Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis 6808 Electric Dryer
My Kenmore dryer runs when I push the ''Start'' button, but the button will not stay depressed.
What is the fix?
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

If it's a button problem as you describe, then you probably need to replace the control interface board. Unfortunately it's a common problem with Kenmore dryers.
