Question about Dryers
The switch is not likely at fault.
the switch activates a relay that is supposed to latch in place until the door switch or timer de-energize it, to supply the very large currents to heater and motor.
The relay has failed, it looks something like this, though may not be transperent, trace the wires from the start button, the relay will be the first 'thing' in the circuit. Generic relays will be available to fit, one fits many dryers, at the local parts store.
