Sounds like your centrifugal switch on your drive motor may be defective. The switch is supposed to "latch" (or stay closed) when the drive motor begins to spin. That...or, you may have a defective start switch. Please post back with your COMPLETE model number so I can determine how your dryer is configured as all dryers are not alike. I need to make sure.

I have a gas Kenmore Elite Dryer . When I turn it on and hit the start button it runs only if i hold the button in when i let it go it stops and the timer keeps ticking. Is it the igniter?

the most common problem with gas appliances not running is the flame probe. This device detects a flameout and shuts the gas valve. It could be faulty or not sitting in the flame itself

Starts automatically when I set the timer

This could be a problem with the start button switch (it should click when pressed/released) or with the switch on the motor.

Dryer will not run

Is your dryer an evenheat dryer? It will say evenheat above the timer. Can you give me a model #? The problem is either an evenheat board or a heat relay. Relays cheap, boards not. Easy to fix. Let me know. thanks Dave
