It seems that switch four on timer switch need to power increase dryer. I think I have to jumper T - W to power dryer. On ago side of connection I obtain 120 V throughout T -W with timer going and when I press the push to start switch.I think its the timer switch however not positive. It could still be the motor?Joe
Timer Switch component number is 3406725. ~ above the plug side of Timer switch I gain 120 volts across T -W once I engage the timer switch and engage the push to start switch. Not certain is the Timer move 4 is engaging. Any other suggestions?Thanks Joe
