A:

Thank you for your question to SearsPartsDirect.com and for being a valued member.

I apologize that your having trouble with your Kenmore Electric Dryer Model number 11060982990.

The timer is a part that over use and time can go out. If it works intermittently  that means its going out. For your Kenmore Electric Dryer Model number 11060982990 there is a complete timer assembly available.  Here’s the link to the timer.

If its just the heat that is not holding constant temperature and the timer works as the dryer runs the full cycle your heating element might be going out. Here’s the link to the heating element.

Q:

Will not keep runing after pressing start button 11060982990 Kenmore Electric dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 11060982990 and the problem with the motor not continuing to run can be caused by a failed motor relay, a wiring failure in the start sense wire connection or a failed electronic control board. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the image below. The run voltage supply for the motor is traced in blue. When the start button is pressed, it bypasses the open motor relay through the circuit traced in red. This is why the motor will start and run with the push-to-start button pressed. Normally, the electronic control board will sense the start voltage through the start-sense wire (traced in green). When start voltage is sensed, the control board applies 48 volts DC through the pink/black wires (traced in pink) to shut and hold the motor relay closed so that run voltage is completed through the circuit traced in blue. This explains the possible failures mentioned above. If you have a broken start-sense wire then the board will not detect run voltage and will not apply the DC voltage through the pink/black wires to shut and hold closed the motor relay. If the control board is bad, it may be getting the 120 volts AC of start voltage through the start-sense wire but may not be applying the 48 volts DC through the motor relay. You could also have a failed motor relay that is getting the proper DC voltage but failing to shut and/or stay closed to apply run voltage through the circuit. 

Check the start-sense wire to make sure that it is properly connected.

This dryer uses the same relay for the motor and the heater. Since two relays rarely fail at the same time, you can unplug the dryer and switch the motor and heater relays to see if the dryer will stay running. Information in the images below the wiring diagram should help you access the relays in the console and switch them. If the dryer runs properly with the relays switched, then replacing the failed relay should fix your problem. If not, then the control board is your likely failure (assuming that the start-sense wire is okay). 

These tips will likely help you resolve your motor problem in the dryer. Your dryer may heat properly once you get this problem fixed. It is rare to have 2 failures at once. If the dryer does not heat after fixing the motor problem, I recommend that you resubmit your question with additional details.
