most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

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

I would advise to inspect the high limit thermostat. this device may be defective. this will cause the element to continue to operate when the unit is off as well. If the thermostat is operating correctly, replace the timer.

If the dryer isn't heating, check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. Both components are located in the rear of the dryer. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.
