All GE dryers have a wiring diagram inside the control panel on the left side as you stand in front of the dryer. It should show the wiring in black but with color coding listed for each wire. If yours is missing I will try to locate a copy. SearsPartsDirect use to have some wiring diagrams on their parts site.
If have a wiring/scematic diagram for the machine and a meter, you might try tracing the problem that way, just a thought may be a loose or bad wire on the back of the timer. It could be possible that the timer may have gone bad. Please let me know if this helps you in anyway.
Please make sure that the wiring is not tampered and taken out. Purchase the same type of timer and connect the wires after you have a sketch diagram with the wire codes so that no terminal wiring mistake is done while changing the timer.
Use the colour codes or use wire codes on the wire so that a wrong wiring is not possible.
Pay particular difference to the 3 and 4-wire configurations. There is a difference in how the neutral and ground wires are terminated. If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I receive email notifications to all your comments and/or questions. I hope this helps you.
In a GE dryer the sensor rods are below the front support and air duct assembly it may be that a wire has come loose or broken. The sensor itself may be bad but I would remove the front panel check wires before purchasing the part.
Look on the loose wire for a letter or number, it will be one or two inches from the female spade connector end. Then look on the timer and look for an empty terminal and see if the number or letter matches the one on the wire. If so, bingo! Attach the wire to the timer and see what happens. Also you could look on the wiring diagram for white wire and see where it positivley goes. Good luck. Remember to do all work with the unit unplugged!!
