It is one of 2 things either the motor switch is not working right or the control board is out check the motor first if you have a multimeter check the centrifugal switch on the motor

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 :)

For Kenmore model 110 62942100 dryer, i push the start button and the dryer turns on, but then shuts off when I release the button. I checked to make sure door is closed.


greetings,

Its possible you have a defective relay. this dryer has a start relay for motor and one for heater. they are the same. if you can find them and know someone who is ok around electric. you can have them find which one is which and switch wiring. if it starts, buy a relay..if not, the motor is defective..i'll bet its the relay..Bruce

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.
