Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Have you tested the thermal fuse on the blower housing ?

And with the unit set and the door closed does the timer advance/ count down?
