Kenmore HE2 Front Load Dryer Dryer keeps on stopping & door opens

Kenmore HE2 Front Load Dryer - When the dryer turns off the door automatically opens. I tried to turn it back on to fluff the clothes and it starts but then immediately stops and the door pops open again.

We have had the dryer for 3 years and it has never done that before. I was wondering if that is a built in safety feature and if it is overheating.

Thanks - Lois from Maryland

SOURCE: fluff on clothes


Probable reason why fluff/lint is still present even when a rinse is done is simply because they were not flushed out together with the water.

Depending on the brand and model of your machine, there might be a lint filter on the drain system that is already full and therefore would require removal, cleaning or possibly replacement. To my knowledge, here are basically two (2) types of lint/fluff filter. One is at the or near the end of the drain/discharge tube/hose/pipe which is basically a slip-on and can be cleaned rather easily. The other is internal and would normally be placed right after the tub before any pump hose or tube. This type is a bit more cumbersome to remove/clean replace.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.Check online for the part has it for $14.00 not bad

Dryer works for few minutes then stops

clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

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.
