What is wrong with a dryer that the heating element comes on when timer knob is turned to on setting but start button is not pushed?:confused:

Most likely the heating element coils are shorted to the ground. You have to check it with a multimeter.

Remove the rear cover to access the heating element.

If it comes to the heating element replacement, compare the original part and the new one. If they are different then you have to order two heating element wires too.
