Question about Dryers
Problem with Kenmore Elite 7.0 cu. ft. HE3 Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer Control Lights blink, but it doesn't turn on Details Kenmore Elite Smarthaet Quiet Pak4 HE3 Model: 110.87872601 Ser: MW0301889 Type: DADT-ELE-2406024-EL54 W10132082 A When it does turn on, it turns off after about 5 minutes, and I can't get it to turn back on. The control lights blink on and off a few times, and that is it. I did get an F70 message when the lights blinked on for a minute. I tried turning off the breakers for about 5 minutes after unplugging the dryer, then turned them back on. The dryer started, but turned off again after 10 minutes. It seems like it is getting too hot and is sensing that, or it is something electrical. PLEASE HELP!!! I need my dryer!! THANKS!!!!
Might be a2 things: Vent blockage causing overheat OR bad thermistor. Repair clinic shows how to replace it:

This is something your going to need a service tech for. The error is taking place within the control console itself and the console my need to be replaced.

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

Your drum rollers is in need of lubrication.
You can lube them with a high quality machine oil like 3inOne oil.
