Question about Dryers

2 Answers

My Kenmore Elite dryer (#110.85872400) won't start. Setting selection made, start pushed and held, unit beeps once then nothing. 1st expert said the door switch was bad, replaced switch and same thing happened. Next expert said to test the moisture sensor, IPB does not show sensor, parts request doesn't show any sensor available. Vents cleaned, lint filter clean. Any ideas?

Hi Denholm15,

This is a common issue with most of the dryers. However, you would agree that there might be millions of reasons for the same. We cannot jump to any conclusion as we cannot see you dryer on the internet/you tube. We cannot discuss each and every aspect as it would take months for you to understand and use that.

At this moment, first we need to look for common reasons ina sequence and i believe you would agree.You cannot check a motor followed by switch..loll.......

So, let me offer you a basic link :-

Follow the steps :-

Unplug the wire. wait for 20-30 min.Plug in the wire and run the machine now.

It is probably best to check your motor next.

Check to make sure that the drum is free. You usually can spin it by hand.

Remember to unplug unit before working on it for safety.

Test to see if there is power to the motor also.

We will get to the bottom of this problem with a little persistence.

Dryer isn't working


I had success.  I found the manual....unplugged the dryer, and rotated the inside drum several times to check for any coins or small objects.  I did not find anyything, but if something small was lodged it is not hampering the dryer.  I plugged it back in and it worked right away...

Kenmore Elite 7.0 HE4 lights flash, won't start


Hi! debby1114 and sydver
I can imagine why several people are have similar problem, lets start with the basics and check the voltage at the wall recepticle. If this is the HE4 units made by Whirlpool for Kenmore, the first three digits of the model number could be 110. Let me know if you have had the power at the wall checked, and the breaker. This looks like a power problem to me.

Dryer will not start


If if "hums" like the motors is working you drive belt may have broken. If it makes no noise other than the click it could be a blown thermal fuse (there can be several) or a seized motor.
