Start a Dryer Cycle and test the voltage from each side of Thermal Fuse to chassis (a good ground)
while someone pushes the Start Switch.

What would be the expected result?

The response from the Samurai earlier to my on line question said the forum could help explain how to check the timer function to see if it is broken... any help there?

OK... Thermal Fuse is still good
and that section of the Timer Contacts ...

NOW, test voltage on Motor pin 4M (maybe Blue wire) to chassis
and also from Pin 4M to Pin 5M (maybe White wire)
(while someone pushes the Start Switch)

Where are those pins located, off of the timer module?

I did test the 3 wires that came off right side of the timer module and only the top one had voltage coming off it. As I was testing the dryer it started to run for a few seconds and then stopped again (scared the %#@* out of me). I continued to poke around and it came on again for about 5 seconds and then stopped again.
