Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Inconsistent Power Dryer did not operate and control panel lights did not glow. The bulb inside the dryer drum did light. We unplugged for five minutes and then plugged back in and it is now working. Seems like something is going out. There are random beeps as dryer is shifting from "high" to "low" to "off" end of cycle signal. Any suggestions?

i took the top off checked all the wiring, cleaned the back vents, and the vent tube going outside. I also cleaned the lint screen and gaurd really good, put it all back together. I also unplugged the dryer waited a few minutes and plugged back in. The dryer had a code flashing saying it lost power, I reset the dryer and it has been working great now. Evedently it must be sensitive.

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you
go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

I had the same problem and eventually none of the cycle buttons light up or the cycle time display. So it would not run at all. After taking it apart once and fiddling with the cycle push buttons, it worked for one load then would not work again. I could see 3 of the led faintly illuminated and unplugging and plugging back in the power changed nothing. Then I removed the plastic ring of cycle buttons that is between the panel circuit board and the outer plastic. (There a several layers to get to the ring.) Now I use a long allen wrench to push on the switch on the circuit board. I left the middle start button in place. That does not seem to cause a problem. Several loads now and still working. So it looks like the ring on plastic buttons don't release from the circuit board buttons causing a problem.

The drier is not getting hot


If it's electric and you do not have the knowledge to be working with 220 vac power I would suggest you call a repair person to come and look at it. It can be a tripped breaker, check you breaker box and shut off the drier breaker and than turn it back on making sure both sides lock on. Other than that, you can have a bad heater element or a bad timer. The most common would be a bad heating element. The element is normally found either behind the drum or down below the drum area and can be accessed by removing the lower front panel. Gain access to the element or open the dryer door and start the dryer by holding down the door switch and push the start button. If it is behind the drum you should see it glowing by looking inside the drum as it's running. The same is true for the element that is underneath the drum...remove the panel and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the element box. If you do not see a glow, unplug the dryer and check the element for a burned connection or break in the element wire. If you have a gas dryer, check that the supply is on, check that the dryer is plugged in and if so equipped check that the pilot light is lit. If the dryer has electronic ignition, you should hear a clicking noise when you first start it up. No noise, no ignition! If the pilot light is out follow your instruction book and relight the pilot or call your gas company for help!

Light inside works no power to panel


I didn't READ any fault in the machine?! It is "just" the Light remains on? Typically, when the dryer ends it's cycle as a safety feature the light will remain in the ON position for a brief period of time. The reason you get no working functions is because the safety feature is disallowing any unauthorized entry in the drum (Kids). The feature usually can be shut off by reading the owners manual. It can not be reset by unplugging the machine! That is the default setting

Dryer won't heat up and light bulb turns on then off when door is opened.


Does the drum spin when you shut the door and start the dryer if so it wouldn't be a bad door switch. 1st. thing I would check would be the igniter with front kick panel off dryer it's located at the bottom right hand outer side of drum in the burner duct. here's how you check it with door shut start dryer and look for a orange glow from the igniter if no glow it's a bad igniter if it's not the igniter it could be a thermostat or a flame switch check these things if need more help I'll be glad to help.

Door is closed and the light stays on. after a while non of the buttons will work any suggestions.


I have the same problem but my interior drum light stays on whether door is open or closed; in either case the control panel becomes in-operable after about five minutes. I unplug the machine for 5 to 20 minutes then plug it back in and it is powered "on" the moment I plug it in (i don't even have to push the power button). Then the light remains on but i am able to operate the control panel so i can do a load of clothes. Then if the machine sits idle for no more than five minutes, the control panel becomes in-operable again and the interior drum light stays on.

Any one have a clue???

Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer, Model # 110.8586400, Control Panel Lights inoperative, But Drum Light works fine. I am going to try this procedure, Will let you know if it works. Jay/ Jacksonville Florida...


I followed that procedure, Taking the Electronic Control Unit out of the dryer, Blow Drying the printed circuit Board (PCB) Board out and reseating P3 and P4, Worked fine.. No moisture was found in the Drum area. I forgot to tag the TECH SHEET FOR this particular dryer . But punch in Tech sheet , Part # 8546206 into google, this gives Schematic and valuable Troubleshooting steps, The only thing i could not find was the pin to pin test on chekcing the individual switches on the main functions, Suppose to be 14 pins I only found 13. But in all drying the PCB board and reseating the plugs worked for me. Again the symptons were no Light indication on ANY button depressed but the drum light was on. Great Site, Not a first time user

Replaced burned out dryer bulb on Whirlpool GEW9250PW and now drum light won't shut off even with door closed. Dryer will not work but all panel lights function normally - UNTIL you press start. Dryer...


Hello jmylymok,
Welcome to Fizya,

You said, you replaced burned out dryer bulb on Whirlpool GEW9250PW and now drum light won't shut off even with door closed. Dryer will not work but all panel lights function normally - UNTIL you press start. Dryer just beeps and doesn't work. When I tried the troubleshooting solutions, the error 6E comes up. What does this mean?

This sounds like the reason your bulb went out was more than just a bulb normally dying!
There is a short, or in that socked or the switch or it affected the the control panel too!!
This sounds like a hands on diagnoses job!

Let me know how it goes.
