    Actually it seems the problem is in the start button itself, not anything described in that article. You'll have to take the top back panel off, and find where the power button is connected to the circuit. Make a note of what terminals the wires go to (if they're soldered in), or carefully pull the plug out of the back (if it's a jack-plug configuration). Then, pull the knob off the front side, and remove the rest of the switch from behind. Note: You may find that the housing of the switch is actually screwed in underneath the button. Installation is reverse of removal.

Dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.


most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

My kenmore dryer turns on but wont stay on. I made sure the door was not loose and it was on the time dry. Can you tell me how to trouble shoot this?


If this is a problem that when you push the start button the unit runs, but as soon as you release the button the unit stops, then I have personally experienced this. It's a problem associated with the microcomputer board inside the control panel. You will need to unplug the dryer first. Then open the control panel and inspect the circuit board for burned components.
