Do the letters at the end of the Kenmore timer model numbers indicate important differences? For instance, mine is model 3976570B. Can I replace it with a 3976570 or a 3976570A?

3976570 is the correct part number. Ignore the letters at the end.

Ok, thanks. Now I'm trying to test the timer, which makes sounds like it is working. The dryer is not working and I've tested the motor and all the thermostats and fuses I could find. I get no ohms reading between the two posts for the black wires of the timer. And when I try to bypass the timer by connecting the posts with a wire and two alligator clips I trip the circuit breaker. Am I doing it wrong or have I demonstrated that the timer is bad?

... or have I demonstrated that the timer is bad?

1) the (2) Black wires are the 120v power to the Timer Motor
2) yes
3) no

Check your door switch for continuity with your meter. (Dryer should be unplugged or circuit breaker turned off.)

With the lever on the door switch pressed you should get continuity.

Without touching the lever you should get an open circuit.
