Question about Dryers
Switch was not at fault
the switch supplies a momentary current to a relay that then latches to supply the current to the heater and moto until disconnected by the door switch or timer
too much current for a switch.
The relay has either disconnected the wire from its latching circuit or failed internally.
trace the wires from the switch to the relay, something like this may not be transparent, but will likely be the first device downstream from the button
If any wires are loose, refit them. else replace relay. There are very few relays, common to many dryer models, the local parts guy will have one, if not marked kenmore, then Frigidaire or GE
make certain when repacing that each cable is set on the terminal that it was removed from.
