Question about Dryers
Some switches are made to open the electrcal contacts when the actuator is pressed so since you mentioned the switch broke.. and you hard wired it shorted together.try unhooking those wires from each other ( probably not gonna fix your problem but a simple test).. The other more likely candidate is the non-resettable fuse used on many dryer models... once that opens.. the dryer stops doing dryer things.. It will need to be replaced
use this link at look at item 59 ( thermal fuse).. it may be your problem...
Hope this helps...
