I have the Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 110.76722695 that will sometime only run if the start button is held down.  This only happens sometimes but when it does I tape down the button and it drys fine. What do I need to test?  I have read several places that it could be the motor but I just replaced it less than 6 month ago. Is it the actual start button? Any help and direction will be greatly appreciated.

Could be a bad push to start switch, also could be a motor. Since the push to start switch is under $20 it's worth a try before you waste time and money on another new motor.

  It's not the start switch. The switch is only momentary contact and yours is working. The problem is either the motor switch or the wiring to it. When you press the start button, the motor starts, closing the centrifugal switch which then parallels the start button so that the dryer remains running when you release the button..

Yeah, Eric, you're right. I haven't had that failure happen in a long time.
