Question about Kenmore Dryers
We have a situation where when we push the "on" button of the dryer, it will start, but as soon as we take our finger off the "on button, the dryer shuts off. Over the past year or so, it would do this but only after using it for long periods of time (i.e. 4-5 consecutive loads of clothes). Now, the dryer does this on the initial load and will not run.
Many dryer motors have a centrifcal switch on the motor that should allow the motor to continue operating after you remove the momentary start switch. Chances are, that motor switch is hanging up and not actuating to keep power on to the motor. Keep me posted and I'll follow along with you to help..
