SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric dryer, not getting any power

Mine shows a faint light behind the control locked indicator and the timer is dimly lit on the two middle horizontal bars (middle of the eights). They go off by pushing various button combos. If I unplug it for a week I can get the control to work for a few minutes.

I replaced the control board, it worked for 5 minutes, then back to nothing. I want to replace the interface but would rather not waste any more money.

I dont want to check every wire for continuity. If someone has fixed this problem, please let me know.

SOURCE: Whirlpool YGEW9250PW1 Electric dryer control locked problem

Hello,
I had the same problem, but my husband, who is an engineer, figured out that if you pull out the light bulbs that are not reading the correct volts on his volt meter, the control lock light will shut off and the dryer will start working. If you do not know how to do this, you can always buy a new control panel. I know this sounds to simple to be true, but we have bought several new "brains" (control boards), tried unpluging the dryer for days at a time, had an certified whirpool technician come out (who recommended buying a new control board), and nothing worked.

As for the knob not alligned with selection, pull the know out and put it back. Remember where it was when you pulled. Now power start. Are you pressing the button start a bit with force to see if it engages. Looks like you may have don but just in case. Then it could be your start switch button that need attention.

Hello Don, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your information posted...control locked light is lit on the control panel. Tried holding the start/cancel button. It is still locked even after unplugging for 30 min (that usually works)

...this is actually a fairly common problem with these washers (including Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Amana, (some)Kenmore to name a few built by Whirlpool) I hear about both on-line and doing on-site service.

The solution, however is usually pretty simple. As long as your washer is indeed the Whirlpool as listed above, give this a try and let me know how it goes.

I don't know what led to you pushing the "start/cancel" you've already tried, but this is the correct method and at the risk of being redundant...Press and hold the "END OF CYCLE /CYCLE SIGNAL" button as you count to 15...this will reset the control if there is no underlying issue.

Good luck. Let me know how it turns out and if I can help you in any manner going forward I will do whatever I can.

Thank you for choosing FixYa. If this solves the problem, please take a moment to rate the info provided here and a testimony on your experience here at FixYa today is appreciated.

(if it does not solve the problem, please provide the complete model number and let me know)

Regards,

Light is on that says control locked the dryer will not start


The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel and usually is not an indication of a washer malfunction.

If this is a Maytag Epic, Whirlpool Duet, or Kenmore Elite, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are also printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.

NOTE: If you cannot locate your owner's manual, you can download or print a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link and you will find your manual listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format.

The Control Lock is a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set by leaning against the panel, or following power interruptions due to brown outs and black outs. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

The Dryer says "Control Locked"


Try pressing an holding the "End of Cycle Signal" button on the front panel in for 3 seconds. This button is used to lock/unlock the control panel to keep small children from manipulating the controls when the dryer is not in use. A designed safety feature. If this does not work for you, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
