Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
Two lights remain on even after the lint screen and exhaust hose were cleaned. Have not yet dismantled the lower front of the dryer to see what is below. Will try that also. How will I know if the electric panel has a problem? Will cleaning out the bottom of the dryer resolve my problem?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.
2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.
3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).
4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.
You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.
NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

When dryer won't heat or won't turn on or will behave as its behaving with you it means that the Thermal fuse which is located inside duct on the back has gone bad and should be replaced as it cannot be reset. If their is continuity when you check the fuse then it means that the control board is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
