Heating element starts when i put the timer on even before i use the start button for the motor to start wich causes to overheat and burn all fuses and tempsensors.
Also keeps heating once the cooldown cycle is reached while it should cut the heat

The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed
cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer
hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some
dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not
advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat
inside the tub. Replace it
Most probably a venting problem and probably caused the heating element to ground out in its casing. Easiest way to verify is turn your timer to 30min and if dryer starts heating without pushing the start button you got a bad element caused by bad venting most of the time.
This is what is probably going on. There are two parts in the motor that cause the drum to rotate. One of them is "start" winding. It literally starts the drum's rotation. Once the drum motor has started the drum to move. The second portion of the motor, known as the "run" winding takes over and keeps the drum turning. When the Drum winding burns out. The same symptom is caused when the switch attached to the motor is also damaged. In your case, although this is rare. I think it may be the switch. The reason being is that the motor has a combination switch that also connects one side to the heating element. In a nutshell, If you get the dryer not continuing to turn AND the heating element stays on. There is a problem with the switch. If you get the heating element going on when you push the start button but turns off when you release the button. The problem is the motor having a burned out run winding. Either way, it is less labor intensive to replace the motor when you take it out. Doing it switch is not easy. Hope this helps. If not write back to me and we can continue. Best, Mark
Sounds as if the motor centrifugal switch is stuck. Check to see if lint built up around switch or centrifugal mechanism on motor shaft. Rap switch with the handle of a screw driver hard but don't break it .
I can suggest that you trace the wires from the heating element back to the control timer, There may be a heavy duty relay that turns the heating element on and the contacts could be burned not making contact or the relay coil could be bad this would cause the heating coils not to heat. Also some dryers had these contacts built into the control, If when you press the button to start the dryer and you hear the relay click on it should stay on until you open the door or shut the dryer off, If it is staying on then you may have a bad relay. Also check your fuses as the element runs on 220 and the motors run on 110. If the fuse that is bad is other than the side running your motor you will get no heat.
Replace the dryer wires.
Put your meter leads into the 4&5 slots.
Make sure the door switch is closed or jumpered.
Push the start button.
If you read no voltage the issue is with the wiring, the timer, or a relay.
