Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Last night I dried multiple loads of laundry . . . the dryer worked fine. This morning when I pressed the button to turn it on nothing happened. The control panel is completely blank, as if the dryer is not plugged in. The dryer has power because when I opened the door the inside light came on. This has happened before, but the next day the dryer works!! Any idea what the problem could be with the dryer? Thanks.

Id like to see if I could help you so you will have to use more definitive terms, "Start" I'm guessing that you mean that the drum doesn't turn? (the lights come on and you push the start button and the drum does not turn) If that's the case I would start with the door switch, Best to start with the most obvious first. Try jumping it to over ride wait your response

Hello,

The most likely part that has gone out is the thermal fuse. What will make that go out so quickly is a blocked vent causing excessive heat build in dryer. Did the dryer that this new one replaced havea similar problem of not starting or perhaps it ran but took forever to dry a load of clothing? if that was the case the venting caused the problem with both old and new dryer

Good luck
I hope this helps,if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

Dryer won't Start


the problem might be the start switch itself. if the switch is going bad it could have either a carbon buildup on the contacs preventing it from starting (unlikely) or the contacs are wearing out and it is more hit or miss if it will start. as time goes on the problem will get wose
