Kenmore Elite Dryer 61062 needs a guru

This baby has been working fine since 2000 purchase, then one day when pressing start, it just beeps at me... taken apart and ran thru the button checking cycle.... all is well except for the start..... do I need a new circut board or can it be fixed by a somewhat talented laundry lady??

thanks

    The door seems to be working ok, the model number is 110 61062000



    What about the washer now on the blink.... it is a Calypso Kenmore Elite Model 110 210620000



    It will wash but when it comes to the spin cycle..... it quits.... just sits there and laughs at me.... am I destined to wear dirty clothes??

You may have a defective door latch switch as well. This is the push button switch located inside the door frame. It toggles (pushes in) when the door is closed, shuts the drum light off, and enables the circuitry to allows the drive motor to work. If this button is not making contact properly, the dryer will just beep when you attempt to start it. I mention this just in case you may have overlooked it.

However, if you have determined that you defintely have a bad start switch on the operator console, the switches are generally not sold as a separate part. Most of the push button type consoles for the Kenmore Elites have a keypad as part of an operator interface board inside the front panel. You will need to replace the interface board in order to correct the problem as these boards generally are not serviceable. If you post back with your COMPLETE model number, I can look up the part information for you. I hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite HE4 beeps three times when start panel is pressed and wont turn on


FWIW ... the Sears guy came by yesterday. The problem was apparently that the door latch was not operating to the extent that the sensors thought the door was open. He is replacing the latch next week. He adjusted the old one in the mean tiome and it appears to be working fine.

This kind of stunned me, since my wife reported an electric zap and the interior light burned out as the dryer went dead -- so I was sure it would be a fried circuit board -- but, no, a little jiggling of the latch seemed to clear it up....
