2009 Kenmore Dryer. Wondering why it seems to only work on 1 drying cycle? Everytime I try to put it on another cycle all the lights flash and beep...and nothing...


sounds like the washer might not be spinning the water out of the clothes good enough . 1 60 minute cycle should dry them more than dry enough .

I opened the dryer door to put in a load of clothes and the light inside flashed and went off. power comes on, i can set to the drying time, but when i press start i get 3 short quick beeps...no error


It sounds like maybe the switch that recognizes your door is closed my be bad or out of adjustment. Look for a 3/8" to 1/2" opening on the face of the surface that the dryer door meets. There may be a small plate that acts as the actuator. It may also be a small rod sticking out that gets pushed in by the door. Either way, try to actuate it with your hand or screwdriver with the door open and press the start button and see if that works. If not you'll possibly have to take the dryer apart to get at the switch. If you're comfortable with using basic tools this can be done and you just need to be patient while doing it. Test the switch if you have an ohmeter to see if it works. An ohm reading is fairly simple to do and meters cost less than $30 at a Home Depot. Don't get intimidated by their dials and number readouts. (O.L. = Open, 0 ohms = closed) If the switch doesnt change states it's bad and you'll need to search the p/n on the switch in Google. Someone on Ebay or other sites will likely sell these switches for $5 or less. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire Dryer model # LEQ1442ES0. The lights come on and beep at us like normal when I change settings but when I press start, they just blink and beep but wont turn on.


Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding your Frigidaire dryer is not starting and the lights just blink. It sounds like a faulty door switch or control panel. I would check to make sure the latch or door strike is not cracked or broken if the door is not closing properly that could be the cause of your dryer not starting.

You could also perform a reset on your dryer and that could help clear any faulty error codes within your dryer. To reset your dryer you would unplug the power cord for ten minutes. I hope this has been beneficial. -Matt

How to get the error code test on Frigidaire affinity model FARE1011MW


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are receiving an error code on your Frigidaire dryer, model# FARE1011MW. I see that when you press the start button, your dryer beeps and the drying light begins flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Malber Dryer won't start (sine-wave light flashing)


The dryer is easy: turn it on and turn the control to 0. It will beep. Then turn it to the desired program (20, 40, 60 minutes or a pre-programmed cycle), it will beep again and start. If there's a red light you have to empty the water tank at the front on the left. The washer is a normal washer. Just pick your program and press start (be patient as it takes a while to get cranking). Sometimes you have to really push the door closed very hard. Try and turn the control to 12 o'clock before setting it again.

Whirlpool Duet GGW9200LL1 will not start


The electric flash does not sound cool, It sounds like you have a door switch problem. Check to see if the door switch button is in tact. If it is , you may have to go after the door switch itself. Try this, press more time, less time, more time, less time buttons in that order, the whole panel should light up, open the dryer door, you should hear 1 beep and OE displayed, If you have this the door switch is ok, Catriver

DYRER PROBLEMS

I also unplugged the dryer waited a few minutes and plugged back in. The dryer had a code flashing saying it lost power, I reset the dryer and it has been working great now. Evedently it must be sensitive.
