Kenmore Starts but Won't Stay On
« on: August 04, 2010, 02:32:31 PM »

This is a Sears Kenmore 70 series, model 110.62722101 electric dryer.

The problem is that the dryer will not start when the 'Push to Start' button is pushed in.

However, it will start and run when the switch is held in, but only for a little bit.

Any ideas on where and what to start checking?
Thank you.

Thank you.
I was hoping for a bad relay or something.
