Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite digital dryer, manufactured in 2002, and it will run for awhile but then it stops and sets itself to a certain dry time/settings and wont do anything else. When I press stop, it just goes right back to those settings but will no longer dry. Also, when it does this, it continuously beeps. Both my washer & dryer say PF sometimes....

I have a newer model of what I believe is the same dryer. I'm not sure if the layout is the same on yours as it is on mine.

I had the same problem, first the problem stems from user error -- there's a reason they say to empty the lint trap after every use. I know I've been remiss in emptying it thus my beeping bonanza.

Second -- THE FIX -- in the lint trap area (this is described based on my 2007/08 model) there are screws that allow you to remove the lint trap censor cover, unscrew, you'll see it's connected to wiring, there are 2 electrical connections, these slide on and off, gently pull and each will slide off, clean the connectors. By disconnecting to clean, which is the basis of the problem, the electric function resets (as far as I know), the beeping stops and you're good to go! Good luck.

My kenmore elite #110.73012181 electric dryer with autonsense feature no longer sensing, keeps on drying for hours after clothes dry when on less dry mode or normal dry mode


The drying circuit has to have a sensor to control heat and the timer controls time (on timed drying). Often sensors fail "open" and dryers stop drying. This sensor or the circuit seems to have failed closed (runs all the time). I suspect the sensor has failed in the drying control.

Wrinkled clothes


My wife, who runs "dryer central", stops the dryer short of complete drying and hangs the clothes that are easily wrinkled.
You may also have the heat set too high, or the time set too long, causing the problem.
Try experimenting.
Be blessed.

How do I stop fluff cycles on kenmore elite dryer


There are two ways this can happen:

1. You set the timer to a cycle that activates this option
2. (If equipped) Turn the selector knob off on the control panel that you can activate this feature with. Every manufacturer calls it something different.

Check behind the dryer to make sure the tube running to the exit vent isn't clogged or blocked. Then go out side where the vent runs to and make sure it isn't clogged.

My Kenmore elite HE4 quiet pak 9 electric dryer is working, but it emits a constant series of 3 beeps, and sometimes shuts off before the cycle is complete. I have to unplug it to stop the beeping....


You are getting moisture in the control panel buttons. After a while the panel will not function at all. The light in the dryer tub will still come on when the door is open. When you unplug your machine and it sets for awhile you are allowing the moisture to dry and the machine can reset. Some people use a hair dryer to dry out the control panel for a temporary fix. Eventually, you will have to get it replaced once it stops resetting for you.

ck recalls on this issue.
there may be one.
under warranty??
do not buy samsung they are notorious for having problems.
sounds like the heating element and relay may have went out.
however if it does not start up at all it could be the motor itself.

Dries clothes but runs too long & clothes VERY hot


Fixable and possibly a warranty claim. The timer is bad. You will need to get behind the control panel and remove the timer and replace the timer. First I would call whoever it is that yall bought the dryer through and see how long your warranty is. Most of the warranties are only 1 year. But if you bought a extended warranty then you are covered. The part can be found at repairclinic.com
