If it won't start and if you place timer in timed dry and timer doesn't run then you have a bad timer, assuming you do have 240vac coming into dryer. Unplug dryer and check that you have 240vac at receptacle. Open small panel on rear at top to inspect the power cord connection block. Make sure connections are tight and clean, no burning or melting.
