Could the door switch be bad in my Kenmore HE4 dryer if the inside light stays on when the door is closed and it won't start?

The light staying on inside when the door is closed does indicate a door switch failure. I recommend replacing this component.

You can order a new door switch from the

Sears PartsDirect

website. The part number for the door switch is 8574875.

The procedure for accessing the door switch is shown in the image below. Be sure that you

unplug the dryer

to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

The information on how to change the door switch is in the image below. It also shows how to access the other components of the dryer so ignore the other instructions.

Remember to unplug the power cord before starting so no voltage is present while servicing the door switch.

I hope this information helps you change the switch but if you have any additional questions the submit another question.

I sould suggest an expert repair the problem. Replacing the console can be a do-it-yourself problem but the console is a $300 part. Electronic parts are easially bought but very difficult to return if damaged or just not needed. I would suggest a Sears technician repair this in your home. Let him worry about the diagnosis and about electronic shorts from dragging your feet across the carpet. Here is the link:

Hi Sam,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Without your model number I am only able to give you general information.

The PF indicates a POWER FAILURE. "PF" flashes to indicate that a power failure occurred while the dryer was running. Press START to continue the cycle, or press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear the display. Any electrical interruption to the machine such as a circuit breaker being reset or weather related power outage can cause a PF error code. Try resetting the appliance by disconnecting it from the outlet or switching off the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes, and then restore the power. If the reset doesn't work, I strongly suggest scheduling service.

This typically occurs when there is a loose wire in the terminal block or outlet. The diagnosis of this issue will require the use of an ohm/volt meter and you will have to perform ohm checks and/or live voltage checks. If you have an ohm/volt meter and are confident in your technical abilities, please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Sears Home Services

If you would like specific help with your dryer, please reply to this post with the model number and more details.

Hi Charlotte,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

The dryer may be signaling an error or the console may have a stuck button. The first thing I recommend is checking for an error code. I am including the tech sheet for your dryer in the images below. This information is on the first page. The troubleshooting section begins on page 4. The tech sheet also explains how to check the heater components. Most of these checks will require the use of a multimeter.

Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.



If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here, and if I may be of further assistance, include more details, in a reply to this post.
