One of 4 things.. bad power to unit (1/2 blown breaker) blown fuse behind the lower front panel ($12), broken motor switch or bad door switch..

Go with the cheap parts first.. door switch and fuse. test your power in with a meter..

mine does this.. 3 beeps and once in a while goes completely dead.. doing the hair-dryer trick fixes it every time but only temporarily...

Replaced timer on dryer because would not shut off sometimes. dryer was working while I had it open I was vacuuming out lint around drum and switches. had door open and light was on suddenly light went out...

if its on a circuit breaker,just switch the breaker off,then back on,they can drop out ,but still show good
if this is not the case,check the incoming power block inside the dryer as a burned off neutral conductor can result in the same condition

Kenmore elite he4 dryer wont run

Hi! crystal2hd
My he3 dryer does not have a door lock. The door switch turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. Make sure this switch is not damaged. Unplug the dryer before removing the front cover.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer (2yrs old) Light buld died and dryer won't start. We changed bought a new light bulb but the dryer still doesn't start. The computerized buttons still litght up though.

Sometimes when a bulb goes out or is replaced the unit can short out.

Try holding your end of cycle signal button for 5 seconds, watch the light, if you control lock it, it will light but will not run because control lock is a safety feature.

Also try pushing door in and starting it, might be bad latch

Duet dryer dead

A tell tale sign of a failed control panel. Irregardless of brand, Dryer usually has a 1-year part and 1-year labor warranty. Pull out your proof of purchase (POP) and go to the manufacturer's website to find a servicer near your area (usually search by zip code or miles radius). Call the recommended servicer in your area and provided them with POP when asked. Repair turn-around time is usually 4-6 business days. A trip to the laundromat or installing a clothesline... take your pick :-)

Best Regards.
