Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Dryer is over 10 years old, runs and dries just fine but runs through each cycle and never shuts off unless door is opened. If the door is shut, the dryer turns on - either right away or when the timer runs to the next cycle. The start button does not need to be pressed - it normally did need to be pressed to start the dryer. Thank you!
There are 2 different kinds of units made back then.
one has a push to start button that could have a stuck contact causing the unit to think you are pushing the button and want it to run again.
the other could have a stuck motor switch and thats not available separately. you would have to replace the motor. try to clean any lint out of the motor if you have that type. use compressed air to blow the lint out of the motor. it usually works to get the lint out and it can cause the switch to stick.
