Question and Answers


Dryer starts and quits 15 seconds after starting and blinks out codes. 417.94152500


what does it mean when dryer stops with 4 blinking lights next to the drying, cool down and lint 41794152500 Kenmore Dryer


Thank you for choosing and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not working properly.

n. The four indicator lights of 

Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of  the code and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. 

Since your unit blinks 4 times the only error code I see is the E4A. The drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle. 

Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6 seconds to exit test modes. 
Position cycle selector to NORMAL, temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for anything that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in 
closet with solid door, or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic control.

Dryer Does Not Shut Off 41794152500 Kenmore Dryer


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the Kenmore dryer not working properly. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

Based upon the symptoms notated, I suspect the issue is coming from a shorted relay(s) on the electronic control board. That would be the most likely suspect for the various issues you are having with the unit. By opening the door and the unit shutting off, that indicates the door switch is working. The unit not shutting off automatically, the light not working, and the heat not working are all controlled by the board. If you've had a power outage or surge lately, that could explain why the board has shorted.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-469-4663, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

I hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
