The dryer will start when pushing The start button but after letting go of it it will turn off. The drum does not turn though. I pushed in the door button while pushing the start button and thats how i discovered that. If i remember right this one runs on bearings no belt. Any ideas?

You were correct it's GTD42EASJ0WW. So if I replace the belt that should fix the problem and the dryer should stay running and not turn off when I let go of the button?

*IF* the belt is broken the broken belt switch will stop the dryer from running when you let go of the start switch. The broken belt will have to be investigated by you or someone else.

I checked it out today the belt looked tight until I pulled on it then it pulled right off. Found a replacement today and got it installed and works just like new again. Thank you your video helped me out alot!
