Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer
The dryer doesn't stop running. It just continues to cycle through the off position and starts going again. Opening and closing the door does not reset it. Normally need to push the start button to start it up again but it runs whenever the door is shut (unless it is in the Off position). We have to leave the door open to keep it from running. Thought it was the timer and just spent almost $80 for the part but that wasn't the problem and now I'm stuck with it. My guess it is either the push start switch or the door switch but I'm looking for advice before I start replacing any other parts. Thanks.
The dryer wont stop running only when open door will it start a fire?

I think it is a stuck start button. If you open the door, the dryer will shut off. Close the door and the dryer will begin to run again....try this and let me know. If this is correct, replace the start button assembly. Good Luck, Eric Campoion

The timer itself is defective, its not stopping the motor internal the timer when it hits the off poition, Replace the timer and wala!

The push-to-start switch is the easiest and cheapest to replace. You can check it by starting the machine then, unplug it, remove one of the wires from the switch, then plug dryer back up. Dryer should not start. If your model has an even heat board and two relays under the console, your problem could be with them if switch is not bad. Reply back if you need to know how to check them.
