I have a kenmore dryer that is about 4 years old and the problem is when I press the start button the motor runs and it should stay on, but the minute I release the start button it shuts off. I checked the thermal fuse and got continuity. I Thank you for your help in this matter. Domo arigato.

If your dryer is a Whirlpool/Kenmore, the culprit is this little boogar, the Even Heat Control Board. It’s located in your dryer’s control console, you’ll have to open it up to get to it. This parts breakdown of the control console will help you–it’s item 13.
Awwite, go fix your dryer.
