When you press the on button nothing happens unless you hold it in what could be causing this


There is a switch on the motor that replace the push to start in the circuit once it gets up to speed. Either it is not reaching speed or the switch has failed.

Dryer won't stay on


The motor centrifugal switch is not switching from the start winding to the run winding. The switch should stay in the run winding when the motor picks up speed unless power to the motor is interrupted or cut off. The switch is replaceable on most dryer models but sometimes it is an integral or built-in part of the dryer motor and failure of the switch requires the replacement of the motor. Indicate the exact model number of the dryer for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

your motor maybe going out. theres a switch on the motor that starts it . on most models the start switch is built into the motor. however some models the switch can be replaced by itself.

Dryer button will not stay down. When you let go of the dryer button it stops. If I were to stand there and hold the button down it would stay one. While on it clicks


There is a centrifical switch in the motor that will only close once the motor is up to speed, the start button you push energises the starter winding, and once the motor is up to speed the run windings are energised by the centrifical switch.
The switch is not hard to replace but you will need the correct one, take the old one with you unless you'v got the complete model number from the motor.

Dryer drum won't start unless I manually push start the drum,  then it'll run fine. Turning the start knob just sounds like it want's to start. So right now I have to hold the start button, hold the...


unfortunatly it is either the motor or the drum bearings in the machine. if it is really hard to push i would suggest looking at all the bearings the drum rides on otherwise it is probably the motor that is getting weak.
