SOURCE: Kenmore HE4 Electric Dryer runs as soon as you plug it in, doesn't heat and display isn't lit

Make sure that the cord is installed correctly make sure that the white wire is in the middle of the red and black wires. Other than that it sounds like a Main computer issue.

SOURCE: panel control

Check to see it he belt is good, there is a kill switch on the belt which will stop the operation. Could be a broken belt or bad switch. Spin the drum if it is too easy then it is the belt.

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

I have the same indications. It power up intermittently with the check lint LED lit. The manual said it will (lintLED) turn off when the start button is press but only gives me a beep when I press start. Lint LED only turn off when I open door. The dryer will function normally. I disassembled lint assemby and clean it thoroughly, including moisture sensor. I run a diagnostics, all LED lit with 88 displayed on panel. The second 8 flash with a continous beep. I check the power cord and removed panel but have not done a continuity check. The dryer is working now.

SOURCE: Broken door handle

Hi, there should be two screws holding the handle. I looked up my suppliers and this would need to be ordered. The cost is between 21 and 29 dollars, depending on color.

If I can assist you further, please let me know. I can order the part.

I have Kenmore electric dryer. When I start dryer the drum spins for couple of cycles and stops. I found out that all rollers, and pully are free to rotate but motor is too hard to turn. So I replaced

if it shuts down and then comes back on, there may be a loose wire in the connector, when the connections are weak, wires overheat, and overload protection kicks in. just an idea for you.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer and it is not heating up. I changed the coil and cleaned out the lint. Is there a reset button?

If it isn't heating up but running otherwise, you probably blew the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is often blown by the high limit thermostat going bad, and thus may need to be replaced also.

Kenmore HE4 - no heat

Check the following to address this issue.

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

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.
