1 Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing. 2 Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.
3 Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly. 4 Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable. 5 Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues. 6 Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position. 7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet. 8 inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp
The sensor is dirty..remove the lint trap and clean the orifice with a
Swiffer duster. Dryer sheets can clog the lint trap use a tooth brush
and detergent to clean the lint trap. Alternately see if it presents the
same issue operating it without the lint trap. If you have an air
compressor blow out the slot too. Make sure the main exit hose is
cleared also *vent duct*. Tip the unit and blow the air in too.
Or a melting type fuse mounts on the blower housing and is tied into the
same circuit as the door switch. When it melts it shuts down everything
and this keeps the lint from catching fire.
Also check the belts.
You can turn off the beeping if you would like. Instructions are in the
manual. By Pressing the buzzer button it has Loud medium low and off
Remove the rear vent and try the unit...
I'm thinking that your sensor is probably the issue here.
According to the manual, if the Start/Pause button light is blinking, it means the Start/Pause button was not pressed. Press the Start/Pause button. If this fails to work, you may have a faulty control panel, preventing the Start/Pause button from sending the signal to start the cycle. Try unplugging the washer for 5 seconds, plug it back in and try again. Let me know if you come up with any Error Codes and I will further assist you.
The fan that pulls the hot air through the dryer and pushes the exhaust out through the vent hose is plugged with lint. You will want to remove the cover on the fan and manually clean the fan out. I had the same problem with my dryer, I was astounded by the amount of lint that was trapped in the fan.
Also look inside the cloths drum on the back wall and make certain the hole in that wall are not clogged with lint also. Use a flash light and make sure the hole are perfectly clean.
Good luck, clean it all out and let me know.
Another post reported replacing the power cord. I am trying to determine if this is a factory defect. Check the power at the power cord connections inside the dryer. You could have lost power on one leg and the other 120 volt leg is letting the light work. Let me know what the model and serial number is. InMrFixIt
