I have a Sears Kenmore elite model# 11072942100 that will not always stay running when pushing the start button, however if I hold down the start button and then turn the dial it will eventually stay


Rick,
Good call on the timer switch. If the teeth have worn at the start position, starting would be delayed until the timer is rotated beyond the worn area. The normal operation of the start button is that it should to be pushed in and held for a second, to prevent inadvertent starts.The problem could be related to the door latch. The door safety switch will make intermittent contact if the door is not completely latched. If the door has become misaligned from downward pressure, it may not be drawing the door in enough to push in the switch. First check the alignment of the door. If the door is low, try bending the hinges back up. Open the door just enough to get your fingers inside the bottom of the door and slowly pull up. If the door is better aligned it may push the switch in better. Close the door and try the dryer.Next try holding the door in with one hand and pressing the start button. If the dryer starts every time while pushing the door in, then the latch is worn and should be replaced. I hope this solves the problem.
Good luck

Interior lights stay on


either the lights are turned on manually from the headlight/interior light switch, or you have a defective door switch that is telling the module that a door is open, or you have a door that is open, or your module that controls the interior lights is defective. I would start with the simple things, I would make sure all doors are closed. If they are, then check the headlight/interior switch to make sure the interior lights are in the off position, then check all of the door switches. They are simple normally closed push button switches that should be mounted on the car frame near the door hinges.

Push the start button. The dryer will run. Release start button and the dryer stops. The end of cycle chime sounds. The timer ticks. Placed all controles in every position and the results are the same.If...


probably has a broken belt,there is what is called a "Broken Belt" switch by the motor inside on the idler pulley tensioner for the belt,if the belt breaks this switch opens so the dryer wont run without the drum turning so as not to overheat and burn your clothes,replace the drum belt and you should be good to go

My interior lights won't turn off and kills my battery where's the fuse or how do I fix it?


It appears that one of the door operated switches for the interior light is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light staying on. It could also be that the "Off/ Door/On" Control switch on the main interior is faulty. Check each door switch by operating manually with finger with door open to see if light goes out.

It this check makes light go out then it could be that one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in and observing if interior light goes off, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact. If these checks don't produce results then there could be a problem with one of the door switches being faulty and making constant contact.

Interior lights staying on causing dead battery. also interior lights flash off and on when driving


Inside the door jamb is a little plunger the it pushed in when the door is closed. It sounds like it is not working properly. If it was working properly it turns on the interior lights when you open the door and turns them off when you close the door. Hope this helps.

Door is closed and the light stays on. after a while non of the buttons will work any suggestions.


I have the same problem but my interior drum light stays on whether door is open or closed; in either case the control panel becomes in-operable after about five minutes. I unplug the machine for 5 to 20 minutes then plug it back in and it is powered "on" the moment I plug it in (i don't even have to push the power button). Then the light remains on but i am able to operate the control panel so i can do a load of clothes. Then if the machine sits idle for no more than five minutes, the control panel becomes in-operable again and the interior drum light stays on.

Any one have a clue???

How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open


Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.
