Re: Kenmore elite H3 dryer

You may have a bad thermister. I usually just replace them. Also could be a door switch.

I have the Kenmore He4. All the lights are working but when I push normal and start, I get a loud click and beep but nothing happens. All the lights seem to work normally.


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Did you resolve the issue with the Kenmore Elite H3 Dreyer of just beeping and not turning on? I can be reached at the email below - Thanks - It lights up and just a beep and a clickng noise when you hit...

There's a thermal fuse located on the blower housing that blows when the vents and ducts are clogged or when the thermistor, also on the blower housing, fails. This thermal fuse is wired in series with the motor and if blown, power to the motor is terminated causing it no to run. The motor activates the heating circuit through the motor centrifugal switch only when the motor runs. No dryer function works then when the motor cannot run.

Access then bypass the thermal fuse and if the dryer runs, the thermal fuse is indeed blown. Make sure the vents and ducts are clear then replace the thermal fuse including the thermistor to address the problem. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse blown due to fire hazards.

When I push start it beeps 3 times. Lights on the right work, lights on the far left don't light up.

Alright, pretty unconventional, but simple and Genius on my part!!! Not sure if we're talking about the same models, but I was cruising this site with the same problem.... K, so it's making three beeps right? Check inside the DRYER (maybe same issue w/ washer, I dunno), but there's a button on the top-inside.... DEPRESS THAT BUTTON, and while holding it down, START THE DRYER (HOLD TO START), if it starts working, this tip is for you!

1) on the opposite side, where the door depresses that same button on the dryer door... you ready for this... see step two ;)

2) SUPER GLUE A PENNY IN THAT INDENTATION PART, your problem is there's not enough connection, and the door is no longer holding that same button down...

3) TA DAH!! Since a repair guy could've charged ya like 50+ bucks, I'll take... emmm.. 25$, email me at on where to send the check, or just shoot me an email to say thanks ;)

Dryer isn't working

I had success.  I found the manual....unplugged the dryer, and rotated the inside drum several times to check for any coins or small objects.  I did not find anyything, but if something small was lodged it is not hampering the dryer.  I plugged it back in and it worked right away...

Kenmore HE2 Dryer makes three beeps but wont start

What happens is that the door switch gets turned inside. I just took mine apart because of the same problems listed. The switch has a tab inside that has to make contact with the internal switch. I pulled mine apart and turned it so it made contact...put it back together and it works fine now. After doing all that it seems like you could turn the swith from the outside a quarter turn with a pair of pliers and accomplish the same thing.
