Door switch is bad or wires to it cut some where, wires to motor cut if none of these fix most likely motor bad.

check the door switch to see if it's broke,then check to see if you have 240 volts going to the dryer inthe back where the cord connects to it and also i need the model number

I really hope the problem is the start button is defective, it is stuck on. You would need to get a new one. Bad news is, that is a little bit more rare than the timer itself being messed up . Those are quite expensive.
Be blessed.

Check if your element is not grounded or it can be a contact on the motor switch that is stuck.

Explanation.
Inside the rear of the dryer is a row of 3 screws/nuts.
The right and the left of those 3 are "hot".
You will attach the red and/or the black leads to those "outside" 2 screws, doesn't matter which.
The center wire is white wire only, it is a ground.
For the 4th wire, it will attach to the body of the dryer, it is also a ground.
P.S. On both the 3 prong and the 4 prong, the HOT wires ( red and also black ) are straight/flat lugs.
The "L" shaped lug and the round lug (4 prong only) are both ground.
Be blessed.

Well, of all the problems, you selected an easier one!
Your four-pronged cord has two straight lugs on it.
These are "HOT".
You also have two more lugs, one is round, and one is "L" shaped.
Those two are "ground".
Here's how they attach.
Inside the rear of your machine are 3 screws/nuts in a row.
The outside 2 screws/nuts are both HOT, and it doesn't matter whether the red wire goes to the left one or the right one.
Same with the black wire.
Goes to the left or the right.
The center screw/nut is for the white ground wire.
The other wire (maybe green or maybe blue) should be attached to the side of the hole where the wire enters the dryer.
That one should be put under a screw on the side of the hole, fastened to the "case" or the body of the dryer.
Be blessed.

Could be that the breaker open on the heating elements. Go to http://fisherpaykelparts.net/techhelp/fisher-paykel-top-load-dryers-us-models/ Look at post on "no heat" in this forum will work you through your problem

Since I just had a repair man out to look at mine, there are two screws--one at the front of each side just under the lid. When you remove them you can pop the top up. That exposes two more screws, one at the top of each side of the front assembly. Remove them, and pull the front off.
