Dryer won't stay on when let go of start button.


One of two things is wrong. Either the start switch has gone bad or the start winding in the motor is failing to switch over to the run winding. You'll need to get a multimeter and before starting unplug the dryer. Once thats done, get behind it, remove the back cover to the control panal and disconnect the two wires that are connected to the start button. With your meter set for checking continuity, place a meter lead on start button pins where the wires were connected, one lead on each side.With leads in place have someone press the start button, if continuity shows when pressed and stops when its not, the button is good and the motor is bad. Personally, I think the motor winding has burnt, and the motor should be replace, but I also think that the start button should be changed as well because its in direct series with the motor, and could have taken damage that may not show up until further down the road, plus its an inexpensive part.

I have i kitchen aid gas dryer,when i press the start button it makes noise for about 3-4 second s then it stops and it won't start


That is a bad sign. If the buzzing starts when you press the start button and stops when you release its almost safe to say that the motor has a dead short or grounded out and causing that to happen. You can check the start switch by getting a multimeter and with the dryer unplugged take the wires off the switch, place a lead on each pin and press the start with meter set for continuity. If it shows continuity when presed and stops when released your motor is shot and needs to be replaced.
Now if you press the start button and the machine starts to hum and continues to hum its possible that something has gotten caught in the blower wheel and binding the motor up. Depending on the make and model the location and access to it vaaries.
If you can turn the drum and then the dryer starts you have a bad motor. The way the dryer works is when you initially push the start button, electricity is sent to the start winding, or stator, of the motor. This will in turn start the motor turning. From there the stator will drop out of the electrical process and at the same time the run winding, or rotor, will take over and the motor will continie to run. Your stator is damaged, has a burn spot, etc so by you turning the drum, the belt around the drum is moved which is attached to the motor pulley. You basically take the place of the stator. Long story short, you have a bad motor.

When I push the start button I only get a whirring noise on any of the settings and the machine won't start.


Hi,
This could be the motor turning but the belt being broken. If you are mechanical inclined, you can investigate the inside of the machine, and see if the belt is broken. Replacement is not too difficult.
Any questions and I'll be more than happy to give more instruction

I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

My kenmore dryer will only run if i hold down on the start button. this has happened to me before but i cannot remember the steps to take inorder for it to reset.


first check the door safety switch,, if its bad the dryer won't run,, if that checks out ok, its time for a new switch for the start button, to check these, and do the door switch first, unplug the door safety switch and place a jumper wire between the 2 wires leading to the switch, try starting the machine making sure your away from any moving parts , if this works, replace the switch, if it stays the same, do this same procedure to the switch for the start button
