... will run with the dryer door open and without pressing the push to start button...

... sometimes in the middle of the night it turns on by itself

1) The Drum Motor won't run unless the Door Switch is bad AND the Start Switch is bad

2) if it starts when Timer is set to OFF ...all of the above AND the Timer is bad

OR there is a wiring short somewhere

Sears says it's Wiring Sheet - 8576801
