Maytag Performa

I checked the fuse, the outlet and door switch, and the coils (heater) and they all are ok. When I turned on or set up the switch, the timer make a noise, however the dryer does not start.

Assume this is a Maytag electric dryer, what is the model number so they can see what is in this unit???  Could be a thermo fuse, if this unit has one.

The model number is PYE4500AZW, just it is an electric dryer.

Only things in this dryer in the motor circuit are the timer, start switch, door switch, fuse under the heating element, and motor as far as I can see.  If the timer is running sounds like you have power to the dryer. Or a bad wire somewhere.  Need to check to see where you are losing voltage with your volt stick.

I have a very strong suspicious that it is the timer that is broken. How do I test the timer???
