I have a Kenmore elite he5 gas dryer and when it is turned on it will not spin. Can you tell me why?


If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings OTHER WISE CHECK FOR A LOOSE WORN BELT

Won't work. No service code.


the first things to check is the door switch,open the door and push in the switch,if it doesn\'t click when pushed in the switch is bad,next thing to check is the belt,on some models there\'s a switch on the pulley assy. if there isn\'t any tension on the pulley the dryer won\'t start.if you need more help i need the model number off of the dryer,open the door and lolook around the opening where you put the clothes in and you\'ll see a tag with the model number,if the dryer hasn\'t been taken apart and cleaned out the thermal fuse could have popped,if the dryer gets to hot inside from a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is blocked the fuse will pop and it\'s non resetable.

Heat turns off while clothes still wet


change the gas coils on the gas valve by removing the 2 screws holding the bracket for the coils,remove the wire harnesses to each coil,dont worry one coil has 2 wires the other has 3 so quite hard to reverse

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?


Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

During the drying cycle, the dryer door opens


Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.

Dryer works for few minutes then stops


clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

Dryer door pops open. leaves burn marks on clothes.


check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.
