Kenmore elite 11084832200 tech sheet

In your post below you say that you can get a tech sheet, could you get one for me please?mmontana@sanjuan.edu Comment posted on Apr 08, 2008 Mdpjr,
Follow the advice I have posted and it should lead you in the right direction. If you need further assistance, please pst back and let me know.

PS There should be a tech sheet inside the dryer that will assist you parts location and troubleshooting. I believe you may have to remove the top panel to get to it. It's usually mounted to the side of the casing on the inside of the dryer. If you don't have one, let me know and I can tell you where to get one.

SOURCE: How to remove a back panel of maytag neptune dryer?

You have a choice for which side front door should be on this model. There are 4 screws on front door. Take all 4 screws and pull down the front panel. You will see two metal parts each side which holds top panel. Remove two screws and metal parts. Now you can push up the top panel.

If the dryer turns on, drum spins, but you have no heat, any of the following components could be bad:

Heating Element
Thermal Cut-Out
Hi-Limit Thermostat

All these components COMBINED, should cost less than $100. If you fix it yourself, you will avoid the additional cost for labor.


If the dryer isn't blowing ANY air at all, but the drum still turns, you may have a bad blower fan assembly inside the dryer. Or, the blower fan assembly may be clogged.

If your dryer performance has been failing (i.e., clothes taking longer to dry), it may be for a reason. You need to ask yourself when the last time you cleaned the dryer ventilation. If you can't remember, or if it has never been done, this can contribute to the dryer failing. All dryers need proper air flow in order to dry clothes properly. If the ducting becomes clogged, the heating circuits will actually overheat and eventually fail. This usually results in the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) blowing or the Heating Element failing or BOTH. When these components fail, they must be replaced.
Remove the dryer hose from the back of the dryer and inspect it thoroughly from where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. It should be clear with no kinks or clogs. If your vent line runs under a crawl space make sure it is suspended above the ground and has no sags where lint could collect. RULE OF THUMB: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent duct, the BETTER. After you inspect the vent ducting, turn the dryer on and make sure you have forceful air flow coming form the dryer. This will prove that your blower fan is working properly or not. Since you stated that your dryer is not currently heating, the air will be cold, but you should still have some force behind it. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the duct work INSIDE the dryer. It is important to keep a dryer checked routinely. I recommend once per season (that's 4 times per year). Dryers are the cause of many house fires. These fires are due to lint accumulations inside the unit catching on fire. A little preventive maintenance can prevent significant problems in the future.
Getting to the heating circuit to determine if the components are good or bad is the next step. If your dryer has the lint screen on the top of the unit, you will need to remove the back panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits. If the dryer has the lint screen in the door:

a. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side.
b. On models with no lower kick panel, lift the dryer top and remove the screws that hold the front panel in place.
c. The Kenmore Elite & Whirlpool Duet have a couple of screws under the bottom edge of the panel under the door that you need to remove.

NOTE: The heating circuit should be troubleshot with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present with the dryer turned off. Resistance readings are as follows:

Heating Element (located inside heater box) – remove the two RED leads from the ceramic terminals on the heating element and take a reading across the terminal points. It should read 9 - 13 ohms.

Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) (mounted to the heater box.) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

Hi-Limit Thermostat (mounted to the heater box, closest to the heating element leads) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

If any of the above readings are abnormal, replace the component. NOTE: If the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is defective it is highly recommended by most manufacturers to replace BOTH components at the same time. They are often sold as a set.


I hope this information is helpful to you. Post back with comments if you have any further questions.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric dryer, not getting any power

Hi,
I had the same problem with my gas dryer and after some research found out that the control board is usually the problem. I'm guessing this is the same problem for the gas and electric problem.
I also found out that Whirlpool has a new part # out to replace the problematic board.
I found these new updated boards for sale on ebay. I bought one for about $100 and after a few loads it's still working.
The procedure is simple, after unplugging the dryer, it just takes 7 screws to remove and about 6 things to unplug on the board. I recommend labeling the connectors or take a photo before you unplug things for reference.
It took me about 30 minutes to do this fix.

SOURCE: How do I take the front panel off my kenmore elite

The E1 displayed indicates the thermistor is open and needs to be replaced.

The connections can be loose but the most likely cause of an E1 error is a bad thermistor.

The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills and have access to a volt/ohm meter you can check and replace this part yourself.

The thermistor is available from the following: www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model # in the appropriate box to get a full parts break-down and diagrams.

To access the thermistor see the image below.

Remember to unplug the dryer from power first.

The thermistor will have a black and red/white wire on it.

You can check continuity across it with the meter and if the circuit is open then the thermistor needs to be replaced.



When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.

When the thermistor circuit is shorted (

Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.

The thermistor -may- check ok when cool and freak out when warm!

My Kenmore Elite dryer keeps beeping..just going through the end of cycle alarm-high,low,off...anyone have any suggestions. Now no panel lights, drum light on with door open, off when closed.


it sounds like you have a bad computer board.every time i saw a dryer that beeps on it's own it was a bad board and now you say you have no lights.most likely it's the board.there should be a tech sheet that will tell you how to get the machine into diagnostics,also you can try to unplug it for like 15 minutes and plug it back in,sometimes it will reset the board just like a house computer but if you have no lights it might not reset.remove the bottom panel the tech sheet should be taped to the back of it or in that area.

My dryer has stoped providing heat. Checked the ignitor and it does not glow. What part has failed?


It could be the fuse which mounts on the blower next to the thermistor which judges temp or the thermistor itself could be open. Or the flame detection sensor might be open and not allowing power to the ignitor.

Kenmore Elite electric dryer runs, no heat, all tests in the tech sheet passed


Hi

I believe that everything else is fine rather it is the thermal fuse that is located inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct that is bad and should be replaced. If you want you can test this fuse for continuity and if it is bad then it should be replaced, as it cannot be reset. If the fuse is fine then it can be due to the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Locked controls


If you are referring to the Control Lock on a Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore Elite, or Maytag Epic series front loader, this is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

The following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.

If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more significant problem other than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue).
NOTE: Each one of these washers come with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot if you cannot get the control panel to unlock.

Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore elite He 4 model number 11085087400


Sorry to take so long getting back to you. 4E is a door latch error code. It means your door latch is not working. Double check the wiring to make sure you don't have any loose or broken connections. More than likely, you will have to replace the switch. This is not one of your standard error codes that you will find in any tech sheet. I have experienced this problem before. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, you can find a replacement listed under the "Cabinet Parts" heading as item number 41 (part number 8519323). HINT: If you order this as item number 19 (part number 8283288) it also includes the wire harness. I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Good luck to you.
