Question about Kenmore HE5 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Why won't it start?

MY DRYER DOOR WAS COMING OPENED DURING A DRYING CYCLE, HOWEVER WENT TO BED AND GOT UP AND DRYER WILL NOT WORK. THE DRUM LIGHT WORKS AND IT HAS 220 POWER BUT IT WILL NOT POWER UP. IT HAS NO ERROR SHOWING.. THE SEARS TECH CAME BY AND STATED THAT THE INNER FACE WAS BAD, SO I RECEIVED THE PARTS AND PUT THEM ON AND HAD ANOTHER TECH COME HER THAT WAS NOT FROM SEARS BUT LICENSED AND HE SAYS EVERYTHING IS ON CORRECTLY AND DRYER SHOULD WORK.. SINCE THE THERMAL FUSE IS GOOD.. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Check your heating element to see if it is shorted to ground.
The element has 110V to it all the time, so if the element shorts to ground it will heat all the time. This is a fairly common failure.

If the element is ok, you may have a stuck centrifigul switch inside the motor, this is very rare but does happen sometimes.

Post back to let me know what you find or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

The Thermal fuse is most likely the problem.

SOURCE: Kemore Elite Oasis Dryer Error Code "AF?"

Problem solved! We read on here about someone else addressing the AF code by removing the back panel and fixing the pully that had come off. Belt was fine, with pully back in place dryer now works perfectly again. Thank you for saving us so much time and money!

These are awesome solutions, L1 or the black hot wire supplies the lights and one leg of the heater while L2 the red power wire completes the circuit for the heater and powers the board. A great test is this, if the light is on and the load doesnt go, bad load. In this case trace the L2 line and find where the power stops, the first is the interface and the same goes for Frigidaire. I would also get the part number from Sears, tell them you will wait for money and then look for other local sources, it is worth the wait to save 80 dollars for a back order.

Hello dram65,
Check the door interlock switch, if that's malfunctioning or not sensing the door is closed.. it will disable the drying function,
Regards,
Rick

The dryer was drying, and suddenly stopped and control panel says call technician. Then says door open, won`t start after unplugging to reset it. The inside light stopped working at that time.


It may have overheated. Wait a couple of hours and try again. If it still doesn't work you will need an engineer to diagnose the problem. As it went out during a cycle it could be high limit thermostat or high limit cut out. Both are available on eBay and Amazon. Those parts fail if the dryer gets too hot caused by bad airflow, clogged filters, exhaust pipe or stuck vent slats outside.

Check to see if you can spin the drum fairly easy. Also, try to leave the door open, hold the door switch in, and then start the dryer and give the drum a spin to see if it starts.

High efficency dryer won't spin-Frigidaire


Try this. Set the timer. Open the door, press and hold the light switch. Rotate the drum by hand then while still holding the light switch turn on the dryer. If it starts then clos the door while removing your finger quickly. If this problem persists it could be the starter on your motor.
