On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.

I would suspect the timer is on it's way out the door. Do you have any areas the timer has dead spots? Check the exhaust for any plugging also.Is this only on a first time start up or is it after this dryer has been running? If after running it could be a high temp sensor, that by the time you are playing around with it, the temp has changed.

Get a new dryer, no matter how old! My dryer was doing the same thing, stopping mid cycle, we went to turn it back on last night and it ignited inside. Called 911, got the kids out, fire contained inside the dryer, but damage around. We just had minutes before the flames got to the walls! Now I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach Kenmore/Sears for such a faulty product that could of cost our lives and home! It's a Kenmore from Dec 2001. 9 years old should not start on fire!
