I'm just not an appliance man.
The safety switch went out on my dryer.
It was the one that turns the dryer off when you open the door.
It acted similar. I un-plugged the dryer, removed the switch and spliced the wires together. It worked fine until the switch came in.
I don't recommend trying this to anyone. But, this worked for me for the short term. Turn the dryer off and unplug it before you remove any covers.
