If all your safety's check good and your door switch is ok then you are down to the timer or the motor. Since it ran all night and the timer did not shut down you must need a timer. I would start there.

i have not checked the door switch.  do you think this is worth checking ?  the timer sounds like it should be the problem... as the motor was still running in the morning.

is the timer something i can check or do with my limited repair experience ?   or is it time to bring in a professional ?

thanks as always...

Sincerely,
Mr Dirty Clothes

The door switch Mr Dirty clothes is way cheaper than a timer and I always advise going with the cheapest parts first because i never gave refunds on electrical at my appliance parts store before I retired.

DRYER IS FIXED.

END RESULT... ONE OF THE FUSES HAD BLOWN IN THE WALL MOUNTED FUSEBOX DEDICATED TO THE DRYER.  MY DAD SUGGESTED I CHECK THAT.

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE SUGGESTIONS... AND HELP.
