Kenmore Elite 110.62974100 Will not stay running, or heat.

Kenmore Elite 110.62974100 If you punch the start button, dryer starts, when you let go of the button, it quits. If you hold the button down, it continues to run, but does not heat. Tore the dryer down clear to the heating element, it is good. What could be wrong?

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

Kenmore Elite 11072972101 gas dryer will not stay on after I push the start button. What is wrong and how do I fix it.


If you HOLD the start button down and the drier heats and runs, then your problem is most likely a relay which is supposed to energize (close contacts), which "latches" the condition when you push the start button. The most likely cause of such a failure, is a fuse or a thermal cut out, which has prevented normal operation. For safety reasons, being a gas appliance, I would NOT ATTEMPT to fix this problem yourself, unless you have licenses to service such equipment!

Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released


there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
