This sounds like a blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a blown thermal fuse. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My dryer will not start. It is only 4 yrs old.

Check your power source to make sure you are getting the proper voltage. If so check the electrical power connection on the back of the dryer where the cord is connected. Make sure the connections are tight. MAKE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE POWER FIRST. If all of the above are in good condition the the start button would be the next area to check whithout the proper electrical meters this would be hard. however, the next item in line to prevent the dryer from working would be the start button or the door closer switch. Both of these need to be checked using an electrical meter. If you have an apliance tech check it for you it shouldn't be expensive at least you hav an idea as to what is wrong.

Good luck hope this helped you some

Kenmore 73954 : Only runs when the START button is continuously pressed

The start button starts the motor heater and energizes a relay that latches closed to keep the motor and heater running untill the timer switch or door switch cut the power to the relay and the relay opens.
The latching relay has failed or disconnected
if all the cables are attached to the relay
replace relay
not an expensive item, usualoly good for 10years
dryer circuits look like this, the start switch and relay are drawn just to the right of the motor, this diagram has no relevance to the physical position of the parts
