Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Stops running and/or won't start

Kenmore Elite gas dryer. Seven years old. Sometimes just quits in the middle of a drying cycle, clothes still very damp. Sometimes when I push the start button, it will sound like it starts but then does 3 beeps and shuts off.

Kenmore elite dryer will not work on manual cycles which consist of three options; timed dry, express dry, and touch up. Dryer will work on auto cycles only


most likely the board is bad,the board is big money,just keep using it on auto,that's what you should be using anyway the dryer automatically stops when the clothes are dry,say you set your clothes for 60 minutes and they dry in 40,you're drying the clothes 20 more minutes that you didn't need,if you set it on auto the dryer sensor knows the clothes are dry and shuts it down when they are dry,this doesn't have a timer this has a computer board or it could be the touch pad not working correctly if it doesn't take commands but either part is expensive the board is like 200 and the touch pad is close to 300 bucks,i would use it on auto,one more thing to check is sometimes the ribbon or plug that connects the touch pad to the board could be loose or have some lint or something in it,i've just unplugged them and plugged them back in and then it works,also clean out all the lint out of the dryer and vent line,this is the number one cause of most problems in dryers and you won't have to worry about a dryer fire,if it's gas you should do this once a year yours is electric so you can wait like every 18 months with gas you have a flame in there so you don't want lint in or around the flame,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides down into and i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line just take it off the dryer stick the leaf blower int the line and blow it to the outside when you have the dryer running go back outside and make sure the air is blowing out good

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Takes too long to dry or keeps running when clothes are dry


If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Brown streak on clothes


Hi,

It could be from scorching due to getting too hot. This may be the start of a problem for you.

It is best to judge how long clothes need drying for before drying them. If they are left too long, sometimes the heat builds up.

Try a smaller load in there, and if you can reduce the temperature any then do.

Often it's just overloading is the issue.

Hope this is a solution for you, If so, Please rate as Fixya! Thanks.
