Check all fuses and circuit breakers , test with a multimeter the door switch, ensure it is working, if this parts are fine, then the problem is with the control timer. In that case you will need to replace it.

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Kenmore dryer doesnt have power there is continuity to the timer and the switch


Is there power at the receptacle? The easy way to check this is to go to your electrical panel, turn off the 30 amp (2 - pole) circuit breaker, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on. If you have any lights, digital displays, etc. that indicate power being on to the dryer - then try going through your routine again for drying your clothes. If this doesn't do it, feel free to contact me again - and I'll help you with the next step. Sometimes the door latch can affect power. Meaning, if the door isn't shut all the way - it won't turn on. Now, if it is shut all the way and you know you have power to the machine, and it still won't work. A faulty door latch switch has been known to be the cause. Good Luck to you, and I hope the simple solution works for you. - Jim

Replaced burned out dryer bulb on Whirlpool GEW9250PW and now drum light won't shut off even with door closed. Dryer will not work but all panel lights function normally - UNTIL you press start. Dryer...


Hello jmylymok,
Welcome to Fizya,

You said, you replaced burned out dryer bulb on Whirlpool GEW9250PW and now drum light won't shut off even with door closed. Dryer will not work but all panel lights function normally - UNTIL you press start. Dryer just beeps and doesn't work. When I tried the troubleshooting solutions, the error 6E comes up. What does this mean?

This sounds like the reason your bulb went out was more than just a bulb normally dying!
There is a short, or in that socked or the switch or it affected the the control panel too!!
This sounds like a hands on diagnoses job!

Let me know how it goes.
Huuum
