Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite QuietPak 2 powers up and shuts off within seconds

I press the power button and then I start the dryer. It stays on for a few seconds and sometimes for a few minutes and then shuts off. If I alternate pressing the start and stop button and then hold both down for 10 seconds it will power up again. When it shuts off I have to do all of the above again(sometimes several times before I get results). It seems like it may have a short but I have no idea how to fix it.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE4 smartheat quiet pak 9 that has power but will not start.


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum could be broken. I'd check that first.

Kenmore Elite Smartheat Quietpak 9 Dryer won't turn on.....as if there is no power. After being unplugged for a while, it will run one cycle.


Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

I'VE HAD MY DRYER 3 YEARS. POWER COMES ON BUT WHEN YOU PUSH START BUTTON THERE'S JUST A PAUSE AND THE ERROR CODE " F". PLEASE HELP!!


Select any one button (except POWER, START, and STOP) and follow
the steps below, using the same button (remember the button):
Press/hold
3 seconds
➔ Release for
3 seconds
➔ Press/hold
3 seconds
➔Release for
3 seconds
➔ Press/hold
3 seconds
All indicators on the console will
momentarily turn off, then turn back on with 88 displayed. After
5 seconds, the Automatic test begins.
Use the tech sheet info on page 2 as a starting point

Note to get the exact tech sheet or manual for your machine go to ServiceMatters and post your model number.

Control locked


Mine has an "auto dry" button. It says underneath, "Press & hold 3 seconds..." to unlock control. I did it, it worked.

Must hold start button to run. no heat


disconnect power and remove lid. Test the door switch w a volt meter do so opening and closing the door not pushing switch if circuit stays open try pushing switch with finger. If pushing closes circuit then adjust switch.If circuit stays open replace switch. If switch operates with no problems then it is the motor. Check all connections and vacuum lint from motor
