Kenmore Elite gas dryer 11072982101
« on: February 22, 2019, 03:27:58 PM »

Having the following problem with the dryer:  When the timer is set and start button if pushed in, the drum begins turning like a normal start up. However, when the button is released the drum/dryer stops. I had one person tell me this was the door switch but I thought if the door switch was shot, the drum wouldn't spin at all. The drum does not turn if start is pushed with the door is open but with the door shut or the lever pushed in it does, so the switch seems to be completing the circuit.

Any help or ides are greatly appreciated!

I do not have a wiring diagram for this unit but you are correct about the door switch.

You really need the wiring diagram to figure out what keeps the dryer running after the push to start switch is released.

Take a look in the control console often they store a copy of it there.

WP3405281 You have one of these for the heater and the motor.Swap them out and see if the motor stays running.

If you swap out the relays and you still have no joy then the Even heat control is a known source of pain .

BTW just because sears parts shows a part to be NLA does not mean it is true . Check with your favorite Appliance parts supplier to confirm it .
