Dryer won't stay on when button is pushed the button has to be held down for the dryer to run


A centrifugal switch has failed within the dryer. The centrifugal switch maintains electrical flow to the motor after the start button has been released (this is a safety measure) When you press the start button you put power directly to the motor; once started the centrifugal switch then puts power to the motor until the time then shuts it down.
I hope this may have helped you,

Dryer won;t work


Remove the top cover and take a hair-dryer to the PC boards on the back of the main control panel.. (3 screws take the top cover off from the back) Mine has done it a total of 5 times now.. what it needs is all new buttons installed.. or a new control panel if this works..
