Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

We have a whirlpool duet gas front loader dryer and one morning the front panel says control lock?? What's solution for that??


The Control Lock is a child lock option. This prevents the dryer being started or the cycle being changed when it shouldn't. To toggle this off, you need to press and hold the Control Lock button on the WGD9550WL for 3 or more seconds. Other dryers use pressing and holding Cancel or two separate buttons for the feature. The appropriate button or set of buttons will usually have a Hold for 3 seconds label below or on the key in a small font.

The manual will also have the information on toggling the control lock on and off. Most Whirlpool manuals are available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView . Put your model number in the search box and press the right arrow. For dryers the model number is inside the door on the rim of the dryer. If you add a comment with your Whirlpool model number, I will be glad to check if there a different Control Lock option for that Duet model.

I hope this helps.

My whirlpool dryer start when you press the start button - but as soon as you stop pussing the start button the machine stop and does not continue on it self.


Hi,

This problem is most commonly due to the motor. The motor has an internal switch called a centrifugal switch that senses when the motor is up to speed.

The second cause could be the start relay (this is present on some but not all models), this is part of the start button you push and is less expensive than the motor, it can be checked with an ohm meter to determine which component is faulty.

If you can send me your model number I can pull up the wiring diagram to determine which type of start component is on your Whirlpool. The model number can be found on the tag just inside the door

Dryer wont start when start button is pressed, but humming sound


I'd sure start by making sure the belt isn't broken. You can usually see the belt with a flashlight after accessing the panel (some are in front, others in the rear) - don't go probing around bare armed without unplugging the unit....

Whirlpool dryer model LEQ8800JQ won't start when push start butto


I posted today (Jan 2, 2009) that I had same problem. Handyman tested for blown thermal fuse, etc and everything was fine. He said I have to replace the timer switch .. well guess what - I fidgeted with the start button (on/off) hard a few times while simultaneously pressing & releasing door switch and it did the trick. In my case the problem was most likely with the start button. Dryer is working fine now!
