Question about Dryers

Starts automatically when I set the timer

My Kenmore gas dryer starts running as soon as I set the timer (without pushing the SART button. And when the timer gets to (0), The buzzer sounds and won't stop until you open the door or turn the signal off. I also think that after the timer gets to (0),the timer dial is still going because the dryer was running again after I was upstairs for a couple of minutes, it was on the next cycle around the dial.

Replace the start button. if i am not ostaken this strat button is a small black box shaped switch with 4 wires.(useless mexitronics,my opinion). To replace this one you simple release the tab and twist the switch a quater turn and it will drop out. No need to destroy the whole dayum front panel amig. LOL

This could be a problem with the start button switch (it should click when pressed/released) or with the switch on the motor.

Dryer stops but the timer continues on


Fixed! The "push to start" button was stuck. Must have been some dust. I pushed the knob a few times and that's all it took. Works fine now.

My Kenmore dryer turns on as soon as the timer is set .


Two possibilities:
1) Least likely cause. Start button is not opening when released. Don't know how far you wish to go with this but it will require some troubleshooting.
2) Most likely cause. Motor start switch has a set of contacts that close when the dryer starts and this set of contacts "seals" around the push button. If this is the case, a new switch is in order. Switch is normally replaceable without replacing the motor.
Other option is use "as is".

The start button works like a push-on switch that engages the timer switch. It's all one unit. It isn't engaging because the internal lever the engages the switch is either broken or worn out. The start timer/switch will need to be replaced.
