GE dryer starts but..... stops

What you describe is either a failed evenheat board or a failed motor relay.
Please post the complete model number from the machine and I can help you narrow it down. There should be a wiring diagram inside the console with voltage checks also.

Kenmore Elite electric dryer model # 110.64994300\r\n I'm pretty sure I need to replace the push to start switch because it starts when I push it but stops when I take my finger off of it. So I held it...

I don't believe replacing the switch is going to fix the problem. provided the power cord is wired correctly you have a control board issue. Their is a small micro computer in the the console that will cause your exact concern start while holding the button the stops, and no heat.

Clothes Dryer won't stay on after switch is depressed.

some of them dryers have a switch other than the push button located behind the console. it also has an identical heat switch beside it. if that holding switch is bad it will not stay running. of the two identical switches the run switch is on the left. good kuck.

Push to start switch only works when held in.

Hi, THe control panel has an end cap that needs to be popped off. Just pull the end cap from the top and it should release. Then you will find a screw on each end that needs to be removed. Now the control panel will raise up and rest on the hinges.
This switch should not have an effect on heating.
Remove the front lower front panel and you can test the heating element. Check voltage to the element and you should get 240V. If there is now voltage, check each of the thermostats and the fuse for continuity. If the thermostats or fuse have no continuity, replace it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Push to start switch only works when held in.

Go thru the back to access the push to start via 1/4 inch screws. More than likely the push to start isnt the problem with the heat issue. i would lean towards the motor relay and the heater relays that are on this unit

Kenmore Elec. Dryer Model 66912 (1996)

The problem is the motor switch . Try spinning the drum with the door switch held in and pressing the start button all at the same time .If the problem is lint in the switch that might be all you have to do . If that don't work you will need to replace the motor and no special tool required. I can walk you through it.
