The Kenmore 417.81102003 dryer control lock feature should be toggled on and off if you press and hold the Add Steam button for 5+ seconds. The Add Steam is the second button from the left in the top row of buttons. When the lock is enabled, the LCD screen should show LOC when you attempt to wake the dryer. There is nothing in the manual about a double-beep when the control lock is enabled. Dryers from this manufacturer, Frigidaire, can beep multiple times if you press the buttons too hard.

This is shown on page 10 of the manual which is available from Sears Parts Direct: . (Note: the final 3 can be ignored. That indicates the cabinet color.) The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

If it is a mechanical timer, replace the timer. The switches in some of these are nothing more than copper traces on a piece of circuit board with a copper wiper that moves over them. The friction eventually wears out these copper traces. This would be one explanation for the heat to work on one setting but not another. If it is a digital electronic timer, I would replace the control board. Good luck.

Some models have a resistor located near timer in console that would cause that. If not, then probably the timer.
