Major Appliances/Kenmore electric dryer


    I have a Kenmore electric dryer model no. 66722690.
Lately, if you open the door to check a load, the dryer starts back when you  reclose the door....even without pushing the PUSH TO START button.  I am scared that this is a fire hazard.  Please help!!!!Thank you...

ANSWER: From a fresh load. if that is the case, when you turn the timer knob to a dry setting....does the dryer start without pushing the start button?

Waiting to hear from you,
