If Timer IS Getting Power

In reply to Mary ......check the circuit breaker by doug seibert on February 28th, 2003 11:44 AM [Go to top of thread]

If the timer is getting power (hence the ticking), a blown fuse or tripped breaker is not likely to be the problem as both the timer's motor and the dryer's main motor are usually on the same side of the power supply. If one is getting power, the other should too.

It could be that there is an internal thermal fuse that has blown and needs to be replaced. I wonder if the OP opened the dryer door just previous to the dryer stopping to function?

Some makes and models also have a 'beld break switch' that will stop power to the motor should the belt break or come off.
