Two things typically cause this either a broken door switch or the rear thermal fuse is bad. Check the door switch actuator and see if it is broken. If that is fine then remove the back panel on the unit and see if the thermal fuse is burned out. If it is check the vent to the outside for any blockages on the unit. CLICK HERE VIDEO part #3392519. If both of those things are good check the power to the unit to make sure you have 240 volts to it and if that is good you would have a failed timer contact.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!
