Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer is not starting. When I press the start button I get 3 quick beeps as if I made a mistake in settings. Reading other similar posts here I have done the following; cleaned it all out inside plus the vent. Tested the thermal sensor (white skinny ling thing) and it read 0 ohms. Right next to it is another sensor that read something in the middle so not open. It is diamond shaped in its mount to the pipe and has a tab like thing that sticks down into the vent. Repaiclinic.com has a part that it looks like it is a thermistor assembly. The belt is good and if I turn the drum I see the blower turn as well. I pushed the door switch and it feels like it is properly functioning but could not get the light to light or not, replaced light as it was original but still nothing nor can I get it to start no matter however I press the door switch. All I get is the 3 beeps after I press start. The control panel seems to work just fine unlike several other posts where people are having moisture problems. Any ideas will be most helpful I will try right away and will be most thankful to try something that will avoid a major service call days after Christmas. Thanks in advanced.

Sounds like the door switch is bad. Push the rubber grey plunger at the top of the door opening in and release. If it does not click, it is bad. You should be able to feel and hear it clicking. A new door switch is available at https://www.appliancezone.com/SearchProducts.aspx?id=8577274

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....
