Thank You for choosing I understand how important it is to have a properly working dryer. A 3E error code indicates a problem with your motor. If you have a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable working around live electricity, below are instructions on testing the motor.
PLEASE NOTE: Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. Testing voltage output requires working with electrical current. Do not attempt these measurements without the proper tools and safeguards.

1. Unplug the dryer power cord from the electrical outlet.

2. Open the cover for the lint screen on the top of the appliance. Slide out the screen and remove the screws underneath with a screwdriver. If the screen on your model is built into the door portal, skip this step.

3. Use a flat-head screwdriver to raise the top corners of the appliance between the top and the front.

4. Grab the clip in each corner under the top, at the front, with pliers. Squeeze the clips to remove them. This releases the top from the front panel.

5. Extract the screws on the sides of the front panel and the bottom panel immediately below it.

6. Pull off the front panel. Unplug the door switch from the wires on the back of the panel. Push down on the bottom panel, and tilt upward from the bottom edge to remove this part. Now you can see the dryer motor on the right, at the bottom.

7. Pull the two wires off the motor terminals one at a time, making a note of where each wire connects. Each wire has a Y-shaped clip on the end that pulls off the motor.

8. Hold the two test rods on the multimeter to the motor terminals. Set the meter to "X1," which is the test for continuity. If the motor does not produce a reading or the meter display numbers flash endlessly, the dryer motor is burned out and must be replaced.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services
