Clean lint filter or the vent from the dryer to the outside for lint obstruction.

Kenmore model 84152/94152, 8 years old, started out with3 beeps over and over while running just fine otherwise. Now, 12 hours later, stupid thing started, while not running as in not in use, beeping once...

that isn't a model number and kenmore doesn't make anything so you have to send the full model number off of the dryer,open the door look around the opening where you put the clothes in and send the model number,if it's beeping and starting on it's own it sounds like you have a computer board problem with it but can't help you without the model number.

Kenmore Elite quiet pak 4 will not start. Close the door and hit the power button and nothing happens. Makes the beeping sound but nothing else.


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...

Kenmore elite smart sensor model 110.6506 wont run

Many different possibilities. Could be thermal fuse, timer / control, motor. Start switch, or door switch. Most likely need to call service unless you have means to troubleshoot and test parts.

Dryer will not heat up

remove the plastic tab infront of the machine
start you dryer. look inside the hole to see if the igniter glows.
takes 20-30 secnds.
if it glows then move to the back side of the dryer
remove the screws an check the thermal fuse, for continuity is your tester has the beep sound wich is easier to use for newbies, try it no beep sound, no good.

but if it checks ok then you probaly have bad coils

also since you are looking onthe back make sure that the vent is not restricted, a restricted vent can cause blow back an shut the dryer off if the vent is not clearly open.

good luck!

You need to check if the Spray Arms are knocking against an item in a basket. If the source of noise cannot be determined, run a program without plates or glassware. If the noises continue, let me know for further investigation.

Kenmore Elite Dryer HE4 Quietpak 9, has 4 dim lights showing on the console display but won't start or respond, I have bought brand new and replaced all sensors. Replaced heating element. looked like the original heating element. Pack came with new sensors. I did not test with a multimeter. My plan is to measure continuity on all the old sensors. Then do the same on the new ones. The electronic board looks good, does not smell burnt or old burnt smell. I cleaned all the lint in this dryer but unfortunately the motor has some lint in it which I surfaced cleaned. The only way to get to the motor is to remove the drum. So far I have soent $40 on all parts and a week works of troubleshooting as a novice. On the main display read, it shows two small dim lot red lines, wish I could send you a picture. Also when the fuse is off I plugged in the dryer and all the lights turned on normal. All looked in working condition except of course it did not turn on, I have not replaced the switch and with the new fuse, by the way, I bought 5 to 6 of the same fuses thinking I was burning them, that's why I bought a multimeter to retest them to see if they are not burnt. When I plug in the fuse it goes black but the door light works. I have held down the start button, nothing, held down the cancel button, nothing, I have done the crazy push all buttons even shook the machine a bit just in case something was causing whatever myth I was conjuring. I am about to give up and just buy a used one from someone else but I think I can fix this, it should be very simple to fix.
