    can you be more specific?
    Is there a way to release the start button other than breaking it apart? If I break the button housing will I be able to replace it myself?

Have you tried twisting the old one off with a pliers? If you are only removing the button and not the rod, it should either twist or pop off and don't worry about wrecking it, look at the new button that you bought and see how it would attach to the rod so you know how you should pull it off

Let me know if you need any other help and good luck to you

I wouldnt personally tamper with a product of thet expence, but if you have to, you have to take a few things into concideration.
1.The buttons are set up for that if you wanted to remove them, they would have to be broken.
2. Call a local repair office and see if they could do it in a non-destructive way.

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...

broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:
