Kenmore Elite Dryer only runs if hold Start Switch

I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer. I've had some intermitent problems
with the start switch. If I hold it down the dryer runs fine. If I let go,
it stops. It was intermittent for a while but now is a solid problem. Could
this be a simple as replacing the switch or something else ?

Kenmore elite HE31 front loader will not start but has power


This seems to be a problem in the start switch diode. If all works fine, but will not push and start and all cycles seem to work when working it manually, this is in the switch timer electronic diode is not working properly. Sometimes a code will not come up, because cycles are still working when manually changing wash cycles. There is seperate switch or electronic trigger that starts the machine, and has probably worn out or not making good contact. If you can unplug machine and then take off panel, trying spraying behind start switch with electronic cleaner to free up any possible dust or dirt. Might get lucky.

My Kenmore elite 100.24942301 Lid switch problem


You may can slightly bent the part the lid contacts so it will be depressed further thereby making the switch. If that doesn't work then you will need to replace the switch.

Runs when PTS held but shuts off when released/no heat


No problem at all.The motor has a start and run winding.Your run winding is bad.The reason you have no heat is the run winding has to run to close the contacts on the motor switch.Replace the motor ,both problems solved. Hope this helps Please rate my response :)

Kenmore elite dryer model #110.63952102 start button wont stay on everything else works


I have the same problem with my Kenmore Elite dryer (model#110.74992300), and I replaced both the motor and heater relay and the problem solved. You can get the relay from www.mouser.com for $3 each. The model for the relay is T9AP1D52-48. You may want to open up the dryer to verify the relay model, it is printed on the relay.
