You have a bad timer that is allowing your heating element to come on.


Call a whirlpool tech or service company to come out and service your dryer.

Do not use until serviced.

I have a Whirlpool DWJR-ELE-2406028-FM54 and when I open the door (while machine is running), the drum keeps turning. How do i remedy this?

sounds like the door switch is broken,good thing it broke in the running position or the dryer wouldn't start.that isn't a good model number either,open the door look around the opening where you put the clothes in and you should see a tag with the model number,you'll need that to order the door switch.the dwjr comes up but not the rest if this is a ge dryer.

Whirlpool Dryer LEL8858EQ1

If the door switch was a 3 terminal device, and all three terminals had a wire going to them, did you get the NO and NC wires connected to the right place?

You should be able to follow the circuit that can be found on the back service panel or inside the control head.

Let me know what you find or if you have any more questions.
