Stops and all the lights come on


Instructions
    • 1 Make sure the home's gas supply valve is turned on. Check your Maytag owner's manual to find the location of the dryer's gas shut-off valve. This is usually behind the dryer's front panel or in the back of the unit. Open the valve to allow gas to flow into the dryer.
    • 2 Open the lower front panel of the dryer to access the pilot light assembly. Press and hold the starter button as you light the pilot with a handheld lighter. If you have trouble getting it to light, release the starter button and wait a few minutes before trying it again. Once the pilot is lit, hold the starter button down for another minute to make sure it will stay burning.

    • 3 Close the dryer's front panel and run a test cycle to see if it is producing heat. Call a repairman to evaluate the problem if lighting the pilot did not restore the heat.

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 Kenmoor dryer will not start. When pushing the


send model number, an even heat board would cause this,or you can unplug dryer and open console on top and see if the even heat board is in there,check it for burn marks,there should be a tech sheet in the console that will help you out but put it back,if you have to call someone in to work on your dryer and the tech sheet is gone they might not be able to help you, there is a relay part 3405281 could be in there,there are actually two of them,there is a heat relay and a motor relay,you can change them out as they are the same part and see if motor stays running,if so change out the motor relay, but i need model number to look up your dryer
