Dryer won't keep running after start button is released


On the motor is a spring loaded switch. When the motor spins fast enough, it moves and keeps the motor going. It could be stuck with lint. The spring loaded part moves parts inside where all the wires go. Look carefully, the wire locations should be marked. Don't open that part unless you're really good at putting little things back together. That part should be replaceable if it's gone bad. A little wd-40 can do a lot of wonders.

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
