repairguy : Can you please tell me what the unit is doing now?
Customer: any idea what is going with thisdryer?
repairguy : Will the dryer do anything right now?
Customer: nothing
repairguy : When you hit start it just sits correctly
repairguy : Do you have a volt meter
Customer: when iturn the timer on there is no response from the dryer
repairguy : do you have a meter to check voltage
Customer: no
repairguy : L1 goes straight to the timer, so I would be pretty sure the voltage is there
repairguy : The only part you have left in the circuit is the timer
repairguy : Do you have access to a timer?
Customer: i would have to order one
repairguy : Im looking at the wiring diagram and the voltage for the motor comes from the timer and directly from the terminal block. You are looking at a new timer my friend.
Customer: thats what i thought i believe it is the possible thing left that i have not replaced
repairguy : other than a cycling thermostat, which will not stop the motor that is about it, unless you just have a bad wire or something unusual like that.
Customer: thanks for your advice would like to be able to let you know if the timer was the problem
repairguy : Even after you do the rating today, you can come back to the thread and ask me anything about this unit and I will help\
