Dryer only runs when I hold down Start button works fine only if I hold the start button down This is a gas dryer


souds like the door switch is broken or malfunctioning . unplug the dryers power cord , locate switch by removing top cover no need to remove switch just yet. locate two wires coming from switch . and check function by means of a continuity tester or multi tester. touch the red test lead to one wire termial and the black test lead to the other , now set your meter to resistance reading . with switch normaly open ie; (door open) youll have high resistance reading and with dooor closed or switch held in youll have no resistance. or an audible tone on your tester. if no tone or high resitance reading occurs with door closed or switch held in the switch is bad. hope this was helpful.

My dryer drum won't turn but the electrical panel is lighting up


it is most likely that the belt inside the back of the dryer is broken or loose.

unplug the dryer and remove the back cover of the dryer. it should look something like this:

My kenmore dryer will only run if i hold down on the start button. this has happened to me before but i cannot remember the steps to take inorder for it to reset.


first check the door safety switch,, if its bad the dryer won't run,, if that checks out ok, its time for a new switch for the start button, to check these, and do the door switch first, unplug the door safety switch and place a jumper wire between the 2 wires leading to the switch, try starting the machine making sure your away from any moving parts , if this works, replace the switch, if it stays the same, do this same procedure to the switch for the start button

My dryer won,t start. When you set the timer and turned the starter on you hear a sound that seems it will run but when you let go the starter it just won/t run


You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor

Drum turns only when holding down the start button


The infinity start button has an internal detent that has failed.
Please replace the start button.

Dryer won't run right


The motor in your unit has to be replaced. The centrifical sw can't seem to keep the motor going. The shaft may spin freely, but once power is present the shaft locks up therefore your over amping the motor and it then trips the breaker. Since you already had the unit apart you will do fine replacing the motor. Good luck
