How do I replace the start button on my Kenmore Series 80 dryer?

I have a Kenmore dryer model number 110.62822101. While the dryer was running, I opened the dryer door to take out some shirts to hang up (something I've done for years). When I closed the dryer door and pushed the start button to restart the dryer, it never restarted. I checked the dryer breakers. They were okay. I reset them anyway. I checked the dryer power cord connections. They were still solidly plugged in. I reset the dryer cycle/timer selector to the time I wanted for the remaining clothes to dry. I pushed the start button. The dryer did not restart. I repeated this process several times. We beleive that the push/start button is worn out. We have removed the back of the control panel to access the start button "power mechanism" for replacement. We can't figure out how to remove it. How can we remove the PUSH/START mechanism that the front panel button is attached to in order to replace it? Is there a way to check this out locally to see if this is indeed the problem?
