Try this.. across the top rear of the dryer there is 3 gold screws (1/4" I believe) remove them and pull the top panel back about 6" inches then get a hair-dryer.. when standing back in the front of the machine there is now a black strip of sheetmetal you can now see that is right behind the control panel your pressing all the time.. there is a small gap about 1/2" between the black metal strip and the control panel that allows you to see a few green PC boards from the back side.. put the hair-dryer on high and work it back and forth in that slot pointing it at these boards... this will dry out the moisture back there on the boards and in the buttons themselves.. Give it a few minutes.. the beeping sounds like your timer indicator buzzer button is stuck ON so be sure to dry off the right area where those buttons are also.. once the beeping stops it should work.. Mine has done this 3 times and the hair-dryer has fixed it every time.. What's going on is because the buttons have been pressed so many times they have almost collapsed together and only a little moisture allows them to stick ON.. once the timer button does this you cant start ANY mode until it is cleared.. kinda like holding the channel button down on your remote to the TV and not being able to do anything else until you get it to stop...

We are new to the Kenmore Elite HE3 8674 dryer and it won't run

Our daugther in law came over, and she forcefully shut the door, and the dryer started working. We are going to have the Sears people to come out and make certain that this dryer is not damaged.

Dryer turns on, but does not run

Try to turn the drum inside with no clothes in it, does it turn freely both ways?

Then as someone is holding the start button, hold the door switch button, then try to turn the drum counter-clock wise, and see if it will start turning on its own.

If it does start turning, then the motor is more than likely the problem.

If it dosen't then the timer is more than likely the problem.
