One more bit of information. The dryer does stop when I open the door or when I disconnect the power cord. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You did not state if the timer is advancing to the OFF position or not. You also did not indicate if the dryer will shut off when you manually advance the timer to the OFF position or not. If you open the dryer door is should also stop running.

Your model gas dryer does not use a "Power Resistor". If you have to unplug the dryer in order to stop the dryer from running then there is likely a short in the wire harness or the timer is mis-wired. If the push to start switch was shorted or stuck, the dryer would still shut off by advancing the timer to OFF or by opening the door. I added a wiring diagram of your model in the image below. I traced the motor circuit in blue, red and black.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer if you have the timer wired/connected properly.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
