Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King Size Capacity Quiet Pack II Dryer

Our 3 year old Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King Size Capacity Quiet Pack II Dryer door keeps on popping open. I tried opening up the metal male pin to lock in the door into the female plastic clip but it has not worked. We now have to duct tape the door closed every time so it won't pop open and shut down. Was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and what was the fix. Thanks....

Cutiepie, I've seen this many times on these dryers. You need to replace the door hinge. Not really a hard job to do. Post a model number (inside door) and we'll get you a part number...Catriver..post back.

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King size capacity Quiet Pak 1 dryer doesn't turn on

Check to see if the door switch is working. When you push and release it, it should click. If not, it will need to be replaced.
If the switch is good, then the only other component that would cause that problem is the thermal fuse. If you could post your model number I could direct you to the part you need.

Dryer doesn't work when I want it to

do you mean you changed out the dryer and the same thing is happening?if so it's not the dryer,either your vent line is clogged with lint and the dryer is cutting out from over heating and coming back on when it cools down or you have an electrical problem because there is no way your gonna have that same problem on two dryers,try running it with the vent line removed from the back of the dryer let me know about this

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty King Size Capacity Quiet Pack II Dryer shuts off

If the venting is clogged this will happen. And that is a good thing because it is a safety measure built in to prevent fires. There is a thermostat that can tell when your dryer is over-heating,(usually caused by clogged venting by lint) and this devise tells the heating element to turn off so as not to create a fire. Clean out venting, inspect thermostats and element, replace if neccesary. You may only have to clean out the venting.
