I have an older kenmore gas dyer. as soon as the door is shut it starts running with out pushing the start button, and it doesn't shut off till you open the door . is it the start switch or the timer that...


Good day,
It could be either the push to start switch, or the centrifugal switch on the motor. You would need an ohm meter to check the push to start.
The way the system works, is the power goes first to the door switch, and then the timer.
If the timer is in the on position, it sends power out on TWO wires.
One goes to the push to start switch, which in turn goes to the motor, bypassing the centrifugal switch.
The other power wire goes to the centrifugal switch, and thru it to the same place on the motor, but only if the motor is already up to speed.
That's why it under normal conditions it will continue to run when you release the start switch.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for using FixYa

It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.
