I have a Kenmore HE4 dryer that will not start lights come on but it just beeps 11085862401 Kenmore Elite Residential 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.

I recommend testing the door switch since the number is changing when you close the door. 

These tests allow factory or service
personnel to test and verify all inputs to the
machine control electronics. One may want
to do a quick and overall checkup of the
dryer with these tests before going to
specific troubleshooting tests.
1. Be sure the dryer is in Standby Mode
(plugged in and all indicators off).
2. Press the following button sequence:
- all within 5 seconds.
3. All indicators on the console are
illuminated with “88” showing in the
(two-digit) display, if this test mode
has been entered successfully.

 Diagnostic: Door Switch
Opening the door should cause a beep tone
and a number and letter to be indicated in
the two-digit display. Closing the door firmly
should cause a beep tone and the display to
go blank or indicate “88”.

TEST #6 Door Switch Test
Go into the Diagnostic Test Mode. See
page 1. Functionality is verified with a beep
each time the door is closed and opened,
and a number and letter appears in the
display (i.e., “0E”, “0G”, “1E”, or “2G” etc.).
? If any of the above conditions are not
met, or if one of the dryer model
codes listed above is displayed when
the door is closed, check that the
wires between the door switch and
machine control electronics are
connected. See figure 12 for switch
location and see Accessing the
Machine Control Electronics, page 10.
? If the connections are OK, replace the
wire and door switch assembly and
? If wire and door assembly have been
replaced and dryer still does not start,
then replace the machine control

Why won't my dyrer run? 11085862401 Kenmore Elite Residential dryer


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model 11085862401; it could be the front console is not functioning properly. The front panel has the buttons built into it. There is a switch by the motor. The switch is activated when the belt brakes. The belt could have broken which then activated the switch.

Thank you for choosing Sears. We appreciate your business. Have a great day.
