When the timer on an electric dryer fails to start the dryer. Should you still be able to hear it ticking, when the timer is turned on?

Of course. Correct diagnosis is the key to such things. All the items you swapped out were fine. There are checks you can make with all those components. The rotary type timer is just a clock timer like a wind-up alarm clock. When you turn them on, they tick. In normal circumstances, turning it on will start the machine, and not count down. You need to remove it and make sure you have continuity and also power to the timer. There is more to this than meets the eye. The other item that it may be, is the motor itself.

Dryer doesn't start

Actually, it's probably the switch under the button meeting its demise.

Dryer will not start but timer ticking

If the start button is an "ON - OFF" button (meaning, you can turn the dryer off manually instead of resetting timer in order to switch it off), try turning the dryer ON...then switch it back to "OFF".
Hopefully the dryer will continue, and the thermostat will kick in.

Dryer Won't Start

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.
