Hello, When I start my Kenmore elec dyer, regardless if the cycle is timed or moisture sensing, it will run then it stops. When I push the start button again it runs but as soon as I let go of the start button it stops. This happens regardless of temp setting too. I am able to get it started if I turn timer to off, open and close door and restart. I don't know if it might be the timer, start button or something else. What do I need to do?
ANSWER Hello Mike,
Based on the information provided it sounds like the centrifugal switch is bad on the motor. To replace you will have to replace the motor 279787 on unit.
