Question about Kenmore 63932 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer starts, then stops, beeping 3 times.

I have seen other comments re: this problem. I have not taken any corrective actions yet, eg, replace even heat board. I did not notice the 3-beep reference in any other listing. It does actually run for anywhere between 1 and 3 minutes. It does NOT stop when I set the setting to "Air fluff / no heat". Does "Even heat control board" seem most likely candidate? Are there other symptoms I should be looking for?

    Followup:

    After cleaning everything I could find, even running without the exhaust vent, I still had a problem. I removed the Console assembly and found Technical instructions. In it was actually listed the problem above, in particular mentioning the 3 beeps. This indicates (1) failed Thermistor, (2) Evenheat control. I also have a Sears Dryer repair manual. After digging through that, I found the method for testing the Thermister (nust read 0 - continuity - on an Ohmmeter). After testing the Thermister, I found it did not meet the continuity test. I also tested the Thermal fuse - it did meet the continuity test. At this point I have ordered replacement Thermister from Repair Clinic.

Seems that the most likely problem is that it is overheating and triggering safety cut out. Most likely reason is that the airflow is somehow blocked. Check filtering and air entry and outlets for blockages, lint build up etc..

My duet dryer control lock blinks and beeps, but will not clear or start. What is the fix?

Resoldered all LEDs to correct(mostly) a dead control with interior light . Cleaned corrosion from ribbon sockets but lights occasionally flicker when functioning. Pull power for 30 min to be able to use dryer but control lock light eventually comes on and beeps even while running. Once stopped it will not clear or start.. when I can get to the test menu all works and no errors. What is next ?

How do I stop my kenmore dryer, model 970-c87172, from beeping? Drying, cool down, wrinkle rid and clean lint filter lights flash 3 times. Start light doesn't flash at all. It does this even

Hi Brenda

First off It seems that you model is not correct. Kenmore model numbers start with 3 number followed by a . and then some more numbers. Most Kenmore laundry numbers start with 110.xxxxxxxx. The number you have looks like a serial number which is no help.

Start/stop lights are flashing with "50" minutes readout. should be OFF. how do I clear it for good?

these dryers have alot of board problems i've seen them beep and then start up by themselves gotta love frigidaire,the computer board took the place of the timer so if the dryer didn't advance to off and got stuck in the same spot you knew it was the timer,so if it doesn't count down and beeps it sounds like a board issue and sometimes the board can't read itself out and you won't get a code.try unplugging it for like 5 to 10 minutes and then plug it back in to see if it resets the board but it probably will go back to doing the same thing

Dryer check filter light keeps blinking and dryer will not start cleaned lint filter and nothing happened display on control board blinks when dryer is turned on and that's about it can you assist dyer...

I had the same problem, Check Filter light blinking and beeping, could not select drying type or start dryer. Short story, turned out to be the Less time button was stuck pushed in. Long story, a week before I had replaced the drum rollers and belt, everything was working fine for the week after then this problem. Totally by accident, after trying all the recommended actions (unplugging, pushing buttons, etc.) leaning on the right front corner would stop the beeping and allow the machine to work. Pushing all the buttons, I found the Less time button would not click. Apparently, when I took the control panel off to change the rollers and belt I flexed the control panel enough to misaligne the button and switch. Pulling the back of the control panel loose and making sure the push button and switch were aligned and working correctly everything works fine now.

Fisher & Paykel Auto Sensor Dryer stops & beeps constantly

Hi emkboyce

my Fisher Paykel auto sensor dryer keeps stopping and beeping, i have to stop it and and re start.

I had the same problem. I took it off the wall and vacuumed up all the lint from everywhere including around the back and including taking off the back and vacuuming everything I could reach inside. I then used a damp cloth to get rid of the rest of the lint/dust.

I thought I was wasting my time but guess what, the problem has gone.

Good luck!

Won't start - 3 beeps when Start button pushed

CHECK THE FOLLOWING--

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.

Dell Laptop Won't Boot Up

Don't take this as a definate answer, as I am only going on from what I've seen close friends do though I don't remove my Battery from my Laptop even though.
I do have some Electronic sexperience though very limited so my answer is You don't need a battery for a Laptop to boot and it doesn't matter if it doesn't hold a charge anymore,

Your problem I suspect is something else, meaning without proper (enough) input regarding what the Laptop does and or doesn't do, eg. starts the P.O.S.T then stops, 3 beeps or 1 , possibly none. Can you get into the BIOS setup? Maybe Windows starts loading and stops somewhere in the boot process.

If you need anymore assisatnce then feel free to ask.

My dryer keeps beeping after 30seconds of turning it on. I have pressed the 'LOCK' key to unlock & even then it still does the beeping thing! Could this be the motherboard packing up?

I had the same problem. My wife was about to take an axe to the darn thing. The frustrating thing was that it was beeping 3 times and the status lights were flashing. The manual only described 4 beeps (Dryer ran too long) or 6 beeps (Push button does not function). It finally dawned on me that it was beeping two sets of three beeps (i.e 6 beeps). The corrective action was to press buttons lightly and release. I pressed on every button first lightly then heavily with no success. I pounded on the instrument panel; still no luck. Finally I pressed the Options button and the Select button simultaneously for a second and heard a click. After that, no more beeping. According to the manual this activates a "LOCK' feature if you hold them down long enough. But in my case, the lock light flashed but didn't engage and after the beeping stopped, I left well enough alone.

Hope this helps.
