SOURCE: 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

I have a Kenmore dryer model number 110.73932102. Push starter button, runs. Release dryer button dryer stops. Why?


Open the control panel to access the start switch. If it has 3 wires,replace the start switch. It has a defective coil.

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.

check also,
  • the other ends of all cables connected to the relay,
    if the other end of any part of the latching circuit has loosened, the relay will not latch closed when the start button is pressed.
  • Door Switch, it is part of the latching circuit
