Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Why can't I cancel the automatic cycle setting on my dryer.

Console is set on Bulky/Bedding cycle for 64 minutes. When I press Pause/Cancel all the console lights go out then come back on to the same cycle setting when I release the cancel button. If I open the door the check lint filter light goes out, but comes back on if I try cancel again. Whwn I push start the dryer starts and heats and dries clothes, counts down to 0 then when that is done, instead of going off, it resets to the 64 minute bulky/bedding cycle. None of the other cycle select buttons except "Timed Dry" do anything at all. When I push timed dry it shows 40 minutes and then goes back to the 64 minute bulky setting when I release it. If I push start while still holding the timed dry button it seems to start a normal timed dry cycle. It heats and dries fine. When that cycle is done it sets up again for the 64 minute bulky cycle.

SOURCE: Intermitten Heat up

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

SOURCE: About half of the control panel cycle buttons do

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.


Thanks !!

How do I run the dryer on no heat setting?

From the Owner's Manual:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

I would say, before calling for service turn the machine off then unplug it for a minute then plug back in and try.

Dryer needs to be reset

If the dryer needs to be reset simply because the cycle needs to be changed, stopped or altered, press "Power/Cancel" once to cancel the current cycle. Select the new desired cycle, followed by any modifiers and cycle options. Then press "Start/Pause" to begin the new cycle.

My frigidaire dyer comes on then the pause message appears. These are new appliances.

Hello barbarada180 - It means that the washer has been paused; the cycle has been interrupted. Either the "Pause/Cancel" button or "Start/Pause" button has been pressed. To resume wash - press "Pause/Cancel" or "Start/Pause" once. If this does not prove to be successful please turn the breaker to the unit off for 5 minutes. Then turn the breaker back on to the unit, and retry the cycle setting again.

I hit cancel in the middle of a cycle and now it keeps saying F1

From the maytag website: 

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel twice.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work:
Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
Plug in washer or reconnect power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Can't get washer to start again after pushing pause/cancel button

sounds like central control unit problem, you can check for diagnostic mode operation by setting (door closed) drain/spin, no spin, pressing prewash 4 times in 5 secs pressing prewash again will advance through diagnostic cycle. replacing user interface may also be necessary
