Kenmore elite dryer runs for about 3 min. then trips the breakers


The circuit breaker may be tripping because of a fault with the dryer or it may be a fault with the circuit breaker being weak.

From the description you give the circuit breakers trip frequently.

I'd suggest you first try selecting the no heat air fluff cycle and run it to see if the breaker trips. If the circuit breaker doesn't trip in air fluff then there is likely a short in the heating element.

With a clamp-on amp meter you can read the amp draw of the dryer when it is heating. With the motor and element both working you would see approximately 25-26 amperes being drawn. The breaker is rated at 30 amps. If the breaker trips and only 26 amps are being drawn then the breaker is the problem.

Try the air fluff cycle first and see if the breaker will trip. Then with additional details I may be able to help you further.

Kenmore he3: model 110.8708, breaker trips, one side of the 220 line gets hot, and is vibrating while dryer is running.


This may not be tour only but I would inspect the junction block on back of unit where power cord is wired on .sometimes these terminals work loose and start arcing melting the junction then causing a short. UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE INSPECTING. you will have to remove a small inspection cover to see this block, Hope this gets you in the right direction

No heat-Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite He5 Steam 110.8775


Check that there is 240 volt at the plug as sometimes a breaker will be weak on one side and only produce 120 volts which will let the drum spin but produce no heat

Electric problem in this dryer


There is too many appliances on the same circuit. Try plugging it in on a circuit that has less items running on it or try running it on a circuit that the breaker can allow more power(amps)

My Kenmore Elite (Whirlpool) HE3 elctric dryer is no


A dryer not heating usually means that either the heating element is burned/broken (open circuit); a thermal fuse in line with the heating element is blown or; a thermostat is faulty.

Dryer needs to be partially disassembled to diagnose with a multimeter.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer PF on control panel,


HI, there may have been a slight power failure within the home breaker unit or the dryer may have lost power to the control for some sort of reason.

I recommend a thorough inspection of the terminal block on the back side of this unit. make sure the power cord is attached tightly and the wall outlet is secure and holding the power cord correctly. if everything looks great with the terminal block and the power cord is plugged in the outlet correctly, simply unplug this unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. after the 5 minutes are up, plug the unit in once more and the PF alert should reset.

Make sure the breaker box in your home is working properly. (the actual breaker switch for the dryer must be in the on position)

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.

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
