Question about Kenmore Elite HE3 Steam 8674 Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer turns on, but does not run

Our Kenmore Elite HE3 turns on fine. However, after pressing Start it does not run, rotate or heat. There is a click heard after pressing Start, just like normal, but the motor never starts.

    Thank you for your quick response. You were right on the money- our thermal fuse was bad. FixYa saved us an expensive repair call and a lot of time and frustration.

    We will definitely come to FixYa first the next time we have a repair question.

Try to turn the drum inside with no clothes in it, does it turn freely both ways?

Then as someone is holding the start button, hold the door switch button, then try to turn the drum counter-clock wise, and see if it will start turning on its own.

If it does start turning, then the motor is more than likely the problem.

If it dosen't then the timer is more than likely the problem.

    another possibilty When you tried to restart it and when you turned the drum to try to
    start it, did it make any motor sounds, like a buzz, hum, or grind
    noise?



    If no sounds at all, its possible your thermal fuse is bad.

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.

We are new to the Kenmore Elite HE3 8674 dryer and it won't run


Our daugther in law came over, and she forcefully shut the door, and the dryer started working. We are going to have the Sears people to come out and make certain that this dryer is not damaged.

Kenmore Elite He3 electrical dryer runs but it does not heat up


odd but it worked for me!! Try resetting the circuit breaker. It will not appear to have blown, this is because only 1/2 the breaker needs resetting, This is much cheaper to try before calling for service or parts. My 2002 E3t has only had this problem once and the resetting worked without further issues for 2 years now. Good luck
