Kenmore dryer model 110.74994300 push start does not stay on

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.
Kenmore Whirlpool Dryer Won Start Easy Fix
Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

When you push the start button, the dryer turns on, but shuts off when you let go of the button. Dryer does not stay on, When you continuously hold the button in the "on " position, the dryer operates...

There is a switch on the motor that is active when the motor gets to speed. Either the switch is bad or the motor is not getting up to proper speed.

The switch is bad and need to be replaced. Holding the switch in the on position may cause it to burn, thus causing a fire so please do not hold it in manually.
