Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer
Dryer starts, runs and even drys clothes only w PTS held on. When button is released, dryer stops. Bad PTS? Bad EC assembly? Bad sensor?
Push to start button needs replacing,sometimes you can jump that out if you have another switch that starts the dryer when you close the door

Its possible the dryer heat selector is at fault. If the timer inside does not move to the end of the heat cycle you may have further problems. Depending on how old the dryer and how long it has taken to dry garments, you may want to check that the motor has not gone bad causing an electrical overload. Faulty timers will cause extended drying times eventually putting a strain on the motor's bearings and electrical windings. You may want to get a replacement or get a repair estimate to repalce the belt, motor, drum rollers and heating coil components.

SOURCE: GE dryer starts but..... stops
What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
