    Thank you, I tried, however my wife says the light hasn't worked in a while, guess it burned since I used to find the door left open many times. I did notice that the switch didn't make a click sound when I press it, should it do it? Guess I have to first replace the light bulb and pick it up from there.

    My dryer is beeping while drying. It's starts up after around 10-15 minutes of drying. Everything seems to be working fine except the beeping. Please help us?

    it beeps several times and then the time flashes.
    sometimes the light in the dryer is on and sometimes it is not. I have already unplugged and plugged it back it in, nothing.

Sounds like the door switch might be an issue,, does teh tub light go on /off as you open the door??? if not try manually pushing the switch in a few times.

    shhhh. heres a little trick, dont know why it happens, but ive never had a faulty switch,. turn off the power supply, the switch itself pops out fron the front of the unit, witha small screw driver pry from the side if the switch as if you WERE gonna change it, as you twist and torque the switch out it will generally "pop" out and start tot operate again ( youll here it "clicking" as you depress it) without even pulling it completely from holder or replacing. at least thats how its always worked for my, worth a shot

    THANK YOU! I just happen to find your "little trick" solution as I have been looking for a solution to fix my dryer. I popped out the switch, twisted and jimmied it until I heard a "pop" and the dryer started to work again!! My dryer was down for 5 days and your fix took less than 2 mintues! THANKS YOU!!

    That did the trick Ron. Thank you! We were getting ready to pull the entire dryer out to try to unplug it! Thank God I found your comment via Google search. The gray pop out button in the lower right hand corner when you open the door was working as it was supposed to, but I pushed it in and out a few times and wiggled it around just in case. Closed the door and low and behold the dryer came back on. Praise Jesus, because I have about 8 loads of laundry to do today.

Duet Dryer will not start, Press control on, Start, then it beeps

try tripping your circet breakers dont assume that just because it lights up both lines are working you can have a partial tripped breaker and just be getting 110 to the drier its easy enough to just go ahead and reset the breakere if that dont work get back to me
