Dryer keeps beeping and won't start


Hey GOD IS GOOD !!!!
Electric dryer no start does nothing

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.

CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.

If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.

Dryer will not start


There is a start relay on the computer control board. You probably hear a very dull click. That click is the relay on the computer board trying to engage, but it won't and therefore your dryer won't spin and your board sends a beep and perhaps an "E11" error code to the LED display (Not sure on Kenmores.).

In plain english, you have a bad control board now and will have to replace it. Cost about $130.

Dryer will not start.


Check your door switch. It sounds like the door switch is not engaging (closing properly). If the switch contacts stay open, the interior light stays on the dryer will beep when you attempt to start it. This is the push button toggle switch on the door frame. This is a common symptom of this problem.

Open the door and push in on the switch, If the switch is working properly, the light will go out. If it doesn't, you will need to make sure the switch is not loose. Next, check the wires leading to the switch to make sure they are not loose, broken or grounded to the case anywhere. If all the wiring checks good, you will need to replace the switch. This is a very simple repair. Let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

3 beeps and lights flash when I push the start button


The door is not compltely closing. Make sure to push it in hard around the clasp areas. If yours has a light, the light should turn off and on as you open and close the door.

My dryer keeps beeping after 30seconds of turning it on. I have pressed the 'LOCK' key to unlock & even then it still does the beeping thing! Could this be the motherboard packing up?


I had the same problem. My wife was about to take an axe to the darn thing. The frustrating thing was that it was beeping 3 times and the status lights were flashing. The manual only described 4 beeps (Dryer ran too long) or 6 beeps (Push button does not function). It finally dawned on me that it was beeping two sets of three beeps (i.e 6 beeps). The corrective action was to press buttons lightly and release. I pressed on every button first lightly then heavily with no success. I pounded on the instrument panel; still no luck. Finally I pressed the Options button and the Select button simultaneously for a second and heard a click. After that, no more beeping. According to the manual this activates a "LOCK' feature if you hold them down long enough. But in my case, the lock light flashed but didn't engage and after the beeping stopped, I left well enough alone.

Hope this helps.
