Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The light bulb inside the dryer blew out (burst). I replaced the buld and now the light stays on constantly and when we push the start button we get three beeps but nothing else. Any ideas?
Check your door switch. It sounds like the door switch is not engaging (closing properly). If the switch contacts stay open, the interior light stays on the dryer will beep when you attempt to start it. This is the push button toggle switch on the door frame. This is a common symptom of this problem.
Open the door and push in on the switch, If the switch is working properly, the light will go out. If it doesn't, you will need to make sure the switch is not loose. Next, check the wires leading to the switch to make sure they are not loose, broken or grounded to the case anywhere. If all the wiring checks good, you will need to replace the switch. This is a very simple repair. Let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.
