I have a whirlpool model WED4815EW0. The motor spins and runs the drum but the timer does not advance nor does it produce heat. It does not work on auto setting or manual timer settings. I tested the fuse, thermal sensors and heating coil for continuity. They all tested ok. Any thoughts as to what else it could be?

I would start by checking the 240 volts coming in and up to the terminal strip in the dryer. That's where I always start.

It sounds like you're missing one side of your 240 volts. The motor runs on 120 but to heat you need the other 120 volts to make 240.

Thanks for the reply! Sorry, I forgot to mention that i tested the plug and it is providing over 220 volts. It seemed odd because it was over 300 volts but it is providing power.

It shouldn't be much over 240 volts. That sounds strange.

I did some further testing and all the parts for the heating circuit test good for continuity. I put it back together and reset the breaker. Ran the dryer and still not heating. The timer does not advance either even on the setting for no heat, the fluff cycle I think it was called. How would I test the timer to see if it is bad?
