Have you check for 240 volts to the dryer ?
The timer will not advance nor will the dryer heat with out 240 volts ,but it will tumble with just 120 volts .
You can also try turning the breaker off then back on and then try running the dryer to see if it will heat if you have no way to test for voltage at the terminal block in the rear of the dryer.
Yes there is 240.
And you have checked it with a meter to the dryer?
if you have 240 to the dryer the timer would be running as long as the dryer motor is running!
yes...there is 240 inside the dryer.
where the power cord connects inside the dryer
yes and no heat
then lets check the timer contacts at BK and TM with the dryer running ?
looking for 240 volts A/C
yes there is 240 between bk---tm.
and the timer is still not advancing ?
If it is not advancing you have a bad timer !!
Is it stll also not heating ?
not advancing...no heat
so you have two issues then , Abad timer
and are you able to remove the lower rear panel and check voltage to the heating element?
240 at the heater element while running
so you have a bad timer and a bad heating element then!
DO you need a link to the parts ?
no thank you.
ok good luck then .
The timer is approx $100 and the heating element is around $70.00
