Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore HE 2 Dryer

Dryer is less than 2 years old. The Control Lock button started beeping constantly about a month ago. Unplugged the dryer for a few hours and re-tried. Worked fine until it started the same thing again. Tried to unplug again but now Control Lock is on and will not go off after holding button.

We've check all Breakers. When you switch off the Breaker and flip it back on, the Control Lock does go off and stays off for about 30 seconds, but the dryer will NOT turn on. Then the Control Lock light comes on.

PLEASE! Any suggestions? I absolutely refuse to pay Sears to fix this piece of junk after paying so much for the set not even 2 years ago. Not the first problem we've encountered...

    Thank you so much. I will check. I had figured all I had was the 1 year warranty and had given up hope. Now I have a glimmer...

Kenmore oasis dryer cycle signal beeping constantly


This symptom indicates a stuck key on the user interface control board.
Replacing this control board would most likely fix this type of problem.


You can order this part from SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, PartSelect.com etc.



Before buying any parts I suggest you access the interface ribbon and disconnect it and then connect it back and see if there is any improvement.


You might also remove the interface from the console and check the console for any stuck buttons.

Remember to unplug the unit first.

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

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
