Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
We need to hold the button to run the dryer and not sure if it's some kind of sensor problem. there is heat coming out when we hold it down so I'm not sure what the problem is.
The start button starts the motor heater and energizes a relay that latches closed to keep the motor and heater running untill the timer switch or door switch cut the power to the relay and the relay opens.
The latching relay has failed or disconnected
if all the cables are attached to the relay
not an expensive item, good for another 10years
