3 out of 4 people found this instruction helpful

Since the timer was working, I opened the front of the dryer and checked the two thermostats and the resistance of the heating element. All of these parts checked out, so I opened the control panel. I found a coroded wire connector that had overheated, melted the insulation back some and broke off. The terminal it was connected to on the timer was also melted and damaged. Replaced the timer, wire and connectors.
