Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Dryer won't start

Purchased a kenmore elite he 4t front load dryer. it won't start.  it gave me a biot of trouble this morning and only wanted to start in normal cycle.  i had to hold the button down for about 15 seconds to get it to respond.  I was able to adjust the time of the load but no other button would respond.  not it is not starting at all.  it must know that the warranty just expired!

I checked the circuit breaker--unplugged the unit for 2 minutes (thought that it might reset like some other electronics with a computer-brain--nothing seems to work

    we have a kenmore dryer. when you set the timer you can hear it clicking but the dryer will not start. i replaced the start switch and that didn't work.

    When using the "timed dry" cycle we can no longer adjust the time". It is stuck on 10 minutes and does not come on with the default 40 minute setting. I don't think there is a problem with the + and - touch pad because we can adjust the time up and down in both the "rapid dry" and the "custom refresh" cycles. I have unplugged the unit reset the circuit breaker in an attempt to reset the unit but nothing resolves the issue.

Wiggle, jiggle and tap the damp dry button.  It gets stuck and the whole machine shuts down.  Tap the normal cycle or what ever setting you want inbetween and it will turn back on.  Mine did this and I paid for a service call $113. for him to clean the damp dry button with rubbing alcohol.  It has been stuck since.

It sounds like you do need either the main computer or the the console electronics. Sorry there is no other reset of any type.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

Why the control locked is on , i have a kenmore elite HE 4t washer can't do nothing to make it go away so won't let me make a wash


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

New Kenmore Elite Front Loader will not get past 'Sud' cycle,


Hello wheeljc; I had the same problem when I purchased my Kenmore Elite in 2006. I have a HE4t front load. It's possible that you're using to much detergent, if you're using HE liquid it only requires a small amount and does a very good job.
