Okay so I'm having similar problems with mine. No error code, beeps three times fast when I press start after choosing my dry cycle. The light bulb went out so I tried another bulb and it didn't work… what do I do?

@bobbyv_26 ,Bob, the door may not be fully shut or thermal fuse faulty. Found good info. for dryer just beeps and no error code, link below. Both point to a bad thermal fuse. 3rd link shows testing and replacement of thermal fuse. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

@bobbyv_26 unplug the unit from the outlet and let it sit for awhile. Then try again. Keeping it unplugged should reset it. After that you want to try to run the diagnostics code as outlined in here HE3 Techsheet. Let us know what you find so we can assist you further.

Kenmore HE4 Elite Dryer - Would not turn on. The lights on the controls worked. When I tried to start it beeped three times rapidly. but did nothing. I tried to search the forums for answer everyone was saying its the thermal fuse. I tested the thermal fuse and all the fuses it wasent the answer. So it was either the door switch or control board… NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!..

Solution: The door switch was not ‘clicking’, it would push in and go out but no click. I pushed the length of the switch from side to side (without removing the switch) …wiggle it more like and pushed again… Click! pushed it a few more times to make sure.. Still clicking. Reassembled the dryer and works fine. I assume there’s a track assembly inside the switch and when its off the rails it wont click over.. When I pushed on it I inadvertently put it back on track.

Cost to fix : $ 0.00

Total Research/Diagnose/ disassembly and reassembly time : 1hr 45min. (for me)

Total repair time : Instant / Accidental

Typical Issues from cheapest to most expensive DIY Costs (Coincidentally these are ranked most to least common culprits as well.)

#1 Thermal Fuse ($8 )

#2 Door Switch ($20)

#3 Control Board ($240 ish)

Same. Thx. Saved me hours and a potential service call. I was going down the path of replacing the thermal fuse - saw this, fiddled with the door switch and problem solved.

Thank you soooo much! I am on vacation in Mexico in a condo with this dryer and had exactly the same problem. But thanks to you, what could have been a night marred by wet clothes hanging all over the place is now a night spent sipping margaritas and listening to the lovely whir of a working dryer.

I had the same problem but found we were pressing the buttons too hard, just a light press was required to get the dryer to start.
