Whirpool Fronload Dryer has power, timer cycles through, but it is not running. The dryer worked two days ago when I ran a load. I went to dry a load this morning and it turns on, everything lights up...


The reasons can be a fault on the program controller unit but as the door does not close the program also will not move further. This must be the clue to the fault. Remove and check the lock and the settings. manually close the door with force and see if the program cycle starts, if not check the door switch and the control panel. Also check for output when the timer counts down. If not the controller unit must be checked for possible problems.

Maybe the filter is clogged and not draining the water. Have you tried cleaning the filter?

Dryer will not start after bulb burned out.


moch, the fact that the light is staying on when the door is closed leads me to believe that the door switch is the culprit. If that switch is not made you will not start. See if the pin is broken off. Start there and let me know. Catriver.
