HI. if the timer is running, and the wiring harness is in good condition, this will confirm motor failure. I would advise to test the operational value of the door switch as well but if the door switch is working, this will only lead to motor failure.

what is the model number?there are a couple of things you can check with the little info you sent,check the door switch,push the paddle in and out ,if it doesn't click it's bad,check to see if the belt broke,on some dryers there is a switch down near the pulley,if the belt brakes the dryer won't run,one more thing if your dryer hasn't had a clean out in a long time or if your clothes have been taking a long time to dry check the thermal fuse located on top of the blower wheel housing,if the lint filter is on top the fuse is in the back,take off the vent line,remove the back panel and check the fuse located to the right and down near the bottom of the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is inside then the fuse is in the front the fuse is on top and to the right of the blower wheel housing,also you should clean out the duct that the filter slides into,blow out the vent line,check outside and make sure the flapper is not blocked with anything and vac out the inside of the dryer where the motor is,you need to do this once a year anyway,if you still need help send the model number and let me know what you find,unplug the dryer to clean it and when working on it and remove one of the wires when using your meter

Disconnect power to the dryer and remove the screws attaching the console rear panel to the console and pull the panel off.
Inspect the wires connected to the timer and ensure a snug fit connection. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat it several times to ward off dirt within the connectors.
Reconnect power to the dryer and start it; replace the timer (part number 3398195 ) if the dryer still won't stay running. Unplug the dryer and pull the timer knob off the console. Remove the screws securing the timer to the bracket and remove it. Secure the new timer in place then disconnect the wires from the old timer one at a time and connect it to the corresponding terminal on the new timer.
Push the timer back into position on the console and secure the console rear panel in place.
