Default Dryer in kenmore washer/dryer stackable wont stop buzzing, and runs with door open
Model Number: 417.91702001   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years

The dryer buzzer that indicates the end of a cycle won't stop buzzing. It just goes on and on. It does this no matter what drying cycle the unit is set to and regardless of what "off" position the timer is in. Additionally, when the dryer is on it continues to run when when the door is open. I check the button in the door and it doesn't seem to be stuck in any way. Please advise. Thank you!

For one thing, the door switch contacts must be stuck together. You can verify this by simply unplugging one connector from the switch and see if the dryer will no longer start. This switch is no longer available from the manufacturer but you may find it if you search on part number 5308001614. To get to the switch, you must remove the transition panel between dryer and washer, remove control panel screws and pull the control panel down. Then you can reach up behind the switch, squeeze the mounting tabs together and push it out the front of the hole. Unplug the dryer before opening it up.

As for the buzzer sounding while the dryer is running, that is a mystery. I don't know what advice to offer for that as I would have to get my hands on the machine myself to troubleshoot that problem. You can easily disconnect it from the timer though. The buzzer is right next to the timer and connects to the timer B and C terminals.

Default Thank for the help Eric!

Just to clarify, the buzzer sounds at the end of the cycle (it just does not stop), but the dryer stops normally. If you move it to a time the buzzer does stop, but the dyer runs (even with the door open). Thank you so much for the help!

Ah, well, that's different. This is caused by a faulty motor switch so the entire motor must be replaced. One other question though to be sure. When you set the timer into a cycle, does the dryer start right away or do you have to use the start switch?

Ah, the plot thickens, in that case, the problem is the start switch, not the motor. The start switch is stuck closed which is why it starts right away and why the buzzer sounds continuously at end of cycle. It has nothing to do with the dryer running with the door open however. So, you need a new start switch and door switch.

I agree with Eric. Symptoms indicate the push to start switch is stuck allowing power to go to motor continuously.

Would like to know if that does not fix the problem. You have to be a detective when it comes to appliances, eliminating possible issues until you find the answer.
