When I press the start button, the tumbler starts spinning, and I can hear the flames ignite (the clothes do get dry too). When I release the start button, everything stops. I need to put duct tape over the button for the clothes to dry.
I can hear a relay engage when I press the button as well. The dryer door switch is working fine. I can make the dryer start/stop by pressing/releasing this.
Is this a common problem with Whirlpool dryers? It's only 5-6 years old.
I would like to see if I can fix this myself, I'm fairly handly with home repairs.
thanks for any help.
