Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
Hello, and thanks for your help! My husband checked the breaker & outlet, no problem there. What should we do next? We are air drying all of our clothes at this point 'cause we don't have the $ to call a repairman or Sears. We are extremely upset that this $1,000 dryer has lasted us only 3 years!!! I was raised believing Sears/Kenmore were the best & most dependable appliances you could buy and now I'm very disappointed :(
I have been reading on line about loose connections on several circuit boards. There are three circuit boards and the interconnecting wiring harness. There is a possibility these connections are not tight enough, and then get oxidized. If you are comfortable taking the top and back off you can get to the circuit cards unplug clean and reconnect these. If you live in a dry climate you can cause an electrostatic build up and damage these cards. After unplugging the machine make sure you do not have any static by grounding yourself to a grounded metal object. I have worked on several similar circuits but not on this model. If you can get these cards unplugged you can clean the terminal strips with a soft eraser. Go to Radio shack and get a non-conductive dielectric grease. put a very very thin film of this on the terminal strips. The circuit diagrams and trouble shooting codes should be inside of the machine taped to the metal sides.
