Question about Dryers
The timer will not advance on my dryer I have already replaced the Timer, Cycling Thermostat, Thermal fuse, High Limit Thermostat and the Thermal Cut-Off Fuse. The wiring at the wiring block is goo and there is the correct voltage to the dryer. The door switch is good and the start button is functioning. The dryer works on all cycles, heats, etc.

You are missing over $150 in parts. You can buy a working unit out of the newspaper for that or less.
All of the wires on those models have letters and numbers on them near the connectors at each end.
Go to the Sears Parts Direct website with your Model Number and you may be able to print out a wiring diagram, because that is what you will need.

One side of the element powers from the timer and the other side from the motor . Remove one wire from the element , and check which wire is not getting 120 V . Trace the wire NOT getting 120V and it will lead either to the timer or the motor , providing that the small t-stat looking piece (thermal cut-off) located close to the top of the heater box , shows continuity . If it does not , then pt # 3392519 is for it and the hi-limit t-stat . If you replace it , then replace both that come in the kit .

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.
