Kenmore eco care system washer 417

I have a Kenmore Eco Care electric dryer, model 417.83042201 that will not turn off after the cycle has reached completion. It continues to dry until the timer dial is manually moved to the "OFF" position or the dryer door is opened. I removed the back dryer vent, vent hose, and lint screen assembly inside and cleaned out all the lint debris but it still continues to run. Any suggestions to remedy this problem? Thanks!

This may not be the solution to your exact problem but for those looking for why there timer will not advance and why it keeps running even when the items are dry: The usual problem is not the timer but the mosture sensor (if your dryer has one).

1: Check the mosture sensor light/indicator. If is still shows some mosture or flashes even when the items are dry, you have a mosture sensor problem, probably not a timer issue - luck you.

2: Check if the timer will advance and the dryer will turn off when you have it in the TIMED mode (i.e. 10mins - NOT the more/less dry modes.) If so, then it is indeed a sensor problem.

2: Check that the wires to the mosture sensor have not fallen off (as in my case - a simple repair). The senor is usually two metal bars somewhere near the front part of the inside of your dryer. You may have to take off the door and the front pannel (be sure to unplug the dryer first) to get at the two wires to clip on to the sensor. Clean any lint and make sure they are conneted. If well connected then replace the sensor ($15-$20 and very easy to do).

SOURCE: Dryer keeps running and timer continues to move around dial.

Change your timer. It has a malfunction in it. it's about a 100 dollar fix. Also your start switch may be bad.

SOURCE: Cleaned vents, dryer gets very hot, shuts off w/o drying clothes

Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.

SOURCE: Kenmore HE4 Dryer leaves clothes wet

From the techincal document found in the dryer bottom panel

TEST #4a Dryness Level Adjust

NOTE: If the customer is complaining about the clothes being damp and the moisture sensor passes TEST #4 "Moisture Sensor Test- step 3, then the total dry time can be lengthened by changing from a "Lo" for short auto cycle to "Hi" for longer auto cycle.

1. Activate the Diagnostic Test Mode. Press the following button sequence: MORE TIME ~ LESS TIME -+ MORE TIME --+ LESS TIME - all within 5 seconds

1. In diagnostic test mode, press and hold the Auto Dry Level key for 5 seconds. The dryer will beep and the current auto cycle mode will be seen on the display. The factory default setting is "Lo".

1. To select a different auto cycle mode, press the Auto Dry Level key again. The dryer display will flash and show either "Hi" or "Lo"

1. With the display flashing the selected auto cycle mode press the Start key to save the setting and exit diagnostics (the Start key in this mode does not start a drying cycle). The result will be stored in EEPROM of the control board.

Noise/not draining on spin cycle


I had that problem and it was the drain pump trying to drain but it coulsn't because it had lint, plastic, 3 underwires a looney some costume jewellery stuck in the pump. By the pump underneath you'll see a black plastic boot leading away from the pump. disconnect this and inside you'll find the lint trap and if you dig you'll probably find the culprit that stopping your pump from moving. Put it all back together and Voila!

There is probably debris in the pump trap. You can tilt the machine back and remove the three screws on the bottom panel. You will see 3 inch removable slotted cover on the pump. Turn this counterclockwise and remove the inner strainer. Clean all debris from this strainer and reinstall into place. Your problem should be resolved.

Lights On...Goes Out


there may be a "door closed" position switch that has been "bumped" during the process of soap dispenser drawer removal. the switch prevents accidental water leaks if door is open. your machine has a switch that is telling the control board that the door is open
