It is probably that the switch itself is bad. you can go to partsselect.com put in the brand and model # of your dryer(model and serial number should be on the inside of the door on a tag) and find the part and a picture that may help with the installation.

Kenmore Elite 73942 Gas Dryer only runs with start button held


Unplug the dryer. Open the control console.Mark and remove the wires from the start switch.
Using a volt meter set for continuity,touch meter leads to R1 and R2 while pushing the switch. No reading is a bad switch.
Touch meter leads to R2 and CT1. No reading is a bad switch.
If the switch checks out good the start windings in the motor are bad.

Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released


there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
