    I've replaced the front control panel, the thermal fuse, the dryer cord, the outlet works, I have another dryer plugged into it temporarily. It's still dead! The only thing that works is the light in the drum!

  • adrianne1 Sep 23, 2008

    So, how do I fix it?

  • adrianne1 Sep 23, 2008

    I had an electrical surge that created the problem with my dryer, thus asuming that the problem is electrical.

  • adrianne1 Sep 23, 2008

    From what I can gather, it could be the control board, thermistor, door switch, although it does click when shut, any other suggestions?

  • adrianne1 Sep 23, 2008

    $200 for Sears to come fix it. $200 for a repair and 1 year warranty, not 3. Really don't have an extra $200 right now. The same power surge fried my pc, stove, phones, several outlets along with the dryer. Kind of overload don't you think? I do remodeling for a living on my own rentals, but throw a computer board into the picture, and nobody knows how to repair it!!!

Having exactly the same problem however the only buton that works is The panel lock, if you keep it pressed for a few seconds it will beep and the led will light up. Otherwise nothing works. I checked the Front control panel switches according to the Service sheets, seems fine, changed the main control board, same thing.

    i think the best way is to take it to authorised service center to troubleshoot ur problem..because troubleshoot yourself and replacing electrical components is difficult if u have no experience in repairing electric components...wrong connection will create more surge and damage ur board in future...

    thank you ,

Kenmore elite he4 dryer wont run


Hi! crystal2hd
My he3 dryer does not have a door lock. The door switch turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. Make sure this switch is not damaged. Unplug the dryer before removing the front cover.

Kenmore HE4 no power to control, no sound, but the drum light bulb on when door opened


Another post reported replacing the power cord. I am trying to determine if this is a factory defect. Check the power at the power cord connections inside the dryer. You could have lost power on one leg and the other 120 volt leg is letting the light work. Let me know what the model and serial number is.
