Ok, I checked on what the wire, it was a brown wire and it goes to the timer. 

Tim, I wish I had read your reply a bit sooner, as I was curious if something inside the timer was also fried.  Well, being the curious guy that I am and having to know how everything works, I pulled the timer apart!  Bad move, lots of levers and a couple of gears that came loose.  I will say after about 30minutes studying it, I would say I am 99.99% sure I got it back together correctly. 

The question that begs is....did something, like a gear, move to a position that will throw everything off!  Time to go hook it up, with the faulty part still hooked up and see if the timer appears to work.  At least as good as before, meaning it turns on at the correct spots and off at the correct spots.  If so, I'm going in the moring to pick up a new "dryness" board for $30, if not, I guess I'm also spending $80 on a new timer as well...  Lesson learned!:?

The good news is that there is nothing inside the timer that could have fried from the part that went bad.
