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)
