.Whirlpool electric dryer will not work.

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Here is the door switch.

Wont start... the power comes on but when you push the start button it just beeps like the door is open. can you send me a diagram of the door switch and how to change it

IN order to change the door switch, you must remove the outer door spring that attaches the gasket to the front panel. Of course, disconnect the plug first. There are 2 screws that attach the switch to the front panel, if you remove them, it releases the switch and to access the switch, reach inside between the front panel and remove the 3 quick disconnects and the door switch is then removeable... Use caution when reinstalling the door seal and spring in order to avoid leaks. Good luck!!

Can I change the side the door opens?

Unfortunately you cannot reverse the doors on this model. There have only been two front load washers that I know of that had reversible doors, the maytag neptune and amana front loaders. Your matching dryer for this model, I believe has a reversible door, but you'll have to purchase a kit to do it. IF needed maybe you can switch the dryer and washer locations to make them more accessible?
Sorry, and good luck to you!

What does F5 mean?


On Whirlpool ovens F5 indicates a failure in the door switch or door latch switch, this is typically right up front in the center just above the door. On some models (not many) the switch is in the back and there is a rod connecting to the front.

The door on my whirlpool duet washer won't lock

Sounds like door switch is bad. Look at inside front panel of door, get model number, search on internet for "error codes" with that model number. It should show "DL" door lock defective, not secured, failure. One sure way (in most cases) is to push in on door and hold it firmly closed,it is works,bad door switch. To replace, order new switch, take the whole front panel (front assembly including door) off, switch on back side of panel. DO NOT TAKE DOOR HINGE LOOSE. Replace switch. By the way, before taking apart, UNPLUG FROM WALL.
