I am having this same problem, and it seems quite intermittant. I have finally narrowed it down to an electrical issue, somewhere on the control circuit board (which I have sitting in front of me right now.) I'm going to see if I can buy a new one, and for how much, before calling out the repairman.

The control panel electronics is malfunctioning. Replace it or turn the circuit breaker off to avoid such condition.

The front electric panel is out. I have the same problem. The part costs around $161.00 and about $100 for labor to fix it. Sorry for the bad news.

4E problem on kenmore dryer


Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!
