On dryers with the old mechanical timers you can turn the knob in either direction without harming the mechanism. On either type, even electronically controlled models with a problem like you described, there are a lot of possibilities. After confirming you have power to the appliance check the thermal safety fuse located on the heater housing.

The timer is the "on" switch.
Things that can stop it starting.
Door switch- is the depresser pin contacting.
Broken main belt.
Faulty - motor- timer- door switch- belt switch ( if fitted) wireing.

SOURCE: impson Eziloader 4kg, drum will
I believe there is a capacitor on your motor(7-10 MFD) I would replace this and then ensure that the drum is reversing properly. It is usually just a short 2 to 3 turns, and the "normal" direction is much longer. This is done via a small motorized unit, usually called a "MOTOR TIMER", and the contacts inside it can get a bit burned an pitted if running for a while with a deteriorated start capacitor. If the motor and drum seem OK, but it does not reverse, you might need to change that unit. More expensive dryers might have a timer relay for this, or an electronic timer activating the relay.I hope this helped Tim
