Whirlpool LER6620PQ0 - Heating but Motor Not Running?

21 May 2013 - 04:29 PM

According to what I have read on lit about the Whirlpool LER6620PQ0, the heating elements should not be on when the motor is not running (centrifuge sw not engaged).  Is this true?  Right now that is what is happening when I move the timer to, let us say 60 minutes.  It does not matter if the push to start switch has been hit, or if the dryer door is closed - the heating elements come on when the timer is advanced from off.  


I have tested the PTS sw  and door SW with a multimeter - all working.

I have pulled the motor and looked at the centrifugal sw - it appears to be mechanically just fine.  


I have not tested the motor, but not noticing the traditional 'burnt motor' smell.  Will be testing motor while I wait for a response, but am sorta confused why the heating element is coming on - where's the power coming from?.
