This could be a couple different things you might want to check.
One is the door switch. You can test it with an ohmmeter. If the door switch is bad, you won't be able to turn the dryer on. Next is the start button. Not as likely to fail but it can happen, you can test as well with an ohmmeter in the Rx1 position with the wires disconnected.
Lastly would be the control panel itself. You can use a voltmeter to test if power is coming out of the panel and also test power going to the motor. If there is power to the motor and motor is not spinning, it may be bad. If not power to the motor, then check control board, door switch, and start switch.

Sometimes but not always, a person can reset the machine by leaving it unplugged for several hours. While it is unplugged you can press and hold the start button for 10 seconds to drain all remaining power out of the machine's memory.

My kenmore elite he4 dryer-model#110.95087401 keep beeping and the end of cycle lights are going on from off to high and back to off right through the drying cycle.


I had the same problem and eventually none of the cycle buttons light up or the cycle time display. So it would not run at all. After taking it apart once and fiddling with the cycle push buttons, it worked for one load then would not work again. I could see 3 of the led faintly illuminated and unplugging and plugging back in the power changed nothing. Then I removed the plastic ring of cycle buttons that is between the panel circuit board and the outer plastic. (There a several layers to get to the ring.) Now I use a long allen wrench to push on the switch on the circuit board. I left the middle start button in place. That does not seem to cause a problem. Several loads now and still working. So it looks like the ring on plastic buttons don't release from the circuit board buttons causing a problem.

Kenmore dryer doesn't recognize when the door is closed.


first try unpluging the dryer for 5 minutes and then check it,this resets the computer board just like your house computer or you could have a bad door switch or something wrong with the main board,the main board is alot more than the door switch,if you have a meter you can read out the door switch,there should be a tech sheet in the dryer maybe taped to the side wall behind the bottom panel that might help you out.

Sears elite he dryer stopped working


Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at repairclinic.com. When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board
