Kenmore HE2 Dryer makes three beeps but wont start

I have a HE2 dryer by kenmore, there is power to the unit it lights up. the other night I did a ton of laundry, when i took the last load out I noticed that the light burnt out. Today I went to put a load of laundry in and turned it on then it wouldnt start, it only beeps three times, powers up and all. I tried unplugging it and repluging it in and flipped and checked the breaker. Could it not work because of the light? that sounds like it wouldnt be that but ive seen some crazeier things. any help would be appreciated we dont have the money to call a repair man and were out of warrently of course. Had I known other people had problems with his dryer I would have never bought it...

Kahuna240 here and I am having the same problem with my Elite Oasis dryer. I start the dryer and it runs a few minutes and shuts off. Then it comes back on and beeps 3 times. I have cleaned out the vents, the dryer, and the outside vent. I never get an error code and sometimes it runs longer than others. It is very warm inside when it stops (not excessive heat) but I wonder if this problem is thermal.

    I have the whirlpool, which also makes the kenmore drying, my light is blown as well, there's power to the unit, but when I press start, I just get 3 fast beeps and the timer blinks. I know it can't be something as small as the light. I'm going to buy a bulb tomorrow since I've seen this thread!

    I have the HE3 and have the same problem, 3 beeps, and the light does not work, the bulb blew and I replaced it and it still does not work.



    I pulled the fuse and checked it for continuity and it checked fine.

    Kahuna, sounds like you are talking about 2 different dryers here, Oaisis and HE2. On the Oasis it sounds like a thermistor problem. It has the classic symptoms, run for 3 minutes and shuts down. Easy fix. On the HE2 is the dryer turning at all? If not you want to look at the door switch or thermal fuse. If it's running and then shutting down then I would look at the thermistor on this one too. Post a couple of full model numbers so we can get a better look see. Catriver

The Kenmore HE2 model numbers 8757 and 8758 are the beepers. Everything comes on as normal. You press the start button and it beeps several times and then beeps again, again, and again. It will not start or turn at all. I did notice the drum light was blown. I have not replaced it yet, but could something so simple be the problem?

On my Kenmore Elite the dryer would run normally for a few minutes than stop and signal three beeps. The problem was solved by replacing the thermister ( the device which monitors the temperature of the heated air) . The thermister is about one inch long and ca be found mounted in the top of the heating air duct. Open the access on the lower front of your machine. Look into the drier on the heating element side and follow the air duct to your left. The thermister is screwed into the top of the duct and has two wires attached.
Remove the device and read the resistance. If you apply heat with a hair dryer the resistance will change. If the resistance does not change or the change is erratic replace the thermister. You can buy them online or from Sears.

The problem i found with my dryer is that the connectors are getting corroded due to the moisture from the drying cycles. also dust attaches itself to the solder connections on the board and causes a minor short. If you know how, try removing the boards and cleaning them with 91% alcohol available at Walgreens. Use a clean toothbrush to clean the connectors and cable ends. Dry with compressed air or hairdryer. Just did mine and it is working now. Will see how long it lasts. Good luck!

I have the HE2 Dryer model 110 in white and it is doing what everyone else is complaining about. My light inside is still working so it's not a blown ligth bulb. What I have going on is that the green light on my diplay pannel is lit on "wet" and the green light in front of start is lig but when I close the door and try to press the start button NOTHING. Husband unplugged the machine, flipped the circuit switch and it started but then when I went to put the next load in the dryer, NOTHING again. Any suggestions? I'm hoping its not the circuit board. In the summer my front loader washer started leaking from the bottom, turned out that I needed to replace the plastic holder that the small, and I mean small motor sits on..HELP!!

SOURCE: Kenmore HE2 Dryer makes three beeps but wont start

After reading other problems on this board, it seems that the door closure switch is a common failure point.  The common theme is the dryer interior light burning out.  The door switch fails, so the light stays on, and burns out.  Then you try to do a load and the dryer will not start due to the switch not making contact.
Ours just started doing the same thing, and I am betting this is the culprit...
It could be an intermittent problem too.

It appears your thermal fuse has failed in this instance. After the machine begins to warm up - the fail thermally expands, and no longer makes contact.

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.

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.

What happens is that the door switch gets turned inside. I just took mine apart because of the same problems listed. The switch has a tab inside that has to make contact with the internal switch. I pulled mine apart and turned it so it made contact...put it back together and it works fine now. After doing all that it seems like you could turn the swith from the outside a quarter turn with a pair of pliers and accomplish the same thing.
