Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
Kenmore Elite HE4 Model 11095081401. Won't start. Has power - display lights up. Able to select cycle like normal but all that happens when you push the start start button is a "beep". I believe it always did this - kinda of a confimation that its gonna start. However, it doesnt. It does make a "click" sound when you press cancel, Dont think it did this before. I have cleaned out the exhaust vent tube already. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you

There is a 1/4" screw on on both bottom corners. Take these two screws out and pull the cover from the bottom straight out. It hangs on the pedestal if you have one, so a little effort is required.

If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:
1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.
2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.
3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).
4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.
You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.
NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

check the door switch and door latch. Open door, set the dryer to air fluff cycle, and manually depress the door switch. Press start button. If it started - door needs alignment to fix it.
If it did not start:
If your dryer has light inside - check if light turns off when you press the switch. If not - switch needs replacement.
If all that checks out ok - the problem is more serious, and you might need a tech to come out and diagnose it.

PF - Power Failure - PF error code indicates a power failure during the dryer's cycle. Press and HOLD start to continue the cycle, or press off/pause to clear display.
