I have a gas kenmore elite he3 dryer. The dryer either

Customer Question
I have a gas...

I have a gas kenmore elite he3 dryer. The dryer either starts and runs fine for a minute or so and stops or just beeps when the start button is pushed. It seems to heat fine. It also doesn't seem to matter if it's in auto or manual or the heat cycle.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

13 years or so. 110.94821300

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It's been a good dryer

Often that is a bad door switch on the unit open the door and press the switch all the way in with your finger and then press start if it still does a triple beep replace the door switch.

It still beeps once and won't start. Can I test the switch?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 9 months ago

You can test the door switch to the unit. Get to the two wires to it and see if there is continuity across the switch. Also make sure the belt is not broken on the unit.

The door switch is operating correctly.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 9 months ago

OK does the unit start now at all?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No it doesn't, also the check lint screen flashes a lot. I have cleaned everything pretty good. It was starting for a minute or so before but now it just beeps and goes click.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 9 months ago

OK then if the belt is good you need to get to the main board and remove it and check the backside of the board, you likely have a solder joint burned out. The only other thing that will cause that issue is a bad thermal fuse on the blower housing. Check those two things.
