Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
Light works inside dryer
no lights work on control panel
This is a process so right down everything, remove the 3 screws on the rear of the dryer for the top panel. Be sure you unplug the machine first before attempting this as high voltage is present. The front user panel is clipped to the chassis and we need to check two items. First the wire harness from the motor control unit to the panel and how well is the board attached to the panel. Look inside and you will see catchs bottom and top, with carefull lifting up and out the top loosens and then the bottom. We want to check the assembly and how well the wires are attached. If all looks sound unplug the board from the motor control unit and replug the unit. Now reattach to the chassis, make sure all is clear of the top and plug it in. Try to power up the unit, if not the panel is dead.
From when you mentioned the dryer light worked I know power is there for the board but I will not say off hand just buy a board, test always look for loose panels and wires then we go broke buying the part. Last is the machine new? If less than a year call sears, 1800for my home and have them fix it!

SOURCE: Where's the power source...
He most likely want you to check the power at the wall plug...Red to white 120v black to white 120v and Red to black 240v... if you have it at the wall check the other end of the pig tail .. make sure a wire is not burn off at the terminal block...

SOURCE: dryer wont run but lights are on
check the door switch.or you may need to replce the main control panel. but you also need to check the thermal fuses inside the dryer cabinet,one of those can be bad.
