--Bad motor run windings
--bad motor switch
These are two possibilities.How old is the dryer. may not be worth it. get the model# from the dryer & price a motor. (new motor cures both of these possibilities)

Start button starts dryer and dryer stops when button is released.


Ge dryers have a belt sensing switch inside that won't let the dryer run (just as you describe) when the belt breaks or comes off. My guess is you broke a belt. With door open---hold in button door switch and hit the start switch to get it too run a few seconds. Watch the drum and see if it turns. My guess it will not. Belt is a long skinny band that goes all around the drum outer area and then down around the motor.

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.


First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

Our dryer doesn't stay on when you hit the start button. It turns off when you release the button.


The seal in ccircuit for run usually goes through a switch in the motor, whitch if it sticks or the switch goes bad, it wont stay running.

Not sure of model but dryer does not stay running when switch is released. As long as you hold switch on it runs and when you release it shuts off. Suggestions?


Check the belt is not broken . If the drum turns when you start it then either the belt switch is bad or the motor switch is not working because it is bad or the motor may be full of lint.

Clothes Dryer won't stay on after switch is depressed.


some of them dryers have a switch other than the push button located behind the console. it also has an identical heat switch beside it. if that holding switch is bad it will not stay running. of the two identical switches the run switch is on the left. good kuck.

Whirlpool 110 electric dryer will not keep running


When you press the start button you complete a circuit bringing the juice into your dryer to run the motor the igniter or heating elements and what ever else goes whee when your dryer is drying. So if you press the button to complete the circuit then when you let go of the button it would stand to reason that it break that flow and shut it all down. However in a dryer there is something of a centrifugal switch that kicks in and keeps that circuit open and flowing with juice once the drum begins to turn and you let go of the button. That's why in a normal situation if you don't hold the button down long enough the dryer will cut right back off or if you open the door to the dryer to throw something in and close it before it quits turning it will stay running. Sounds like you could add this centrifugal switch to the list of possible culprits in this mystery. O7OUT

Dryer On Switch


If you're really lucky it may be a broken or burnt off wire at the motor, but more likely you have a bad motor. When you push the start button you are energizing the start winding on the motor, but if there is no circuit through the run winding the motor will not continue to run when you release the button. Could be a bad run winding or the centrifugal switch is not resetting when the motor stops. Either way you are most likely looking at a new motor (expensive and usually a pain to install) or replacing the dryer. Sorry for the bad news. (remember good advice = fixya rating)

New Dryer Belt


The switch on motor is sticking or broke. You can try cleaning lint from motor and around switch. (Box with wires going to it on motor.) If this doesn't work you probably need a motor.l
