Kenmore Elite electronic control dryer intermittently works

Kenmore Elite dryer from 2000 worked fine until this past Spring, then began to intermittently only work on Express (high heat) cycle, all the while chirping in bursts of three chirps. Finally it quit altogether and I replaced the control board. Now, after about a month or two of working fine, it will act as though there is no power getting to the control panel, however I have checked the wiring and removed and reinstalled all the connectors onto the control board. It would not work, period, no lights no anything. Then after about three days it began working fine after not touching it during that period! It worked well for ten loads or so, then quit again. I went through the same deal, checked power, etc, but did not touch the control board or connectors this time, just let it set for five days, checking to see if it would start up again. It finally did and is running fine right now....what on earth is this about?

SOURCE: replaced bad high temp sensor and two loads later it is bad

It will continue to blow until you correct the blockage in the vent system.
It may be internal to the dryer or external to the connecting vent or outside vent.
Find it and fix it.

SOURCE: Everything is fine, except it

Hi Ron. I just lost a very extensive reply to you. Yes it can be the pulley making the chirp or the drum rollers. Items 15 - 18 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5172907&diagram_id=1356738#d1356738

It can also be caused by dry drum rollers but usually this is associated with a rumble: Items 2, 11, 12 and 13.

This sounds like several faults rather than one, but the likely original cause is the thermostat. Thermostats most often fail in the closed (on) position which would mean that the element was always on, rather than switching on and off when your dryer reached the correct temperature. This would explain why the control panel seemed hot.

This also explains why the dryer was stopping during the cycle. Your dryer is fitted with a thermal-fuse which trips and cuts power when the dryer gets too hot. However, a faulty thermostat doesn't usually stop the dryer running. A broken thermal fuse usually will.

From your description, I'd say you are definitely going to need a new thermostat, but I doubt if that's the only part you're going to need. You may well need a new thermal fuse and as the control panel got hot, this could have been damaged also.

I wouldn't buy any parts until you've inspected the control panel. You really need a service manual . but they are not usually available free. Failing that you're going to need some test equipment (Voltage & Ohm meters) to find the problem but if you don't know how to use them, it's definitely time to get an engineer.

I wouldn't advise buying any parts until you've investigated thoroughly - unless you can get them cheaply and return them if they aren't needed.

Sears Electric Dryer is flashing F01 What is wrong?


The F01 indicates a failed electronic machine control board. This error code can sometimes be caused by a glitch or power surge through the electrical lines. You may be able to clear this code by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes. If the code returns after plugging the washer back in, then the electronic machine control board will need to be replaced.
You can order a new control board from the Sears PartsDirect website.

The control lock button is light up and the washer won't work.


There is a button on the control panel with a marking under it that says "Press and hold for 3 seconds to lock/unlock control". Look for the said button then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the control lock light turns off. The button is usually the Auto Dry Level button for Kenmore Elite dryers and the Drain/Spin button for Kenmore Elite Washer. Whirlpool Duet Washers and Dryers use the End of Cycle Button to lock and unlock the control.

Sometimes the problem is due to electronic glitch and unplugging the machine for at least 30 minutes may solve the problem. But if the control cannot be unlocked by pressing and holding the button specified above or by unplugging the machine, the control panel electronics may need to be replaced.
