Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
It sounds like you have a simple fix. The most likely problem is that you have a blown thermal fuse.
Remove the lower panel, remove the lint filter from its housing, then remove the housing itself. It's a diamond shaped WHITE component on the duct work behind the lint filter housing. It will Usually have two blue wires on it.
This fuse usually blows due to an exhaust problem. Lint build up, too long, kinked, pinched or otherwise compromising air flow. Check the internal duct and the external duct to be sure it is clear.
Here is the part you need to order.
The part comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy.

SOURCE: dryer will not start
Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has circuit break er tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?

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.
I hope this will solve your issue.
If my solution proves useful please accept it.
