The machine control electronics board which serves as the "brain' of the machine is starting to fail. It is most probably overheating causing it to shut off as it turns on only after it is left unplugged and open for several minutes which allow it to cool down. Specify the exact model number of the machine for the specific replacement part and for more specific advice.

leave this machine unplugged for several hours. Make sure all the lint is free and clear. This machine needs to be plugged for several several hours to reset itself unless your model has a reset option available.

My Kenmore elite HE4 quiet pak 9 electric dryer is working, but it emits a constant series of 3 beeps, and sometimes shuts off before the cycle is complete. I have to unplug it to stop the beeping....

You are getting moisture in the control panel buttons. After a while the panel will not function at all. The light in the dryer tub will still come on when the door is open. When you unplug your machine and it sets for awhile you are allowing the moisture to dry and the machine can reset. Some people use a hair dryer to dry out the control panel for a temporary fix. Eventually, you will have to get it replaced once it stops resetting for you.

Dryer was working fine...then

You have a short circuit in the dryer. Check the incoming wires at the cord terminal on the rear of the dryer. If these wires are OK it could be a shorted heating element.

My Kenmore Elite, Model 11062042100, has been working fine but now the control panel is totally dead. The interior light is working, so I know it is getting power. Any ideas? Thanks!Shaun

OK, if you are certain that the unit is receiving a power current, this will most defiantly confirm a major chip fault in in the main control board.

Try to wake the control by cutting the power to the unit for 5 minutes. if the damage isn't severe, this will either, reset the program or, render and error code. if both do not appear and the control remains blank or dead, after the reset, replace the main control board.

Maytag MDB7130AWB dishwasher blows circit breaker.

These have been known to leak water into the door panel. If so the water can cause a short. Your breaker is keeping the machine from lighting up. Check any seals that may have been braeched in the door. Start at the dispencer latch

Dryer screen shows 8.8. when I go to dry a load of clothes and won't work

We had the same problem - you might try and hit the panel with a blow dryer to heat it up if it's in a cold garage - it may buy you some more time - It took mine 2 yrs to go out completely - when it finally did - I took out the curcuit board and found dark discoloration around the cluster of four resistors - after reading dozens of posts from multiple sites, decided to replace those four resistors and the three main capacitors in the same area just to cover all bases. And for only a few bucks - it works like new again!!! A service call could cost you @$300 - $500 from what other are saying! eek if that's really the case!
