Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
When loaded with wet clothes it stops after 20 seconds. If I press on the door it will not stop.
I would recommend you have someone take the dryer completely apart and clean the lint out. In the last 3 months, I have cleaned out 2 or 3 shoeboxes of lint from each of 5 machines.
This has nothing to do with the filter screen you are supposed to clean after every use.
It has to do with the lint that escapes the ductwork inside the machine itself.
You may be amazed how much you will find.
You will also need to check the ductwork from the back of your machine to the outside air. That pipe can also get clogged and cause the same results.

Sounds like the push to start switch has gone bad. Not to expensive to fix, and pretty easy to do as well. You can remove the rear of the console, remove the push to start switch (lift the tab, then turn to unlock) and replace. Be sure to mark your wires so they go back in the right order. Jim

On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.

you have a clogged wall vent or clogged dryer vent or a clogged lint trap,you are trapping all the hot wet air in the dryer and that's why it's taking so lont to dry-mike

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse, very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.
