Question about Whirlpool WED6200S Electric Dryer

Open Question

I have a whirlpool cabrio dryer. The grey lever broke on the start button. I took the top panel off and super glued the piece back together. After the glue dried, I put the top back on and dried a load of clothes. The next day however I tried to dry something and it would not come on. The start button is still fixed and it clicks when I press it, but nothing happens. What could have happened within a few hours to stop it from drying?

SOURCE: Clothes Not Drying well

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

SOURCE: Nothing happens when I push the start button.

There is a micro switch on the door to stop the dryer when you open the door during normal operation. Unplug the dryer and locate the switch by visually inspecting around were the door contacts the dryer and identify if you can remove the switch without opening the dryer top. If you cannot remove the switch from the front try to access the switch by lifting the top of the dryer cover off. Unplug one of the wires and touch the wire connector you removed to the other connector on the switch using electrical tape to insulate and hold it in place. Plug the dryer in and see if it works. If it does you need to order and replace the switch. If it does not the start switch could be bad and you will need to test it with an Ohm Meter which will be the safest way to test the switch.

How to open the case of the speakers?


since u hav removed the mesh and the 4 screws that hold the case of the speaker .As you said that the speaker has no opening points , most companies manufacture the speaker by sandwiching two parts together. In order to open the case of the speaker , you will have to see for a joint line on the edges . it indicates the attachment between the two parts of the speaker . If you find an opening at the back of the speaker as you have mentioned , try to remove the two joints of the speaker by pulling gently at the opposite ends .
