    Wow, just today our HE4 dryer started beeping and lighting up like a Christmas Tree, wth? We've unplugged, let it sit a while, plugged it back and still doing the same thing. This really stinks 'cause we have 5 kids ages 9months-18 years with the little one in CLOTH DIAPERS!!!!! Plus, no warranty! Please, anyone, HELP!!! sydver@msn.com

Hi! debby1114 and sydver
I can imagine why several people are have similar problem, lets start with the basics and check the voltage at the wall recepticle. If this is the HE4 units made by Whirlpool for Kenmore, the first three digits of the model number could be 110. Let me know if you have had the power at the wall checked, and the breaker. This looks like a power problem to me.

When I push start it beeps 3 times. Lights on the right work, lights on the far left don't light up.




Alright, pretty unconventional, but simple and Genius on my part!!! Not sure if we're talking about the same models, but I was cruising this site with the same problem.... K, so it's making three beeps right? Check inside the DRYER (maybe same issue w/ washer, I dunno), but there's a button on the top-inside.... DEPRESS THAT BUTTON, and while holding it down, START THE DRYER (HOLD TO START), if it starts working, this tip is for you!

1) on the opposite side, where the door depresses that same button on the dryer door... you ready for this... see step two ;)

2) SUPER GLUE A PENNY IN THAT INDENTATION PART, your problem is there's not enough connection, and the door is no longer holding that same button down...

3) TA DAH!! Since a repair guy could've charged ya like 50+ bucks, I'll take... emmm.. 25$, email me at Kumatrev@yahoo.com on where to send the check, or just shoot me an email to say thanks ;)

Dryer isn't working


I had success.  I found the manual....unplugged the dryer, and rotated the inside drum several times to check for any coins or small objects.  I did not find anyything, but if something small was lodged it is not hampering the dryer.  I plugged it back in and it worked right away...

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....

First time use, not working


The door switch is not closed or the board is not sensing the door is closed.
Push in at the top of the door to make sure it is latched at the top.
This is a common problem on the HE4's that was not a problem with the HE3's. We are hearing from Kenmore and Whirlpool that a fix is coming, a different latch I think.
Even if pushing in at the top makes it work, call for service so the problem can be addressed.
Post back if you have any questions.
