You have a defective Start button replace the start button and you will be fine. Any Sears store can get you a replacement.

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.

Open the control panel to access the start switch. If it has 3 wires,replace the start switch. It has a defective coil.

check also,
  • the other ends of all cables connected to the relay,
    if the other end of any part of the latching circuit has loosened, the relay will not latch closed when the start button is pressed.
  • Door Switch, it is part of the latching circuit
