Not starting 1 yr old kenmore elite smartheat quietpak9 HE4
My 1 yr old dryer suddently stopped working - no lights at all. Open and measured the volatage from the wall outlet to the m/c is 120v on two wires.
I think there might be a trip switch - but not able to locate - Operating manual is missing too - can some one help me please ? Thanks.

I checked Sears website and they have a service plan available for machines no longer under warranty. For $193 plus tax they will fix the machine and give you an additional 12 months coverage. This plan covers labor and parts up to $500. If they cannot repair the machine they will give you a $500 credit towards a new one. The guy came out today and replace the front control panel and another panel located on the top left side of the drum. It works fine now.

leave door open and press the rubber botton inside, \ I just hooked up mine and it did same thing, i pushed botton light went out, so this told me the door wasnt closing correctly, you have to push hard on door first couple times. hope this helps you.
might need a clean out keeping heat inside of dryer,or you have abad motor,take the vent line off the back of dryer and run it to see if the block is in the vent line or in the dryer,also take off bottom panel,unplug dryer,take out lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides into,if it's blocked clean it out and you should be all set,usually the thermal fuse pops when this happens so that's why i say you could have a bad motor
remove top 3 screws along rear..remove screw each side of control on top .next while pushing toward rear on top edge of control pull up and out at bottom edge where control meets lower section lift up each corner may need to remove screws holding main control in place panel has 1 02 connectors on main board there is a release clip on each connector
Manual might be available on line type in your make and full model. Could well be the bulb that blew. Sounds like the door switch thou i see by other postings some times the filters can cause a similer problem
