My dryer door wont stay shut while drying


Hello Debbie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

1.) It sounds like you have a bad door latch. These are easily replaced. With a small flat head screw driver just wedge them out.

Cost: $7.00

2.) You may also have a broken door switch. Push in on the white button to make sure it goes in. Check the contactor on the door to make sure it is not bent.

Cost: $24.00.

3.) Also, check your door seal to ensure it is not coming off from wear.

Kenmore dryer he3 lockout wil not let it start


On most models of Kenmore HE3 dryers, you will need to press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 deliberate seconds or until the lock is disabled. Some models have different controls. The directions for this control lock are normally printed on the console under the button that is used to enable and disable the control lock. If holding this button does not work, then you could have a failed user interface control or a bad control board.

Elite HE3 Steam™ 8674 Dryer: my kenmore elite he3 dryer will lite up, but when...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

HE3 dryer stops drying with code E1


Hi, how are ya?

The E1 is a thermistor problem. It's a little black fuse that's next to the thermal fuse on the duct housing.

It's pretty easy to fix. You need to take the bottom pannel off and then the black blower housing.

Good luck :)
