It would help to know why you replaced the original timer.
Otherwise,you should unplug the dryer,take your wiring diagram and re-check every wire for accuracy.
Take a volt meter after you resume power and start the dryer. Carefully touch the meter leads to the 2 timer wire leads to make sure the timer is getting power.
A bad auto-dry sensor and or a bad control thermostat will stop the timer from advancing.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork

You must have a dryness sensor similar to this Wet clothes rub the sensor and this changes the resistance of the sensor. The dryness board sends power to the motor to move the timer towards the end when no more dampness is detected. 2 things you can do before buying any parts is clean the sensor and yank out the little board next to the timer,clean the contacts and get rid of the corrosion. If you do not have a control board then you need to replace the heating element control klixon
