If you set the time to any cycle and have the door closed does the timer advance?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 4 months ago

Have you tested the terminal block where the cord attaches to the dryer for the proper voltage?

Because the time should be advancing if you have the proper voltage to the dryer ,the timer set on any cycle and the door closed/

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
nothing happens when start button is pushed door open or closed there is juice everywhere but the machine acts as though it where unplugged always no noise no clicks no vibration under any and all circumstances. whith out testers you would think its unplugged but testers say juice is everywhere
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 4 months ago

ok let`s unplug the unit and remove the wires off of the push to start switch and ohm out the switch and press the push to start switch and tell me what you get?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I turned off the gas some time ago just for safety
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 4 months ago

Yea not worried about the gas right now just trying to get the drive motor to come on .

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
OK again Im Not good with the multi meter but I unplugged the machine unhooked the wires to the start switch and did continuity its positive then I switched to ohms 200 pressed start and got a reading of 00.2 is this what you were looking for
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 4 months ago

ok IF you have 120 volts on the white wire on the start switch and you press the start switch the dryer should start .

I suspect the issue is either your meter or the way you are using it .

I suggest you can in an expert to have them look at the unit!
