Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dryer today. Unfortunately the only thing that can cause your dryer to run as soon as the dryer door is shut would be a stuck relay on the main control board just behind the control panel. This control board will need to be ordered and replaced to resolve the issue so below is a link to the part you'll need to order for your model number.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
