problem with the motor not staying on when the push-to-start button is pushed is the motor relay. The motor relay is not working to close and complete the
motor circuit and this can be verified by bypassing the motor relay.
Disconnect power to the dryer then pull the end cap trims off then remove the control panel securing screws. Once the screws are removed, rotate the control panel up to the rear of the dryer.
Disconnect the motor relay contact wires (pink with black stripe) then tape them together and insulate properly. Refer to the component layout diagram for the location of thKenmore electric dryer Model 63932: - cb4fbf7.jpg />
Do the same with the heater relay contact wires (piKenmore electric dryer Model 63932: - 2e8938c.jpgte stripe) also to verify if it's the one causing the dryer not heating.
Replace the relay if bypassing it makes the dryer work properly.
Check the continuity of the thermal cut-off if bypassing the heater relay still doesn't make the dryer heat up. Replace the thermal cut-off if blown together with the high-limit thermostat. Do not use the dryer with any of the components bypassed due to fire hazards.
