okay, this is very common on these dryers, the motor has failed, when you press the start button and hold it in and its stays running you are running off the start winding which overheat and trip your breaker, these are supposed to run on the run windings once the motor starts, the run winding are shot.you need to replace the motor,you can order this at the following link, they have the best warranty in the business. theres also a video link that shows you haw to replace this, http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drive-Motor/279827/2584?modelNumber=110.69622800?RCAID=1000065 thanks and best wishes, Bryan
