Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I own a Kenmore elite HE4 dryer. This morning I wanted to use the air dry function and air dry a pair of shorts. Not only was I not able to dry the shorts, but the heat did not come on again. It is almost like the dryer is stuck on air dry mode. I have unplugged the machine to try and reset. Is it my element?

Heating coils are most likely cause for no heat.

My Kenmore elite HE4 quiet pak 9 electric dryer is working, but it emits a constant series of 3 beeps, and sometimes shuts off before the cycle is complete. I have to unplug it to stop the beeping....


You are getting moisture in the control panel buttons. After a while the panel will not function at all. The light in the dryer tub will still come on when the door is open. When you unplug your machine and it sets for awhile you are allowing the moisture to dry and the machine can reset. Some people use a hair dryer to dry out the control panel for a temporary fix. Eventually, you will have to get it replaced once it stops resetting for you.

Yes i have a Kenmore Elite Smartheat quitepak 9 HE4 and its not drying at all. It takes 180min on hight to dry towels


If your dryer is STILL heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, double check your installation, first, to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you have any questions, please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The dryer isn't drying properly. It gets hot its not drying. Its a Kenmore Elite. Also the coil has been cleaned and its not catching lint.


Make sure the drum is turning and the blower is functioning. Vacuum out all air passages including the hose going to the outside vent. Remove the lint trap, and wash it in hot water and detergent to clean away fabric softener deposits from the screen. If the motor is not running, find out why.

Cloths not drying all the way


if you have heat and the clothes take to long to dry you need to clean out the dryer the lint duct and blow out the vent line,also go outside and make sure there isn't a cage or something acting like a lint catch stopping air from blowing out where the flapper is

Kenmore elite HE 4 IS NOT DRYING AND GIVING BURING SMELL


ensure the lint screen is clean, check your discharge vent hose for blockage or kinks. You may need to move the dryer out from the wall to thoroughly inspect the vent hose. while the vent hose is removed from the dryer, start the dryer momentarily to ensure the is sufficient air flow exiting the unit.

Control locked


Mine has an "auto dry" button. It says underneath, "Press & hold 3 seconds..." to unlock control. I did it, it worked.
