Quick question, The resistor located at the side of the timer has 0 continuity and the heating element has 0 continuity = no heat. Will this cause the timer not to advance?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mike,

The resistor should be between 4000 to 4900 ohms, and the heater 11-50 ohms.

Are you sure your ohm meter is working ok?

Is it heating but the timer isn't moving?

Here's the resistor assembly for your model you can order:
279872 Resistor

Put the timer in timed dry or air dry and see if the timer moves.

Hi Jake,

Yes no heat.
There a 0 ohms at resistor and 0 ohms on heater. Timer doesn't advance in timed dry. Wasn't sure if the resistor/heater would effect the advancement of the timer?

Thanks for the help!

Even with a bad resistor the timer should move in the timed with or without heat.

Here's the timer for your model:
Manufacturer's Number: 696615

But it bothers me that your element is reading 0 ohms, what is your meter set on? Should be set on Rx200

Thanks Jake,

I wanted to make sure the heater and resistor didn't effect the timer as the timer for this old machine is a little pricey. The heater and resistor would have been a cheap fix.

Thanks again!

Yes Mike, thats true.

From the parts diagram it says this is a 1984 dryer. So it has out lived its normal life which on average for dryers is 8-12 years.:)

8 to 12 years life? My brother in laws dryer lasted 60 years. Replaced it last year. Got it installed the day my sister came home with my first nephew from the hospital. He is now 61. I doubt the new high tech stuff will last even 10 years.

Out Maytag dryer is 36 years old. Replaced thing that keeps the drum from dragging 10 or 15 years ago.
