measure voltage from each thermal device to chassis (a good ground)

That timer looks like a cheap build with leaf switches inside it.

I see the timer is NLA for this model.
Dryer Timer Part # 3394734

How old is this dryer?

JADsvc1:
Thanks guys:

I didn't look for build date on unit while there. The parts manual is dated 1992. Serial number is MB5108799. I don't know date codes on Whirlpool products, but my guess is 15 - 20 years old. That would explain why the timer is NLA.

Yes, it looks like a low end timer. I probably couldn't even disassemble and burnish contacts for a temp fix.

I will run through the voltage checks though to be sure, but I think everyone is looking in the right direction and it is the timer.

Appreciate everyone's input! Have a great day!
