If you can turn the Dryer on even with the door open you have a bad door switch.The door switch is located on the dryer body so that when you close the dryer door it activates the switch.Be sure to turn off the power to the dryer and pull the electric plug before trying replace the switch.

My dryer will not turn off! The drum keeps turning even when I open the door! Help!


You need a new door switch.

Google
Make Model door Switch.

Presumably you can turn it off with the timer. If not, you need one of those too.

The door actuator mounted on the door or the switch mounted on the dryer is missing or broken. The dryer is supposed to stop if the door is opened. Replace the door actuator or the switch.

How to replace door switch on old kenmore stac.dryer 110.88752792


Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.Check online for the part repairclinic.com has it for $14.00 not bad

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.
