On the lower right hand side of the control panel, hold the bottom button in for 3-5 seconds until the light goes out.

My whirlpool dryer just beeps when you try to start it. The panel is lit up the door is shut, push start and it just beeps...any idea what the problem is


To unlock the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold the End Of Cycle Signal button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.

NOTE: When the dryer is running and Control Locked light is on, the dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If holding doesn't unlock the feature, it is likely a faulty interface. I am having the same problem with my Whirlpool dryer and it is the interface, but it seems that a lot of people are able to correct the issue just by pressing the End of Cycle button for 3 minutes.

Here is a link to parts, numbers, and prices from Sears:

How do you convert back from propane to natural gas, I already have the orifice but don't know how to put it on?


If you have the rear control dryer you posted under:
1. Unplug power to dryer.
2. remove two phillips head screws behind door, just in front of lint filter.
3. Use putty knife to push in dryer top release clips at seam with dryer front, about a inch in from each side.
4. Swing top up and remove two phillips screws holding front onto frame at very top of front panel.
5. pull front panel forward a bit and remove plug to drum light and door switch.
6. lift front panel off dryer.
7. Turn off gas shut off and remove burner / valve assembly.
8. Replace orifice and change out brass pressure regulator screw.
9. reassemble and test.

Can't get back panel off gas LG.


The back panel does not come off. If you have a rear control model as pictured in your post: Open the door and remove the two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock position just in front of the lint tilter. Next, use a putty knife to push in on the clips holding the top panel down. They are located in the seam where the front panel meets the top panel, near the left and right edges. Swing the top panel up to gain acess to the two phillip head screws holding the front panel on at the very top of the front panel. Disconect the the door switch, drum light, and then the sensor plug near the lint filter. This allows you to fully remove the front panel. The thermal reset is located on the left side of the burner housing, near the front. It is about the size of a dime, with two wires to it, and a quarter inch long pin in the center of it. Push the pin in firmly. (it will only move a little bit) Reassemble dryer. CLEAN OUT VENT AND CORRECT IMPROPER VENTING to prevent a repeat of the condition.

Whirpool GGw9250Pw3 no power on Control Panel Inside light works


In my case, the problem was a dead main board. The board cost $190 and the overall repair cost $335. I will never buy another Whirlpool due to this experience.

Dryer clicks when start button pushed but does not start.


A quarter was lodged on the thermal fuse , located below the lint screen on the blower exhaust housing, on our dryer. Remove the front lower panel , 2 screw, and you'll see 2 fuses. I suspect that our control board is burnt.

Lihts on conrol panel will not shut off once cancel/pause button is pushed


Both sound like the user interface. Impossible to troubleshoot except by replacing the (expensive) part to see if condition improves.
