Checked all other electrical and mechanical operations and all seemed operational. Removed heating element from unit and checked with VOM. It was OK. Reinstalled and began checking wiring with VOM per the diagram in the control panel cover. Determined that the contacts for the heater in the timer unit had failed. (Open) Temporarily shorted these points on the timer with a strap to make the dryer work. Wife is now happy. Two days later when the timer part arrived, installed and now all is operational. Good for another 10 years.
