Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
My dryer has decided to shut off right after I let go of the Start Button. Once I've pressed START, I have to keep my finger on the button to keep it going (of course, I don't plan on standing around). I do not hear any noises out of the ordinary, and the drum will spin as normal (if I have my thumb on START). Since I'm not a particularly handy guy, I'm not sure what issue I may be dealing with. Any suggestions? TIA!
BTW, I own a Kenmore Elite White-on-White 7.5 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with EvenHeat Temperature Control (Model#63942)
Just changed out my relay motor switch and it did the trick. The dryer works fine again. Good luck to all and thanks for the posting.

There is a relay that is not doing its job...it is supposed to "take over" as the button holder, but the relay has problems. find the relay by following all wires to/from start switch. Once found, read it looking for letters "NO" (normally open). If 2 of those wires traced earlier go to NO connections, first see if the relay has 2 more unused NO connectors. If it does, swap the wires over to those. If not, replace the relay.
