    I have the same problem. The panel won't light up when touched, but the drum light is on. Why did this happen this week? The others seemed to happen the same week. Is this weird or what? It was fine yesterday....

    dryer does not work, but lights inside is on, press buttons and nothing happens

    I have had the same problem, first time about 8 months ago. No lights, but drum light was on. Found out online that several people with same problem say circuitry in panel is faulty. Saw several posts on line on this. Then, one day just started working again. Now, last week, stopped again. And SEARS is NO help. I live alone, hardly use the thing, it hasn't been abused, bought it in 2004, paid a lot of money and it stinks.

    exactly what happened to mine. I havent even had it for 2 years yet. Sears wants 65 just to look at it.

With mine I found that some of the plastic front buttons had come loose (?!?) and at least one was always pressig down - when took the front panel completely appart, and used a plastic chopstick to lightly press the real buttons inside, everyhing worked! Some of the buttons had come loose (realy cheaply attached, so no wonder). Currenty letting the glue dry - lets see if that works. WARNING:  Don't try this yourself unless you are an electrician or computer service professional! Even turned off and unplugged, any electrical appliance is still dangerous!

Hi! juysu
Please check the power cord, by checking if there is 240V on the power terminals inside the back of the machine where the power cord is connected.

Dryer turns on but drum will not spin


Sounds like the belt is bad or the motor needs to be replaced. Unplug unit. When you open it up get a block of wood (a piece of 2x4 works) if your units are stacked on top of each other, pull the dryer towards you approx 2inches. You are going to push on the top of the dryer and insert the board underneath the dryer. The reason you pulled the dryer forward was to keep the dryer from slipping backwards while working on it. Now check the two bottom corners on the front of they dryer.occasionally there are screws holding the kick plate. Take these off, pull out and down and look for broken belts. Be sure to vacuum any loose lint while you have the unit open. Good luck.

Sears elite he dryer stopped working


Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at repairclinic.com. When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board

Kenmore elite he4 dryer wont run


Hi! crystal2hd
My he3 dryer does not have a door lock. The door switch turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. Make sure this switch is not damaged. Unplug the dryer before removing the front cover.

4E problem on kenmore dryer


Same problem, no panel lights, nothing, but drum light works. Several postings on othe sites say the cuicuitry board is faulty. Sears, in the Phillippines, or India, do notheing. Paid lots for this dryer, live alone and really don't abuse it or even use it that much. Is the there a class action suit maybe? all I want is for it to work!
