Question about Kenmore Elite HE3 Steam 8674 Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer turns on, but with every cycle option, the dry and cooling lights are both illuminated, the former blinking. When I try to start the cycle, I hear a short hum, then nothing. The barrel doesn't turn, nor is there any heat. The timer still counts down as if it were running and the same hum is heard every other minute or so. Any ideas? Thanks.

Possible that the motor capacitor is faulty and not lettingg the start up. Opne and get access and change the capacitor . If you are hearring then hum then when you touch the motor it should be quite warm which confirms the failure off the capaccitor or the winding of the motor.
The timerr runs accordingly not knowing if the motor rotates.
Hope this helps.

Kenmore dryer code ad


The "Ad" in the display indicates that the dryer is in the Auto Dry cycle.



The dryer will run in the Auto Dry cycle until the moisture sensor bars detect no more moisture in the garments being dried. The machine will then go into a cool down period and then end the cycle.



If the dryer is getting unusually hot, I recommend checking for a restriction in the air flow. Make sure that your lint screen is properly cleaned before starting every cycle. Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for a kink or a restriction. Check the exhaust ducting to the outside of the house for lint build-up or a restriction. This may help the dryer perform properly.

Samsung front loading dryer the display shows rotating circle rather than time remaining


Rotating blinking lights in the display is probably an indication that the Wrinkle Prevent option has been selected. Wrinkle Prevent will continue to tumble the dryer without heat after the cycle has ended to help prevent wrinkles from setting in. When this option is selected by pressing the Wrinkle Prevent button on the control panel, the display will count down the estimated cycle time; when the cycle ends, the display will show lights blinking in a circular (or actually rectangular) motion.

To deactivate, simply press the Wrinkle Prevent button again so the light is not illuminated.

MY DRYER DONT START,she make a sound but not start


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I understand you are having trouble with your Frigidaire dryer not starting. Let's try resetting your dryer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is best to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn on your dryer. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, then at this point, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. You dryer may either be experiencing a communication error with the main control or the timer itself may not be operating correctly. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.

Blinking AD


AD is auto dry you may need to clean the sensor or you may have a fauilty one ...Auto Dry Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at the selected temperature to the desired dryness level. The dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level of the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics. The estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5 minutes, then the outside of the display will light up in a circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically being determined by the sensors. When the load has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle during unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be displayed. Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads. Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying time. For cycle selection turn the knob on the front of the dryer control panel. The light will illuminate next to the cycle selected. The following is a brief description for what cycles should be chosen for certain items and materials to be dried.

Clothes are taking 3 cycles to dry and cooling light on front wont shut off


The vent is clogged.  To make sure, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run the dryer normally.  If your clothes dry normally, then have a professional vent cleaning company take care of the vent.  
The cooling light will always stay on during the run.  When it is blinking, the heat has stopped and is in the cooling process.
If there is no heating, you have a problem with the high limit switch or something else electrical and needs to be addressed by a qualified LG technician.

Cooling light


The lights that come on are what the machine is going to do for the entire cycle. If you notice it will start to flash towards the end of the cycle. That is when it's actually "cooling" the clothes to try and reduce wrinkles. The dry light flashes while it's drying. As for the not heating at all you need to check for blown fuses or popped breakers.
