When we push the start button the dryer runs and fires only if you hold it on. It quits if you let the button up. I replaced the ignitor, flame sensor and coils. I have checked thermal fuse, and 2 thermostats. I think it has to do with the start relay but don't know how to remove or check to see if is is functioning.

I finally got the start relay switch out. There is a bar you lift up and then twist it and it comes out. I pulled the switch apart and found that the coil wire was broken. I got a new switch relay and installed and it works like a champ

Yeah, it is not intuitively obvious. Thanks for the update, because this is a common problem.
