Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore catalyst electric dryer. about 3 yrs old.

Just hooked up 220 electric and plugged it in. Nothing on the digital board works. No beeps, no lights, nothing. Thought may have not had power hooked up but light on inside works fine. Dryer did sit out in the cold for a few days but I let it warm up for about an hour before plugging it in to let the circuit board warm up...still nothing.

You may only be receiving 110 volts, instead of the 240 volts needed to operate. (Thus, only the light coming on)

Did you reset the dryer circuit breakers?
Are you receiving 240v to the plug?

Or all blower motors on electric kenmore 80 series 220 or 110 current


Speaking of these United States, here's how that goes.
In this country, dryers are called 220, but they are really 110 twice!
So, on the back of the dryer is a plug with 3 or 4 prongs.
( hope you can get this from my description. )
On a 3 prong plug, the two "slanted" prongs are each hooked to 110 volt p service.
The "L" shaped prong is a ground.

If you have a 4 pronged plug, the two flat straight prongs are 110 volt each, and the "L" shaped and the round prong are both grounded.

FYI: Each of the 110 volt wires has a different function. One powers the motor, the other the heating element.
Be Blessed.

I am having the same problem. I think there is a design problem. They have tried to fix mine 3 times (replacing the dryer with a new one on the first try!) My dryer is only years old. I'm so disappointed with Sears and Kenmore.

Kenmore oasis dryer cycle signal beeping constantly


This symptom indicates a stuck key on the user interface control board.
Replacing this control board would most likely fix this type of problem.


You can order this part from SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, PartSelect.com etc.



Before buying any parts I suggest you access the interface ribbon and disconnect it and then connect it back and see if there is any improvement.


You might also remove the interface from the console and check the console for any stuck buttons.

Remember to unplug the unit first.

3 beep-tones


I am having this same problem, and it seems quite intermittant. I have finally narrowed it down to an electrical issue, somewhere on the control circuit board (which I have sitting in front of me right now.) I'm going to see if I can buy a new one, and for how much, before calling out the repairman.

Convert a gas dyrer into a electric dryer?


Sell the dryer and get an electric one. Conversion is not possible. Be advised that electric dryers run on 220 volts and require a special plug. hope this helps!

Dryer turns itself on & beeps, then off again


aye, see if you can enter the diagnosis mode. What we are looking for is the F-02 code. This will flash when there is a stuck button or user interface problem and only displayed in the test mode. With the unit plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any button except stop. Press for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press for 3 seconds, release for 3 secnds and press for 3 seconds. If you did it right 88 should appear. Press the same button again and if there is a error, it should show up. If no error code shows, open the consol and check the p-5 connector. This will be the interface ribbon to the board. Reseat it and see if the problem stops. Catriver
