    I bought my dryer about a year ago--worked great until this morning...now this exact problem is happening.

  • skinner785 Apr 07, 2009

    Return it if you can -- seriously. This machine just gets worse and worse over time. We bought one about 4 years ago and rarely use it -- maybe once a week to dry our towels and the control panel on it is shot. The only good news is we're selling our place and the Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer will be staying with it. I was really disappointed in these appliances for what we paid for them and how gently we've used them. We are seriously considering going back to the top loading style when we buy for our new place -- and they won't be Whirlpool.

Dryer shuts off after one minute



  1. Lid Switch Doesn't Latch
    • A Whirlpool Duet dryer has a latch on the interior frame of the door. It essentially locks the door closed when the dryer is operating to keep you from opening the door and becoming injured by the tumbling drum. The dryer can only run when the latch is secured. If the latch breaks, a dryer might start but shut off prematurely. Open the door and press the latch down with your finger. It should make a ticking sound when you release it. Replace it if it doesn't.

    Unsteady or Damaged Power Cord
    • A dryer's power cord delivers electricity from the electrical outlet to the machine. If the power cord isn't firmly plugged into the outlet, it can interfere with the electricity transfer. While your Whirlpool Duet dryer might start, it probably will shut off soon afterward if the cord is wobbly. Also, if cords wires are visible through the rubber encasing, the cord might be defective. Though the dryer turns on, a faulty power cord might not be able to sustain the dryer's long-term operation.


    Triggered Thermal Fuse Faulty Control Panel
    • The Whirlpool Duet dryer's control panel operates with the support of multiple wires that link to various dryer components. After you choose a drying setting and turn on your dryer, the control panel begins running elements of the dryer. If one of the wires fails, it can disrupt the performance of your dryer. Contact a dryer repair specialist if you suspect that the control panel might have short circuited. If your dryer is still under warranty, rather than replace the corrupt wire, he might recommend replacing the entire panel.

I press the start button on my whirlpool duet dryer and it beeps, but doesn't start


This is a common issue caused by a blown thermal fuse located on the blower housing and wired in series with the motor. Power to the motor is then cut and therefore cannot run. No dryer function works when the motor cannot run. Click on the link below for the complete details of the troubleshooting and repair procedure.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

My whirlpool dryer just beeps when you try to start it. The panel is lit up the door is shut, push start and it just beeps...any idea what the problem is


To unlock the Control Locked feature:
Press and hold the End Of Cycle Signal button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off.

NOTE: When the dryer is running and Control Locked light is on, the dryer can be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If holding doesn't unlock the feature, it is likely a faulty interface. I am having the same problem with my Whirlpool dryer and it is the interface, but it seems that a lot of people are able to correct the issue just by pressing the End of Cycle button for 3 minutes.

Here is a link to parts, numbers, and prices from Sears:

Gas duet. Mod: GGW9250PWO Ser: MR3604435. Front panel under Status: "Control Locked" light is lit..nothing else works, including Control On button. Dead. Can the dryer be reset??


is the other lights DIM(partially lit)?
If so it could be one of the following.
1.) Intermittent ribbon cables between the control board and the Interface board (one with the buttons) Reseat all four cables.
2.) faulty control board.
3.) faulty Input board.

Dryer wont start - no lights


Dryer door does not think it is closed. There is a sensor on the top of the door that is probably not making contact with the door. Trying pushing the top part of the door and holding it then press the start button.. if the unit starts running then you know what it is. I just had one of these dryers delivered today and had to find out about this by myself tonight!!
