Question about Kenmore Dryers
When we press the start button on our Kenmore dryer, it starts, but as soon as I let go of the start button, it immediately stops. It did this several times last week, now it does it everytime
On the motor is a spring loaded switch. When the motor spins fast enough, it moves and keeps the motor going. It could be stuck with lint. The spring loaded part moves parts inside where all the wires go. Look carefully, the wire locations should be marked. Don't open that part unless you're really good at putting little things back together. That part should be replaceable if it's gone bad. A little wd-40 can do a lot of wonders.
