Chosen Solution

Try 1 &2 first as they are the most common

Solution 1:

Thermal Fuse

The thermal fuse is a safety device designed to protect the dryer from overheating. The fuse is located on the blower housing or at the dryer’s heat source such as the heating element on electric dryers or at the burner on gas models. The fuse should be closed for continuity meaning it has a continuous electrical path through it when good. If overheated the fuse will have no continuity meaning the electrical path is broken and the fuse has blown. A multimeter can be used to test it for continuity. Be aware that a blown thermal fuse is an indication of a restricted exhaust vent from the dryer to the outside. Always check the dryer venting when replacing a blown thermal fuse

Solution 2:

Start Switch

To determine if the start switch is defective, attempt to start the dryer. If the dryer hums but does not start, the start switch is not at fault. If the dryer does not respond or make any noise, the start switch could be at fault. Use a multimeter to test the start switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Solution 3:

Door Switch

Solution 4:

Drive Motor

Solution 5:

Main Control Board

carpenterkathy05  download the tech sheet from the bottom of this page Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer and try to get into the diagnostics mode as instructed on page 1. It will allow you to narrow down what may have failed and it will allow you to check the door switch as well. Let us know if and what error code you are getting.
