I have a kenmore dryer that has to have the push to start button held constantly to activate the motor and there is no power going to ignitor, coils. I'm hoping it is just a relay or something and not a circuit board. Is there a way to test this. What is the problem most of the time when this occurs? Thanks for any input.

I have to do it in a couple days when I can get there. so if I switch the heat and motor relays and the motor stays on then it's the relay? If it doesn't then is it a good chance of it being the circuit board?

So I swapped the motor and heat relays and the motor will still not stay on without pts button pressed. Are the odds pretty good that it's the circuit board? Thanks

The new circuit board fixed the problem. Drives me crazy that it could be a $3.00 piece on the circuit board that I could solder on to repair it and I have to replace the whole thing. Thanks for the guidance.
