Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.
did you open the control and check the wiring at the timer ?
The control was already opened. I thought it was a starter switch problem because the dryer stopped working but after I unplugged the dryer then checked the starter switch, it started to work again.
Could that have been the cause of the smell or is there something else I need to look at which caused the timer to blow?
I just checked the motor and it turns easy. I forgot to mention that before I plugged the dryer back in, I turned the dial to start the dryer but I did not press the start button. The timer sparked as soon as I plugged the dryer back into the socket. Could the thermal fuse be the issue?
The machine is working again. I think the cause of the spark was one of the wires probe from the timer was touching the metal part of the dryer. I noticed a burned(black mark). near the timer. I will continue to finish changing the drum rollers and idler pulley. Hopefully, this will resolve my noise and smell problem. thanks so much for your assistance.
thats great, if you need more assistance you have 30 days after you accept to ask additional questions, thanks Bryan
