Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer

I bought my washer and dryer December 9, 2006, in April 2008, 4 months out of warranty, the dry starts flashing AF code and will not work, cleaned out vents and still would not work, repairman has to drive 60 miles and only comes to town one day a week so it was two weeks before got it working. Repairman worked a long time pushing buttons, that's all, finally go it working and told me the glue had stuck some of the buttons and that was why it would not work. Did not believe him but it worked 3 more months after paying 164.00 for service, now stopped again and can not get repairman for three weeks, said it would be Aug 20 before he could come work on dryer again. I do not want to be without dryer for a month and it's not even two years old. I need to know who to contact to get something done. They were not cheap units and I understand they are having a problem but bet they have figured it out by now and probably need to replace circuit board but will try to charge me 300.00 to 500.00 dollars, I am thinking class action suit!!!!!

If anyone had suggestions would love to have them to help repairman if he ever gets here.

    Model number is 110.67062600



    I did purchase the warranty plan for 200.00 and repairman is suppose to be here Wed 13th again so maybe it will get fixed, I think the last repairman just reset it and it lasted 3 months. He did not replace one thing on the dryer.

Why won't it start?


YOU MAY WANT TO TEST YOUR DOOR SWITCH WITH AMULTI METER


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:
Check your venting and lint basket.Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity it should show OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective or has a short if its grounding out? Which in turns causes blown fuses or thermostats or
overheating.

The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with avolt-ohm-multimeter (VOM)set to the RX1 scale at 20K ohms. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12. (1200) ohms. If the reading is higher ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.


Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

OR you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run, the heater should not heat in order not to create a fire but if the motor is not running, and the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum this is why in some cases the dryer will operate at lower cycles like gentle or low heat but not at higher settings?)

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually)Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Kenmore Elite Oasis Electric Dryer - no power (PF code)


Press and hold the "Start" button to restart the dryer cycle if the "PF" (power failure) error code appears. This code often appears when a cycle is interrupted before it completes. You may also check the breaker or household fuse, and ensure the machine has not come unplugged.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
