Dryer will start when start button is pushed, but as soon as you stop pressing the button, the dryer stops


I would open up the control panel unplug the unit, disconnect the wires to the push-to-start-switch and use a paperclip to attach these two connecters. If everything works you know it is the switch that is bad.

GE dryer starts but..... stops


What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.
Thanks/Mike

Push start button the dryer will tumble, but immediately stops


there is a relay that latches on when you push the start button .. that relay is released by the "door open" switch .. i would suspect that the "door open" switch is bad .. thats usually a button that is pushed in when the door is closed ..

Dryer stops when I release push to start button


Timer may need to be replaced. You can test it with an ohmmeter or test light.
You can do the same with the push button. If you have more problems, then the main control could be faulty

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad motor. You can try and open the door, hold the door button while having someone push the start button. Try turning the drum with your hand while these buttons are pushed and see if the dryer starts. It sounds like the start winding has gone bad.
If the drum will not turn, remove the front panel of the dryer and see if something has gotten into the blower wheel to stop it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me knwo if I can assist you further.
