Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The new timer does not look quite like the old one.
The problem is that the new M460-G timer does not have the same terminal letters as the old one (because there seem to be a variety of sub-models under the M460-G name providing varying options such as an "air dry" function). However, I've at least been able to provide the basic timed heat function using a different M460-G on my old Frigidaire Crown Gas Dryer M/N FDGB23RGS2 . To do this, figure out the terminal functions by rotating the M460-G switch and measure with ohm meter and also inspect wiring diagram (mine was at appliance pros dot com).
On Frigidaire Crown FBGB23RGS2 Gas Dryer:
The original M460-G is wired:
Terminal / Function / Color
A / Gas / Org
B / Line voltage / Red
C / Motor / Wh
Timer wired between TM and C
AD / Auto Dry / Pink
TD / Start Switch and Motor / Tan
On other M460-G Gas Dryer timer (from mystery Dryer), I wired it to into my Crown dryer as follows:
Terminal / Function / Crown Dryer Wire color
BU / Line Voltage / Red
BK / Motor / Wh
R / Gas / Org
V / ? / No Connection
Timer wired between TM and BK
WB / switched on while Motor & Gas / Tan
OR / ? / Pink (figured it was safe)

Look at the numbers and letters on the old timer and match the wire to the same numbers or letters on the new "R to R , TM to TM, N to N and so on also you might have a wrong part

Sounds like you have a faulty timer switch, check with your local supply house and get the same type of switch.
When you go to replace the timer switch, unplug the dryer, then remove one wire at a time. This will prevent wiring mix-ups.
I hope this helps
