It appears your thermistor or gas valve solenoid 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.

I have a Kenmore Elite digital dryer, manufactured in 2002, and it will run for awhile but then it stops and sets itself to a certain dry time/settings and wont do anything else. When I press stop, it just...


I have a newer model of what I believe is the same dryer. I'm not sure if the layout is the same on yours as it is on mine.

I had the same problem, first the problem stems from user error -- there's a reason they say to empty the lint trap after every use. I know I've been remiss in emptying it thus my beeping bonanza.

Second -- THE FIX -- in the lint trap area (this is described based on my 2007/08 model) there are screws that allow you to remove the lint trap censor cover, unscrew, you'll see it's connected to wiring, there are 2 electrical connections, these slide on and off, gently pull and each will slide off, clean the connectors. By disconnecting to clean, which is the basis of the problem, the electric function resets (as far as I know), the beeping stops and you're good to go! Good luck.

Flame goes off


First make sure that your exhaust pipe going outside is completely clear. Also you may need to clean the lint out of the drier. If you take the lint catcher assembley off on the inside, ther will be alot of lint inside. Just clean out what you can by hand, then vacuum out the rest. This should take care of your problem.

2 to 3 cycles to fully dry clothes


if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly

Need a lint screen, also need a hood for natural gas/propane


you can get the parts at sears.com. the model should start with a 110. if the strip went down the vent it probably lodged in the blower jamming it.
