I accidently shorted out one of the live sides of the cord to the dryer body. Now the dryer will not start. Even the drum light does not go on. I have checked all the thermostats and the thermo fuse for continuity and they all pass. The door switch is also OK. There however does not seem to be continuity when I test the resister that is attached to the timer. Will replacing the timer fix the problem?
Answer Wilbert, The resistor assembly 31001484 doesn't really affect the start or running of the dryer, it's more involved in the heater and timer motor circuits. You should be able to read 3.7 K ohms resistance across the resistor, if not then it needs to be replaced. As for the timer 31001513 , not yet. It sounds more like you have lost L1 power(120 VAC) to,or in the dryer. You need to start at the outlet, check for 220-240 VAC, then check across the outside terminals of the terminal block on the back of the dryer. Then check the wiring from the terminal block to the motor and up into the control panel.
