Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Cycle signal is going crazy

My Kenmore Elite dryer still dryes most of the time but I am having trouble with the dryer signal. It keeps sounding about 20 times a minute while the clothes are drying. I am unable to turn off the signal, computer not responding when I press the button. Sometimes when I try to stop the signal from beeping the dryer shuts down and will not turn on . I unplug the dryer for a while and then I am at least able to start it up again but the beeping continues. No error codes have popped up yet. Is there a way to reset the computer?

How to replace a heating element on a Kenmore Elite Oasis ST dryer

Sounds like you need to replace the timer one the dryer not the element but to make sure I would do a little trouble shooting to rule out the element or heating coil turn on dryer cycle like normal for about 30 seconds then open the door to feel for heat if you do feel heat its your cycle/timer knob if you don't feel heat then it's the coil or element witch are the same also first always check your lint trap and ducts going outside the dryer make sure you have proper airflow through ducts vents. clogged vents ducts ect. Cause over heating of element coil causing a safety fuse to shut down heating coil/element but will not stop cycle also moisture censors detect moisture causing cycle to continue on hope this helps.

Cycle Signal keeps beeping loud-soft every 15 seconds while dryin

Hi Celine, I just experienced the same exact problem. I came here looking for a solution. I got mine to stop by holding down the cycle signal button for 3 seconds, releasing it for three seconds, and repeating until both lights (loud and soft) went off. Hope it helps.

Kenmore dryer beeps constantly

End of Cycle Signal
The End of Cycle Signal produces an audible sound when the
drying cycle is finished. Promptly removing clothes at the end of
the cycle reduces wrinkling.
@ H_GH
Press END of CYCLE SIGNAL to adjust the sound level or turn off
the signal.
NOTE: When WRINKLE GUARD _ is selected and the End of
Cycle Signal is on, a tone sounds every 5 minutes until the
clothes are removed, or WRINKLE GUARD _ ends.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
