The door is not completly closing. Make sure to push it in hard around the clasp areas. If yours has a light, the light should turn off and on as you open and close the door. It won't matter if the buld is bun't out, but this clasp issue will cause your buld to burn out as it will come on all the time.

I was getting three beeps and the drum light was contantly on even with the door shut. I pulled out the door switch and pushed the three wires that are plugged into the switch back in tight and everything worked fine.
If your light is on with the door shut it's probaly the same problem or the switch just needs to be rplaced.

I have a Frigidaire electric dryer it won't start and beeps three times I'm not sure what year and make



Good Afternoon Frankie, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dryer is not starting and will only beep three times. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or sensor. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for at least ten minutes. You may also want to check your household circuit and assure that the breaker did not flip or that the circuit has not shorted. If that all appears to be in proper working order then I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

How do you turn off the beaping on a Haier Clothes Dryer?


The responses here miss the issue: The beeps described by the Poster are NORMAL and signal a finished load. However, the beeps are very loud, persistent, and extremely annoying, therefore the Poster wants to DISABLE the beeps. The question is how to disable the annoying beeps.

When I push start it beeps 3 times. Lights on the right work, lights on the far left don't light up.




Alright, pretty unconventional, but simple and Genius on my part!!! Not sure if we're talking about the same models, but I was cruising this site with the same problem.... K, so it's making three beeps right? Check inside the DRYER (maybe same issue w/ washer, I dunno), but there's a button on the top-inside.... DEPRESS THAT BUTTON, and while holding it down, START THE DRYER (HOLD TO START), if it starts working, this tip is for you!

1) on the opposite side, where the door depresses that same button on the dryer door... you ready for this... see step two ;)

2) SUPER GLUE A PENNY IN THAT INDENTATION PART, your problem is there's not enough connection, and the door is no longer holding that same button down...

3) TA DAH!! Since a repair guy could've charged ya like 50+ bucks, I'll take... emmm.. 25$, email me at Kumatrev@yahoo.com on where to send the check, or just shoot me an email to say thanks ;)

Dryer will not start.


Check your door switch. It sounds like the door switch is not engaging (closing properly). If the switch contacts stay open, the interior light stays on the dryer will beep when you attempt to start it. This is the push button toggle switch on the door frame. This is a common symptom of this problem.

Open the door and push in on the switch, If the switch is working properly, the light will go out. If it doesn't, you will need to make sure the switch is not loose. Next, check the wires leading to the switch to make sure they are not loose, broken or grounded to the case anywhere. If all the wiring checks good, you will need to replace the switch. This is a very simple repair. Let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had


The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.

Kenmore Elite HE4 beeps three times when start panel is pressed and wont turn on


FWIW ... the Sears guy came by yesterday. The problem was apparently that the door latch was not operating to the extent that the sensors thought the door was open. He is replacing the latch next week. He adjusted the old one in the mean tiome and it appears to be working fine.

This kind of stunned me, since my wife reported an electric zap and the interior light burned out as the dryer went dead -- so I was sure it would be a fried circuit board -- but, no, a little jiggling of the latch seemed to clear it up....

My dryer keeps beeping after 30seconds of turning it on. I have pressed the 'LOCK' key to unlock & even then it still does the beeping thing! Could this be the motherboard packing up?


I had the same problem. My wife was about to take an axe to the darn thing. The frustrating thing was that it was beeping 3 times and the status lights were flashing. The manual only described 4 beeps (Dryer ran too long) or 6 beeps (Push button does not function). It finally dawned on me that it was beeping two sets of three beeps (i.e 6 beeps). The corrective action was to press buttons lightly and release. I pressed on every button first lightly then heavily with no success. I pounded on the instrument panel; still no luck. Finally I pressed the Options button and the Select button simultaneously for a second and heard a click. After that, no more beeping. According to the manual this activates a "LOCK' feature if you hold them down long enough. But in my case, the lock light flashed but didn't engage and after the beeping stopped, I left well enough alone.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore HE2 Dryer makes three beeps but wont start


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.
