I have a kenmore elite quit pac 2 that wont stay running unless you hold the start button down. I dont have much money to fix it but cant afford to buy a new one. What can I do?


  • firstly dont hold your finger on the button
  • by doing this you are running the motor on the start winding
  • this winding is for momentary operation only, just to get things started.
  • You must have a fault in the run circuit of the motor.
  • To save your dryer. dont use it till you get someone who can fix the run circuit. It may only be contact failure, or jammed up with lint.
  • Good luck

Kenmore Elite electric dryer, no heat, runs if holding start ****


with this combination of problems it sounds like a power problem on the control board being you have more than one problem,it sounds as though you arn't getting a latch voltage at the relay energizing coils that latch the relays to power the motor and element

My Kenmore dryer "Start" button does not stay depressed.


a complete model # from inside the door would be helpful, on wost dryers when this occures the motor is packed with lint so the sentrifisle switch cant move from the pastion to the run or the switch on the motor itself is bad, the run windings in the motor could be bad. some of thethe more complicated dryers have a relay on their control board than burns out. try blowing out the motor with compressed air or the blow end of a shop vac use the skinney attat. to concentrate air

Dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.


most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Did you have any lights at all on the panel? I just took off the User Interface as going through the troubleshooting guide I found underneath the control panel led me to that solution.
