are you using timed dry or automatic?

Here's a picture of the meter - can you tell me what to set the dial to?
I put a probe on the black wire terminal, in the upper left hand side of the picture below, and I put the other one on the other black terminal in the upper right hand side of the picture. I didn't get a reading.
Then I kept one of the probes on the left terminal and moved the other probe to the green ground. Then I got a reading of +12 which I assume is 120 volts. I moved the probe to the right terminal while keeping the other probe on the green ground and again got a reading of +12.
The dryer was running when I did my test. What does this mean?
good picture thanks , this means the timer contacts inside he timer are bad, you will need to replace the timer, you should get 120 volts. did you have the dryer running? it has to be running to get the reading.
Hi Bryan, I need a bit more help. I bought a timer on ebay and the contacts don't line up the same. I don't know if I got the wrong part of not because aside from a few contacts - the part looks identical to my original. The part number on the box is(NNN) NNN-NNNNand the number on the part is(NNN) NNN-NNNNquot;B". The number on the part you sent me the link to is(NNN) NNN-NNNNquot;A". The ebay seller of the part is not returning my emails. Do I have the wrong part or do I need to modify the connection?
Later this morning I will take pictures of each of them and show you. I may just be missing something simple. I just expected them to be plug and play.
