My dryer will start and run ok, but the timer will not run, it just stays where you set it and runs continuously. Am I right to assume this is the timer motor gone bad, or should I check a few more things before ordering a new timer?

My dryer cuts off after a few minutes of running. You can start it back up again without having to wait for it to cool down. I've cleaned the vent and disconnected it. still having problem. Then I removed the vent chute from the back and cleaned it out. problem still exists. I've tested the cycle t-stat on the blower chute. It ohms out at zero for the red wires which are the bigger wires. The purple wire which are the smaller wires ohm out at 7.3 ohms. according to the other guy on the chat line is should have some resistance. I've tested the hi-limit and the thermal cut -off switches, on the heater chute, also and they zero out. I've checked the door switch just in case but it was at zero ohms also. Any other ideas on what the problem could be? While typing this I changed the setting of the temp switch to medium instead of high and it's staying running. Could it be the temp switch or is it a thermostat going bad? Thanks Jeff

My electric dryer stopped in mid cycle. It seems that the start switch is working fine but I do not have a manual for the dryer so I trouble shoot the system. Any suggestions?

My dryer will not start at all. I have checked all of the switches, thermal cutoffs, thermostats and wiring. I believe it might be the timer. I have checked between terminals T and W. According to the schematic this should be the contact that supplies power to the start circuit for the motor. It ohms out at around 2K ohms. Being a contact I would think that it would be much less. I ohmed the drive motor start circuit and it was 2.6 ohms. (in tolerance according to schematics). Is it a safe bet that the timer needs to be replaced? Can I jumper the tan wire from the "T" terminal to the white wire from the "W" terminal to see if the motor will run? I put a jumper on these wires and it ohms out at 3 ohms. I wasn't sure if that was enough to put power to or if 3 ohms would effectively be a short.

I have replaced the heating element, thermal fuse,2 themostat-fix and dryer will still not heat. What else could be the problem? Would it be the timer switch?
