Problem: When we push the white button to start the dryer, the dryer starts, but does not keep working. Sometimes it stops immediately after starting, sometimes it works for 10 seconds, sometimes as long as a minute. If we stand next to the dryer and keep the button pressed, the dryer DOES continue to work. We have tried taping the button down, but the tape eventually loses a bit of its stickiness and the dryer stops working. We have checked the ducts/vents outside the house and behind the dryer. They are clear. The dryer does have heat. In fact, the dryer seems very hot (unusually hot) inside. Even when we set it to "air fluff/no heat" the dryer seems hot inside.
