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.

The Dryer is a Maytag Perfoma model # PYE4500AZW.

The dryer does not start at all. I am suspecting that it is the timer that is broken. Does not anyone knows how to test the timer????????????

It may be the timer, or it may be the thermal fuse.  How to tell?  Flip a coin?  Draw straws?  Call the psychic hotline?  Perhaps.  Or maybe...

Science can illumine our path!  Yes, we can actually KNOW with absolute certainty what the problem is by using our meter to test things.  I'd start by testing the thermal fuse for continuity.  Meter help here:
