How do you determine when a dryer motor switch is bad?

The heating element on my Sears Kenmore electric dryer (Model 110.96281100) begins to warm up as soon as I turn the AutoDry selection dial and before activating the start button. I think it may need a new motor switch (#3388235) but would like to be more certain before ordering the part. Would appreciate any thoughts on narrowing my heater element problem.
