I just had a whirlpool dryer the other day that when the timer was moved into a cycle, ( you didn't have to press start) The Heater would come on.  It was due to a shorted heating element, not the Motor.

LOL, so did I, I ordered a new motor, stuck it in, only to find, it did the same thing.  And the whole time I had the heater in my truck.  Oh well, thats what I get for assuming with this job.  :ahhh:

So replace the thermal fuse? And not the motor?

yes, but first test the Heater for shorts to the chassis (ground)
If no short, could be the Motor (Switch)...
