Question about Kenmore Elite HE3 Steam 8674 Dryer

1 Answer

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

I got in and try a "normal" auto cycle on the dryer after turning it on. I press and hold the Start button and the dryer just dings at me and will not start. What am I doing wrong?

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.

PF indicates a power failure while unit was running.
Press "Hold To Start" to continue the cycle or

I hope this helps a little.

How do i get the control lock button to turn off?


There is a button on the control panel with a marking under it that says "Press and hold for 3 seconds to lock/unlock control". Look for the said button then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the control lock light turns off. The button is usually the Auto Dry Level button for Kenmore Elite dryers and the Drain/Spin button for Kenmore Elite Washer. Whirlpool Duet Washers and Dryers use the End of Cycle Button to lock and unlock the control.

Sometimes the problem is due to electronic glitch and unplugging the machine for at least 30 minutes may solve the problem. But if the control cannot be unlocked by pressing and holding the button specified above or by unplugging the machine, the control panel electronics may need to be replaced.

2 problems with my Kenmore Elite dryer


Hello, I would be curious to know if the dryer performs the same way on "timed" dry and "auto-dry", have you tried ? Here's a tip on how you can absolutely know if you have venting issues ( and I don't necessarily mean a "clogged" vent, there are other factors too ) Disconnect the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a cycle as you normally would and observe what happens. Also if it has the flex venting on it ( whether plastic or foil type ) get rid of it, personally I will not even service a customers dryer until they agree to change it when present. I'll watch for you reply in this post if I can assist you further. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Dryer turns on, but does not run


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.
