when the timer is spun around to close the contacts, connection with no resistance on both of these connections. If you show partial connection, the contacts are burned and sticking sometimes and not making connection sometimes. This would indicate a timer issue. The other thing that would fall into play is a operating (cycling) thermostat that has contacts that are burned.
