You may still have a bad Electronic Range Control (ERC). This is your timer that you mentioned. The oven is controlled by the ERC. There is a separate circuit for the BROIL and BAKE functions. Does the BROIL element still work? Or, are both elements not working? You may want to double check all your connections from the element to the control board as well. Sometimes the wire lugs can oxidize and not make good contact. Check the ERC to see if there any obvious signs of failure. Burned components are common. These boards are considered "non-serviceable" and usually requires replacing. You can attempt component-level troubleshooting if you are savvy with electronics. There's usually a basic block diagram that comes with your appliance mounted somewhere inside the operator console or on the back panel of the range.
The ERC for your range would cost in the neighborhood of about $100 - $140 to replace. Prices will vary between model versions and will also depend on where you get it. It is a very simple repair job if you wish to pursue this yourself. I can give you step-by-step instructions if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.
PS The reason all your surface elements still work is because they are controlled by infinite switches behind the control knobs. There is a separate switch for EACH burner.

for the 8 button control ovens, white-westinghouse
turn both knobs to the lock setting (it looks like a padlock)
select the timer button (a clock with a line under it)
Increase the timer to 3 hours for heavy cleaning, 1 hour for light cleaning.
Then press start, (looks like a man running)
After cleaning let the oven cool down for 45 minutes
Hope this helps!

Symptoms= Oven light ok, thermostat light ok, oven not heating at all or to a low heat. May also have tripped the circuit breaker on the switchboard
Probably the element
Switch off power to the oven at switchboard
Open the oven door just a little and pull the door up to remove it.
Lift the panel at the oven back wall over the fan.
See the coiled element, you may already see a defect in the surface of the element.
Remove the screw at the base of the coil
With a small sharp screwdriver flip out the clip on each side of the element at the top
Feed the element out of the holes
Note that the green wire is attached to the frame of the element and the red wire to the core of the element.
The other side of the element may have two white wires
Disconnect all these wires, maybe using a pliers.
You can check this element with a simply multimeter, buy a new element and refit opposite to removal
