It takes a long tiom, before I can turn it on and I press the start button until it can turn on and then it turns off after 10 seconds .Is there a way I can reboot the control panel?

Intermittent Start (expanded explanation)

Lint will jam the start/run switch on the motor. Vacuum out the motor real good and check that the switch moves freely, and all the wires to it are plugged in good.

When pushing the start button the dryer will come on for about 10 minutes and then stop. Then sometimes it doesnt come on at all

If it starts right back up after stopping there is an electrical problem maybe at the motor start switch. If you have to wait for an hour before it will start again then the problem might be that the motor needs to be cleaned of a lint build up.

My dryer is dead. I have ohmed out the cord and changed the dryer control board (8546219). Still dead, nothing at all. Any other ideas? I have checked the fuse and it is good. I had a local repair man look...

hello again,

no thier doesn't seem to big issue with with reconditioned control panels in fact i dare say yours is good since the dryer didnt start with the original one and still wont start with the one you have replaced. having checked teh thermal fuse to be good and with basically 2 control boards yet the dryer doesnt run it seems very possible the motor is going to be the problem...not sure what led ya to the control board yet it the drum doesnt turn the very part that turns it when power is applied to,if it has powewr to it and doesnt turn the drum it would seem to me its bad....dont get me wrong on this but its like having a broken leg and going to the doctor and saying i believe that my heart is weak since my legs hurts and totally disregarding the broken leg

I have a frigidaire affinity dryer that will dry for a few minutes then turn off and say e68 wich means one of the buttons are stuck i took the panel of the front and checked the buttons and they all seem...

Run the service diagnostic mode to determine which button is stuck. Start by pressing and holding the Select and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds to reset the control.

Rotate the cycle selector knob 5 turns counterclockwise to the second position from the bottom immediately after the buzzer sounds.

Press and hold the Options and Cancel buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds. The control enters the test mode and the buzzer will sound 3 times with all of the LEDs flashing.

Rotate the cycle selector knob 4 turns clockwise to the second position from the top and the dryer motor runs with the heating element off. The buttons can now be tested to determine which is stuck.

Press each button and all corresponding LEDs should light. If the LEDs corresponding to a certain button lights up without pressing the button or if the LEDs do not light up when the button is pressed, that button must be stuck or not making any contact when pressed.

Replace the control board if the stuck button cannot be unstuck or if there's no button that's apparently stuck but the fault code persists. Let us know if you need further advice.

Kenmore Elite HE4 beeps three times when start panel is pressed and wont turn on

FWIW ... the Sears guy came by yesterday. The problem was apparently that the door latch was not operating to the extent that the sensors thought the door was open. He is replacing the latch next week. He adjusted the old one in the mean tiome and it appears to be working fine.

This kind of stunned me, since my wife reported an electric zap and the interior light burned out as the dryer went dead -- so I was sure it would be a fried circuit board -- but, no, a little jiggling of the latch seemed to clear it up....
