so the black wire is on the terminal right beside the blue #44 wire? No #23 marking on the black wire?

OK, guess I missed this message.  You typed -

"test for 240 volts, one lead at the blue 44 wire on the timer, the other at the black 33 on the element with the dryer running on time dry high heat, all wires hooked up and be very careful. what did you read?"

You do mean running, as in plugged in and running, not just set on time dry high heat.  I have the belt off and the drum out.  Do I need to reassemble or can I just let the motor turn?

Regarding this -

"so the black wire is on the terminal right beside the blue #44 wire? No #23 marking on the black wire?"

Yes, black right beside blue, and no #23, just all the garbage that I wrote.

Now there are solitary markings on the two wires connected at the bottom of the unit.  The grey wire reads - 24.  The yellow - 43.

I haven't checked the voltage yet, as I was rechecking the markings.

Do you want me to check more wires or go on to the voltage?

Might have a problem there.  Using a handheld multimeter, with rather short leads.  Guess I'll need a roach . . . uh alligator clip?  Which I'm pretty sure I don't have.  I can pick one up in the morning, unless you have another solution?

OK lets get creative. Take a insulated flatblade screwdriver and with the dryer running ,time dry, high heat, bridge the gap between the blue #44 and the big black unmarked wire beside it. Be looking a your at your element. Did it get redhot? If so, bad timer for sure.Do tell?

Oh, now this is embarrassing.  Not an insulated screwdriver to be found.  All plastic handled, wood working type.  I do have plenty of rubber coated handled pliars, as in wire cutters.  Will this work?

Also just found a shorty screwdriver, it's not marked as insulated or anything, but it does have a fat rubber grip.

Or, behind door number three, I found that if I moved the dryer lid off center, the multimeter will reach.  As long as I can elect tape one of the probes since it does not have clips and I cannot reach/see both timer and heater element at same time.

Your call.  My dryer, my life, but your call.

Don't know what happened, didn't even get a chance to turn the dry on.  As soon as I touched both blue and black the thing blew.  So, I'm pretty sure it's at least the timer now.  Though dryer was not on, might I have damaged other components?

Hmmm...that should not have happened if you touched only the two terminals together. These are awfully close to the timer motor... no chance you contacted it is there?

Nope, couldn't have.  Marks left on screwdriver match up perfectly with marks on terminals.  But, I did notice this - ground wire was is not attached.  It may have pulled off when I so geniously moved the lid forward so I could watch the element.  Unless you think it could it have popped off with the breaker.

Maybe its the late hour but i'm stumped, bedamned and bumfuzled... just so i'm clear, these 2 wires you jumped are the same 2 you pulled and tested for continuity earlier? Will the dryer still start and run? If it will, start it up and jump those those 2 again after you get it running and see if it blows again.

Yes, same two that I pulled and tested the terminals and got a reading of 1 (no movement).  I will go reset breaker and see if the dryer runs.  Then I'll come back to see if you still want me to try the bridge again.

Yes, it runs.  Confirm that I should retry the bringe, this time with ground wire attached to dryer case.

OK, didn't blow this time.  But it did arc a little bit.  Element did fire up.
