Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore/frigidaire model 41794082500

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

We have not ever heard of what you're describing with the model. It would help to have some additional details. What cycle are you using; time or automatic? Does it heat and dry properly? Does it appear to be heating after the display begins going in circles or does it quit heating. How long does it display it going in circles? What other LED's are lit up when this begins? Is the "Cool Down" LED lit? Also, please verify the model number on the dryer too and reply in the thread with the addition information.

If you could put the video on YouTube and then give us the address we could view the video.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Mark: You didn't state if the dryer is still in a heating mode when the displays begins spinning nor did you state if any other LED lights are on at that time. The dryer is likely in a cool down period when the LED display begins to make circles. Any additional details would be helpful. If the dryer is working and drying properly then I would not be too concerned.

Mark: It's a mystery and no one has heard of seen this symptom. If the dryer is operating normally otherwise; I would have to assume it’s a control board issue and at this time I would just continue using it until you have to replace the control board because of a failure. We will still try to find out for sure why this happening but in the mean time If I was you; I would continue to use the dryer the way it is until you have to replace the control board and then I recommend having a service technician remove and replace it in case there are other issues.

Mark; Two more questions. Has the control board been replaced? if so; did it start this after the control board was replaced?

A:

Mark: Okay, I did not know the control was replaced and that it started this after it was replaced. Well; that may explain it. The original control board part number has been substituted and it's likely a faulty substitute. I have another group in contact with the manufacturer to let them know what your substitute control board is doing along with the video. It will be awhile before we get any feed back from the source but I will be in touch with you when we hear back from the source.

A:

Mark: I have the explanation from engineering on the "race" track displaying in the display window. The display used to show "AD" for automtic dry but will now show the "race" track instead of "AD" like it did before. This is normal operation for the auto dry. There was a request from quality some years back to remove alpha characters from the digit display because they were resulting in service calls when "Ad" was displayed. The solution was to have the chasing lights/race track for Affinity / Next Level models. The lights start at either 10 or 12 minutes into the cycle, and continue until cool down is reached, at which time the numeric display returns. Time dry cycles should show the time for the entire duration of the cycle. The cycle shown in the video was an auto dry cycle (I couldn't read the cycle, but a "dryness" LED was on, indicating autodry).

Q:

kenmore dryer model 41794082500 e5 error?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The E5 error is a heating fault. The control board is not seeing a resistance change in the thermistor. This could be caused by faulty control, thermistor, broken burner ignitor, faulty gas solenoid coils, faulty flame sensor, a loose or burnt wiring connection.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
