HE4 Kenmore Elite Dryer error code 4e

Model # 110.c85081400

My dryer is dispaying 4e in diagnostics mode. All the lights are red except the clothes dry indicator which is green. I put a wet cloth on the sensors and it beeps.

Any ideas would be helpful.

    Yes I did clean out the lint filter completely and tested that the sensors where working.

    I called a local appliance shop and they came today. The service guy said that the door was not closing properlly. He said that he sees this problem on this type of dryer often and that typically it is because people lean on the door when they are adding and removing items from the dryer which throws the door out of alignment.

    So if you are getting this error try and make sure the door is aligned and closing correctly.

If you have ever removed the lint filter area completely via the screws that hold the plastics in so you could clean it then remove it again and insure that you plugged in the two wires that go to the strip sensor.. (moisture sensor)

Kenmore he4 error code 4E, Light is burnt out and just makes beepin noises, i have unpluged it what should i try next?

From what you described it sounds like the door switch is faulty. In the test mode when you saw the 4E you should also hear a beep when opening or closing the dryer door.
Here is a link to the replacement part.

I have a kenmore elite dryer hE4. the dryer will run for a while then shut off... and will not restart for a while, i have changed the moisture sensor, thermistor, thermal fuse, the moisture sensor wire...

its a door switch problem. Make sure the door is latching properly at the top. If the top latch doesn't engage properly the door switch won't make contact.
Try holding the door switch closed with your finger and starting the dryer. If it still wont start and you have no error codes displaying you will most likely have to replace the switch. if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Kenmore Elite HE4 - Smartheat Quietpak9 ERROR CODE 4E


Huuum,at your service!

With an error code.
This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems.
if they are not serious, or they are a temp glitch!

How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Bless You

Thank You

Kenmore elite He 4 model number 11085087400

Sorry to take so long getting back to you. 4E is a door latch error code. It means your door latch is not working. Double check the wiring to make sure you don't have any loose or broken connections. More than likely, you will have to replace the switch. This is not one of your standard error codes that you will find in any tech sheet. I have experienced this problem before. If you go to and type in your model number, you can find a replacement listed under the "Cabinet Parts" heading as item number 41 (part number 8519323). HINT: If you order this as item number 19 (part number 8283288) it also includes the wire harness. I hope this helps you. If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Good luck to you.

4E problem on kenmore dryer

Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!

Hi! Puddrikko
I hope I can help you, I just need to make shure I am checking the correct Model Error code. If your first three numbers of the model number is 110 this may be a Thermistor Failure. If you have any more information let me now, I will try and help you.
