    Dryer will only run when the start button is held in. I took it apart and there is a resistor on the electronic control circuit board that looks burnt. I was also wondering if the relay could be bad.

I have a Candy GOU218 when I push the start button it does start the dryer but as soon as I release my finger from the button it stops, It started doing it around a week ago so I had to push and hold


There are push to start circuits used for motors and then there are holding circuits that keep the unit running. This way the dryer stops if the circuit is open due to high temperature or end of the cycle. It seems as if the holding circuit (could be a rotary switch that stays closed while the dryer is running) or a holding circuit relay (stays closed until circuit is broken by the control) has failed.

You have to hold down the start button, once you let go the dryer stops. When I put something on the button to hold it down theres no heat. Only heat on heat sensor mode.

My gas dryer starts and will run. However when you let off the start button the dryer stops. If we hold the start button on it will run through it's entire cycle with no problems.

Dryer start button


The motor switch is not switching over. Either the switch is bad or the dryer is not tumbling fast enough to activate it. Eric

Asko Dryer stops running when you release the start button.


Hi, this is a simple issue here. these switches will fail from time to time. the start switch is unable to hold the circuit, in return, opening it upon release of the button.

Simply replacing the switch will fix this issue. switch is 20 dollars tops.
