Question about Dryers
Our new Whirlpool Duet Steam Dryer beeps 3 times but does not start when we press the start button. This is an electric dryer - not one operating on natural gas. Home Depot tested the two bullet-type 30-amp fuses and said that they are good. Is it possible that one of these fuses is not good and when this is true all the lights on the panel still work? Also, is there a 15-amp time-delay fuse which we need for this dryer? I cannot locate any 15-amp circuit with a time-delay fuse in it assigned to the dryer on my electrical panel.
Please reply as soon as possible. My wife and I spent close to $4,500 for our new Whirlpool Steam Duet washer, dryer, 15.5 inch pedestals, 5-year extended warranty & all taxes in Canada and my wife is freaking out because our new dryer is not working.
Brand new unit - same problem. After an hour of investigating, I found the issue.
You don't actually have to SLAM the door. If you look closely, there are 3 separate pins that must latch. One is a simple push-button style which latches no problem.
The others are little prongs at the top and bottom of door. The bottom prong latches cleanly, but the top one will not latch because the door is a bit too flexible.
Close the door normally, then firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab, then you press and hold the start button. The dryer starts normally.

Hi troy crawford,
Well if it beeps for 3
times and then shut off when you press start it means that the dryer thinks
that dryer door is open. You will have to replace your door switch to fix the
problem. or you can also try closing the door normally, then
firmly press on the top edge of the door. You will hear the final latch grab,
then you press and hold the start button. many time it will works...
