These symptoms characterize a problem with a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is wired in series with the motor and cuts power to the motor when it blows and the motor cannot run. Dryer function works when the motor is not running. Click on the link below for the detailed procedure in troubleshooting this kind of dryer problem.

SOURCE: 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....

SOURCE: DRYER WON'T TURN ON JUST A ELECTRONIC SOUNDING BEEP WHEN I PRESS START.

Check all fuses and circuit breakers , if they are fine, then the problem is with the control timer. You need to have the control timer replaced.

SOURCE: Our dryer is just beeping

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The beeping sound usually comes when the circuit board which supplies power to the unit also known as the electronic control goes bad and needs replacement. You can also test the door switch before replacing the control, if the switch is fine then control replacement is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer says locked


The Operating Instructions say this:

Control Lock
To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop
the washer, press OPTIONS and Select at the same
time and hold for about 10 seconds until the
(Control Lock) lights up. “LOC” will be displayed
alternately with the estimated cycle time. Turning
the Cycle Selector knob or pressing any button
will produce flashing indicator lights and/or beeping.
To unlock the controls, press and hold OPTIONS
and Select for about 10 seconds.

It won't stop beeping all the time. We have tried everything. It beeps 3 times, all the buttons light up and it makes me crazy!! I want it to beep when the load is done - that's it.


When the Cycle Signal Control is ON (turn off) a signal will sound at the end of each cycle and
during the Press Saver setting (some models). The volume is adjustable on some
models.

My dryer keeps beeping after 30seconds of turning it on. I have pressed the 'LOCK' key to unlock & even then it still does the beeping thing! Could this be the motherboard packing up?


I had the same problem. My wife was about to take an axe to the darn thing. The frustrating thing was that it was beeping 3 times and the status lights were flashing. The manual only described 4 beeps (Dryer ran too long) or 6 beeps (Push button does not function). It finally dawned on me that it was beeping two sets of three beeps (i.e 6 beeps). The corrective action was to press buttons lightly and release. I pressed on every button first lightly then heavily with no success. I pounded on the instrument panel; still no luck. Finally I pressed the Options button and the Select button simultaneously for a second and heard a click. After that, no more beeping. According to the manual this activates a "LOCK' feature if you hold them down long enough. But in my case, the lock light flashed but didn't engage and after the beeping stopped, I left well enough alone.

Hope this helps.

Dryer turns itself on & beeps, then off again


aye, see if you can enter the diagnosis mode. What we are looking for is the F-02 code. This will flash when there is a stuck button or user interface problem and only displayed in the test mode. With the unit plugged in and all indicator lights off, select any button except stop. Press for 3 seconds, release for 3 seconds, press for 3 seconds, release for 3 secnds and press for 3 seconds. If you did it right 88 should appear. Press the same button again and if there is a error, it should show up. If no error code shows, open the consol and check the p-5 connector. This will be the interface ribbon to the board. Reseat it and see if the problem stops. Catriver
