Used wiring diagram in back of machine control head. UNPLUG DRYER! Removed panel off control head and motor access cover at bottom of dryer. Tested door switch continuity first, then continuity from control timer to motor. Found open circuit on white wire. Opened top of machine (pops up at front) and found thermal limiter on back of machine was burned and caused open circuit. It's a little awkward to get to the screws with the drum in place. Use a 30º angle ratching 1/4" ratchet wrench with a magnetic #2 phillips bit.
