    Cool 110.70097990 Kenmore Dryer acting possessed

    Model Number: 110.70097990
    Brand: Sears Kenmore
    Age: More than 10 years

    Does anyone have any idea why sometimes the dryer starts, runs fine then out of the blue....load it up nothing happens. Unplug it for awhile and it will start but if i add more time it will do the 3 intermittent beeps i press stop and clear it the go to try again and nothing happens total blank board and i have to unplug it again for awhile. Then on another day you start it and it will run and the whole time 3 intermittent beeps the whole cycle. I already replaced the control board. The heat comes on and buttons all work ok when it isn't being stubborn. But then the possession happens and it gets wonky. Lint is cleared and i take the bottom apart regularly to make sure it is clean. Exhaust is brand new. Any idea or should i get Holy Water and a priest? Thanks for any info! I live in BFE taking care of my mother so there is Nothing here. The closest is a sears repair and hour and a half away

    Hi,

    I've seen this happen many times in the last 20 years when I worked as a tech for Montgomery Ward and Sears.

    You'll need a new control panel assembly, yours has a short in it causing this problem.

    Here's the control panel for this model you can order:
    WP8282546 Panel-Control
