The switch is fine
the switch in all dryers triggers a relay, that then latches and supplies current to motor and heater, until deactivated by door switch or timer switch
inside the control panel,
trace the wires from the start switch to the first device
press start button but wont stay on - c27eaf9.jpgmay be opaque.
ensure that the wires are all connected.
if all are connected replace relay
the local part store will have the relay it is common to most dryers
Cant give exact instructions, no experience with particular model

Amana dryer ned4600yq the dryer starts when the start button is pressed but doesn't stay on once the start button is released.


From what you describe, it could be several different problems. Rarely is it the push to start switch. The most likely scenario is that the centrifugal switch on the motor is not working correctly. The other scenario would be the timer. There should be a schematic located somewhere inside the control console. Look for the wires that go to the motor's centrifugal switch and the start button. Jumper the centrifugal switch on the motor so that the dryer thinks the motor is turning all the time. Then, test it by powering it on and pushing the start button. If the motor keeps running, then it's the centrifugal switch, if it shuts off, then it's most likely the timer.

Good luck!

Lightning hit our house a month ago and the dryer was running. It stopped and now the start button won't stay engaged l We have to push the button to make it run and tape it in the run position,


your missing the voltage from the control panel timer to energize the relay to keep it energized after you push it to make it start,you need to trace this back to the control panel timer possibly thru a resistor that could have burned open due to power outage and probably replace
