My GE dryer won't run unless I'm holding the push to start button. Where do I start trying to figure out the issue? Push to start button? Belts?

Assuming there are no electronic controls in the model (I don't see any in its parts list) that symptom can be caused by a contract in the timer no longer making contact. The PTS switch effectively bypasses the timer contact temporarily. In such a case the timer would usually have to be replaced to correct the condition.

I don't have access to the machine's wiring diagram (# 31-16251) to see if there might be any other possible causes on it.
