That is VERY DANGEROUS.............I would NOT recommend doing that under any circumstances.........it could be a safety device that is keeping the start button from working in order to keep it from shorting out.............

also, it could be the start button itself but, it is not worth the chance that it could catch fire.

its a saftey device, called a "thermodisk". It's purpose is to turn off the heating coil or stop gas flow in the event of over heating. If the thermodisk is bad, trying to over ride it (trying to get it to run) will trip the breaker. Its about 10 bucks and easy to replace.

The start botton needs to be held down for my dryer to function.


Motor Number 279787 needs to be replaced.

The instant you press the button on the console, the motor should start. When it starts a mechanism in the motor operates a switch mounted on the motor (provided w/new motor). That makes a circuit which replaces the action of your finger holding the button by creating a bypass circuit. This bypass circuit takes the start switch completely out of the circuit and keeps the motor running.

Your motor is not making this bypass circuit.

I think you may have a bad relay on the motor, where power is re-applied after the push start is released
