Dryer started turning back on when closing door, and timer clicking loudly when in off position.

Kenmore dryer, 110.67642600

Normally, the dryer stops when you open the door in the middle of a cycle,
and then when you close the door you have to push the button to restart it.
Suddenly, it starts back on it's own as soon as you close the door.
And the timer is clicking very loudly when dryer is off and timer is in the off position.
Both started at the same time today.

Hi,

Your push-to-start switch has welded contacts and you will need to replace it.

Here's the push-to-start switch for your model you can order:
WP3404233 Switch, Push to Start


There is a HOW TO video in the part link that shows you how to replace it.

Also, The timer points are stuck together if it won't shut off in the OFF position. You will need a new timer too.

Here's the timer for your model you can order:
WP3976576 Timer

Well, the dryer itself shuts off when the timer is in the off position,
but the timer keeps clicking away very loudly, almost like it's trying to turn but can't.

Is the stuck push to start switch causing that?
