My dryer - Whirlpool model LGR7848DQ1 has quit running properly. When I set the timer dial and push start, nothing happens. If I fiddle with the timer dial, the dryer sometimes starts, but it usually quits before the clothes are dry. At present it has added the feature of only starting on timed dry and air dry. By pulling out on the timer handle slightly in the heating part of timed dry, it will start and heat up. When you let go of the handle it stops. It seems to start with just wiggling in the final part of the timed dry cycle and in the air dry cycle.

My best guess is that this is the timer (I've checked the thermostats (I could only find two) for continuity and the other switches seem okay (since it will start sometimes they would not seem to be the problem). Is there something else I may be missing or should I just go ahead and try replacing the timer?

If for some reason this isn't your problem you can return the part but I'm sure your timer is bad from your description.
