We have a 5 year old Kenmore Elite electric clothes dryer. It has worked flawlessly until last night. When I push the start button it runs fine, until I let go of the button. As soon as I let go of the button the dryer stops. I unplugged and plugged back in the power and it worked fine until the next load. This time unplugging and plugging back in did not help. Pushing the button several times finally got it to work. The dryer worked fine the day before and was not hot the first time it wouldn't start. Any idea what I'm looking at??
I read an older article online about these dryers having a bad computer board costing over $100. Anyone else hear of this? This discussion also had some peoiple saying there was a Sears Service flash that would cover out of warranty work (and some people got it) others claimed Sears denied any such service flash. Is there a way to find Sears service flashes online? Anyone know the best way to approach Sears on this (in trying to get them to cover it)?
