Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore elite smartheat quietpak 9 drer that will not turn on (gets power ok) because the "check lint screen" light comes on when I try to start any cycle. I have completely blown out the hose allof the way to outside the house and flipped the circuit breaker many times. Is there a reset button or way to bypass that signal? Thanks - I am covered with nasty old lint and ready to bring out the axe.

    I wrapped wire for good contact and taped the wires together after removing the fuse - did not help.

    Any other idea?

    Thanks

    If I knew how to do all of that, I would not have needed basic help.
    I think I will check the function of my phone line and call Sears - thanks anyway.

Such problem is commonly caused by a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. Disconnect power then remove the screws from the toe panel and remove the panel to expose the lint duct.

Remove the three screws from the lint duct and remove the duct.

The thermal fuse can now be bypassed or replaced if necessary.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and taping them together or jumping a wire between them and insulate properly. Once done, plug the dryer in then close and start it. The thermal fuse indeed blown and needs to be replaced along the exhaust thermistor if the dryer runs.

    Check the resistance of the thermistor then refer to the thermistor resistance table below. Replace the thermistor if the resistance is not within the range given in the table. Test the continuity of the thermistor harness connector to the connector on the control board if the resistance is good. Replace the harness if found broken, if not, replace the control board.

Control locked


Mine has an "auto dry" button. It says underneath, "Press & hold 3 seconds..." to unlock control. I did it, it worked.
