Sounds like you have a faulty start switch.
Turn off the power to the dryer, remove the switch and then check the switch with a continuity meter to see if it is faulty. If it is then replace the switch
I hope this helps

Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

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

Kenmore dryer keeps on going and going


The timer is bad. It is located behind the knobs and can be replaced really easily. The price for a new timer is about 35 dollars. If this helped please rate

Must hold start button to run. no heat


disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor
How old is this dryer?
