    1. Check to make sure the coil is not bad in the start awitch. Manual push sends power to the coil which holds the switch closed.

    Gas or Electric??

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.
Thanks/Mike

Runs when PTS held but shuts off when released/no heat


No problem at all.The motor has a start and run winding.Your run winding is bad.The reason you have no heat is the run winding has to run to close the contacts on the motor switch.Replace the motor ,both problems solved. Hope this helps Please rate my response :)

When the start button is pressed and held down the dryer will run but when the button is not being held dowm the dryer cuts off. What could that be? It is a Kenmore 90 Plus Series Even Heat Dryer


i would say that it is in the "lockup" circuit in your motor. there is a centifugal switch which moves when it senses RPM of the motor which then in turn closes a set of contacts within the motor housing, thus locking the run contacts to keep your motor running. odds are that the switch, (which moves along the motor shaft) is dry or blocked by debris (lint) that gets caught in the motor housing.
a good cleaning and then a shot of lube on the shaft usuallly solves this problem....
good luck; jay

90 series will not stay running or heat


DO NOT KEEP THE BUTTON PUSHED IN AND RUN IT...It's the motor relay and the even heat board in the console. By keeping the button in, you're bypasssing a safety feature and could cause fire. It won't heat like that anyway. Repl. the relay witht the small blue wires and the board in the console and you should be fine.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


Hello , Sounds like your motor is over heating , it will run until the sensor shuts it down from getting to hot , it is most likley because the motor is covered in lint and needs cleaned. Hope that helps.
