If you hold Start Switch, will the Motor stay running ?

YES, bad Centrifugal Switch (or Lint) on Motor

NO, bad Motor, or lots of friction, not letting Motor get up to speed

 

Try it again with the Belt or Drum removed

Check the blower to make sure it's clear, no panty hoses or anything dragging it.  

 

If blower is clear, replace the motor:  http://www.repaircli...er=110.76742501

And install the maintenance kit while your at it:  http://www.repaircli...er=110.76742501

It'll be like a new dryer when you're done.
