Does it do it on all cycles? Try the dryer on "no heat" cycle.

Thanks for responding Gene.

No heat on any cycle, but I'll check the timer to see if it works on "no heat" cycle. Also, do you know how to check the heat coil and where it's located?

The heating element is #17 on the diagram. You have to remove the rear panel to access it. Remove the wires from the heater terminals and check for continuity between the terminals and each terminal to ground (metal case).

The following article on our forum will explain in detail how to run a continuity test - How To Check Continuity With Ohmmeter.
