If you get a series of four rapid beeps when you push START in an attempt to start your dryer, your door switch (interlock) is defective.  I have experienced this problem before and it is a fairly simple problem to fix.  The easiest way to tell is to open the dryer door and push the door interlock in by hand.  Hold it in while pushing the START button.  If the dryer starts, then all you have is a simple problem of the door not closing properly.  If the dryer still does not start, however, replace the dryer door interlock.  The interlock should also make a definite "click" while pushing it in.  If it does not, the switch is worn out.  Some dryers have an upper and lower door interlock.  If yours is equipped with two interlocks, make sure they are both functioning and that the door is latched properly.  I have experienced problems where dryers doors with two interlocks would close at the top, but not at the bottom.  The dryer would not start as a result.  If you can provide me with your model number I can get a part number and price for you.  I can also tell you where you can get the part and provide instructions on how to replace it.  Let me know.  I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: 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

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

Dryer will not start when pushing start button it just clicks once


This sounds like a problem with the thermal fuse blown which is wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is terminated when the thermal fuse blows and the motor cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this kind of Whirlpool Duet or Kenmore Elite dryer problem.
