There is a switch assembly on the motor that activates when the motor is running. Centrifugal switch. It keeps it running when you release the switch. That is where to start. Eric

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer


The trouble is actually with the start bearings in the drive motor,I bet you have a small hummmm or GRRRRR right at the start, as if the unit wants to hesitate.
Anytime you have a dryer that starts then shutsoff and must "cool" down, it is the motor.

Good luck!

Dryer shuts off after releasing "push to start"


this problem sounds like it can only be 1 of 2 problems. the start button or the motor is not going into run winding. i found over the years that the blue wire i believe is burnt at the motor. this can be repaired quite easily .cut the wire and strip it putting a new connector on. if you need to you can buy an assortment at a hardware store. if every thing is good check the start button for burnt wire if ok then you most likely have a bad motor. i'm pretty sure though that a wire is burnt off at the motor

Kenmore gas dryer timer? problem


Sounds like your centrifugal switch on your drive motor may be defective. The switch is supposed to "latch" (or stay closed) when the drive motor begins to spin. That...or, you may have a defective start switch. Please post back with your COMPLETE model number so I can determine how your dryer is configured as all dryers are not alike. I need to make sure.
