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

Hi,

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.

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

I have a kenmore HE2 model 110.87562601. When I turn on the dryer, shut the door and push the start button, it beeps like the door is still open even though it is all the way closed.


Hi,
Check your door switch...


There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

How to replace door switch on old kenmore stac.dryer 110.88752792


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 repairclinic.com 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
