He3 dryer door wont stay shut - Dryers

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Apr 26, 2009

    Brand new Kenmore HE3 Dryer (purchased 3/23/09). Control Panel lights up but will not start. When you push the start button it goes "beep-beep-beep". Also, the interior light comes on. Tech says it's a problem with the door closure. A service call has been set (for 5 days from now) and I have a dryer full of wet towels!

My dryer door wont stay shut while drying

Hello Debbie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

1.) It sounds like you have a bad door latch. These are easily replaced. With a small flat head screw driver just wedge them out.

Cost: $7.00

2.) You may also have a broken door switch. Push in on the white button to make sure it goes in. Check the contactor on the door to make sure it is not bent.
Cost: $24.00.

3.) Also, check your door seal to ensure it is not coming off from wear.
Part number 3390733 Cost: $41.00

DRYER DISPLAYS CODE F22. What does this mean?

"F22" is a door lock issue Press the "Stop" button twice to cancel the cycle if "F22" shows. Check that the washer door is firmly shut--open it and shut it and try again. Make sure there aren't items blocking the closing of the door. Don't overload the basket. Try the cycle again.

Kenmorre HE3 turns on tumbles a few time then stops and smells like something is burning. Belts not broken. Could they still need to be replaces. Wonts start again for a few minutes

there is a thermo switch which will shut down a dryer ( its a safety feature) this may be bad. I would pull the front off and investigate to see if the motor, belt , roller etc is causing this problem. Open dryer door take out screws pry gently on each top corner and the front panel is off(some have screws in the bottom corners). Hope this helps tim

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?

Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

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 he4 dryer wont run

Hi! crystal2hd
My he3 dryer does not have a door lock. The door switch turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. Make sure this switch is not damaged. Unplug the dryer before removing the front cover.
