The dryer starts and works properly but only if the start button is held down. We put duct tape over the start button to hold it down and it works fine. I thought it was the switch but after replacing the switch, it still does not work. Any thoughts about what to do next?

Its likely a bad belt switch.

Look here:
Here's that Belt/Idler pulley switch for this model:
Switch WD21X10261


Watch this video to access it:


Watch this video to ohm test that switch:


Let us know how it goes.
