It sounds like the thermal cut off fuse has been set off.It will need to be replaced should be 2 blue wires that connect to a little white thing that is it. You can take the back off the dryer and find it there. Also clean out all lint and make sure ventilation system is good. If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

    if you remove the wires and connect them together and wrap them with electrical tape and the dryer runs that is the problem. Don't run it like this though I would replace the fuse promptly. It should be located near the bottom near the exhaust when you open the back panel.
    Thanks again and enjoy,

HI,
If after resetting the controls using the end of cycle button, you are facing the same symptom, there could be loose cable connection, sometimes the cables at the back are eaten by rodents. Do check the cables by removing the back cover.
Second there could be a problem with the MCB,ie. the main circuit board . I would recommend to check cables first and if everthing seems fine there , call up the whirlpool service guy . They can be reached on the following webiste

How-To Unlock The Controls For A Whirlpool Duet washer

I own a 4 yr old whirlpool duet dryer and controls locked light came on and can not get it to go off


Look for the End of Cycle button at the extreme right hand side of the console then press and hold it for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked light turns off. The instruction is actually printed right below the button. The control lock is a safety feature of the dryer to prevent settings manipulation during the drying cycle.

Unplug the dryer for at least 15 minutes to reset the central control unit if the control cannot be unlocked using the End of Cycle button. Let us know if it's still cannot be unlocked even after the machine is unplugged.

Has a household fuse blown or has a circuit breaker tripped?
There may be 2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the dryer. Make sure both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit breakers have not tripped. Replace the fuse(s) or reset the circuit breaker(s). If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Is the correct power supply available? (Electric dryers only)
Electric dryers require 240-volt power supply. Check with a qualified electrician.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Your dryer door may not be fully closed. It may look shut, but may not be latched. Push on the door to engage the latch or latches. Some models have an upper and lower latch. Both latches must be secure for the dryer to run.
Was the Start, Push to Start or Hold to Start button firmly pressed?
Large loads may require the Start, Push to Start, or Hold to Start button to be pressed and held for two to five seconds.
Is the Cycle Control knob set on a Sensor Dry or Timed Dry cycle? (on some models)
The Cycle Control knob must be set in a Automatic Dry or AccudryTM or Timed Dry cycle. The dryer will not start if set on the Wrinkle ShieldTM option.
Is Controls Locked status light on? (on some models)
Press and hold the Cycle Signal button for three seconds. This will turn off the Controls Locked feature.
Did you recently install a power supply cord on the dryer? (Electric dryers only)
The power supply cord may be incorrectly installed. If the power cord is incorrectly installed, the dryer may not start or heat. Review the Installation Instructions to check that the power supply cord is properly installed.

Dryer wont start


Commonproblems...blown house fuse, broken belt ( on some models )...door switch...*thermal fuse open (venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire....timer....motor, in order from mostcommon to least common. * If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the ventingsystem and vent hood first, then it is often a good idea to replace the operatingthermostat at the same time. This is a picture of some modernthermal fuses.
