In all probability, you have an open thermal fuse in your dryer or ( depending on the model) you may have a motor switch that is not making the circuit remain on. These switches use centrifigal force ( when the motor rotates up to speed ) to keep it on so that you can release the start switch. Hope that helps..

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King size capacity Quiet Pak 1 dryer doesn't turn on


Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

Our dryer doesn't stay on when you hit the start button. It turns off when you release the button.


The seal in ccircuit for run usually goes through a switch in the motor, whitch if it sticks or the switch goes bad, it wont stay running.

Hello tarkington, here is a parts diagram to start with. To replace the heating element, all you really need to do is take out the old one, and hook up the new one. It's that easy.Here is a video to help you with disassembly if needed.

And finally a video of a heater element being replaced. It's not exact to your model, but it might help.

Kenmore Elite Dryer button won't stay on - no heat


There is a switch on the motor, (centrifugal) that bypasses the push to start once the motor is turning. It is in the heat circuit also. Look there first...Eric

Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released


there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
