2013 Kenmore elite model 796.8107#, 796.9107# steam dryer

It seems that my dryer has "locked up" Help! It is 3 weeks old! The "check filter" indicator is flashing and "CL" is flashing on the display panel. I clean out the lint trap every time after a load is dried. I unplugged the dryer and let sit for 15 seconds in hopes to reboot it. I've vacummed out the interior trap. The ventilation duct is shot and a direct path into the wall. I checked the main circuit breaker and the GFCI and it is on...help!

First, the 796 model means that the dryer was made by LG. The CL code usually means that the Control Lock (Child lock) is engaged. There are two buttons that you should press and hold for ~3 seconds to disengage the lock. There will be be a small icon (padlock or child's face and the padlock) with lines to the appropriate buttons. If only one button is used that icon will be on the single button. (Frequently it will be the Temp and Option buttons or just the Dry Level button. On some models, it's the Anti-bacterial or Rack Dry button.)

As for the lint trap issue, check the rest of your vent system. Sometimes, the cover on the outside of the vent comes loose and blocks the vent.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore HE 3, model number 110.8787,8789. I cleaned the lint screen, unscrewed the plastic that holds the screen and cleaned all lint out. After doing so, my dryer won't start. The lig

when you removed the screen from the inside you disconnected the wires from the 2 metal strips. now you need to remove the lower panel on the front. and reconnect them. you will need a T-20 torx and unplug the dryer to be safe. the wire will have 90 degree push on connectors and it does not have any polarity concerns. the two male connectors are real close to the top of the panel, maybe even slightly under the other panel. By the upper right of the silver fan duct.

The Kenmore Elite Oasis Steam Dryer - almost new - worked well last week. This week no power to dryer; 220volts is present to dryer. Any ideas?


You might want to take a look at the vent pipe for lint. If the exhaust thernistor detects high temps it shuts down the dryer. Bravos service manual (same as oasis)

3 week old new Kenmore dryer The outside seems to get really hot when using even on 1st load is this normal


most likely your vent line is plugged up with lint and dust,make sure the outside vent is clear and if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower and check the duct that the lint filter slides into,if that's not it call the factory if it's only 3 weeks old,let me know what you find

No heat-Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite He5 Steam 110.8775


Check that there is 240 volt at the plug as sometimes a breaker will be weak on one side and only produce 120 volts which will let the drum spin but produce no heat

Dryer working but no heat


The manual says that two circuit breakers used,and that the dryer
can spin but no heat if one of them tripped, check your panel and see
if any breakers are tripped. If this was the problem,have an electrician
check the circuit.

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond


My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
