Kenmore Dryer-when press start it beeps three times but won't start.
My Kenmore HE Elite Dryer-Model 11084832201 when I press start it beeps three times but does not start. Power is fine and settings work. I think I saw a similar response that said it was the starter button. If I could get detailed instructions on what parts need to be ordered and instructions on how to repair that would be great. The interior light does not work which I don't really care about but I did not know if it might be related to the problem. In addition, our handle broke awhile back so I would like to replace if I could get instructions/product number. Is it difficult to reverse the opening/hinge side? If possible I would also like to change it so the hinge is on the left and it opens on the right. Thanks for any help!

I see someone asked a similar question. When an appliance doesn't work properly or gives out it can be very disappointing because you don't really know what is wrong with it or you might even have to buy a whole different appliance. A suggestion I have for you while you are waiting on your response from an expert. I found this great link on why your dryer "Beeps" I have attached the link below if you are interested in viewing while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps, good luck

Thank you for your question.
I see that Dezeray S has given you a link to an answered question. When the dryer beeps three times, it is usually a faulty door switch. The beeps are telling you the door is not closed. A test you can do is to unplug the dryer and access the door switch. Please use the tear down instructions provided in the link. Then place an insulated jumper wire between the white and blue wires. Make sure the wires are not touching any metal and carefully check the dryer operation. If the dryer works, you need to replace the door switch.
I have added the instructions for reversing the door swing below in an image. These instructions will also help, when replacing the door handle.
If you need further assistance, please reply with more details below.
