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.

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.
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.
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
