SOURCE: my whirlpool dryer is dead
Most newer dryers have a thermal fuse link which prevents them from producing heat if it has overheated due to lint build up. Safety! Remove the back of the dryer after you unplug it of course. Look for a white, two connector, block about 1/4 by 1-1/2 inches, mounted to the back of the heat transfer duct. Remove both of the wires from the the connectors and test the fuse for continuity. Multi meter needed. This should show 0 Ohms. If there is no change on the meter than this fuse is bad. Most any appliance parts place will have in stock. $12 - $15 Clean out as much lint as posible from the exhaust opening with a vacuume and reinstall the back panel.

Sounds like the control panel may be dead. If you cannot get any lights to come on at all on the front panel, its probably a goner. You can check the voltage coming out of the control pc board via the schematic inside the dryer panel. I have this same exact problem. I replaced the control board 3 times because the panel seems fine if i plug it into an external power supply but will not work when plugged into my dryer. I have my jumpered and running off of a circuit breaker. I have checked every part in the entire unit. That was over 2 years ago. I still need to get a control panel and see if it fixes mine but after dropping $130 on the control board, i feel i could buy another dryer with the $200 they want for the control panel. Also this dryer seems to streak my clothes with brown or rust colored spots. The dryer is spotless inside. I even took off the rubber seal because i thought the glue is what was possibly doing it when it heated up but that didn't help either....This dryer sucks.

Mine isn't stacked and I had the same problem. My husband and I just bought ours last week. I had to close the door and then press on the top of the door to hear another click and it then would start the cycle. I don't know if this is correct or not. I have searched whirlpool web site and not found mention of this. I am calling the department store we purchased ours from to see if this is normal. Hope this helps!

This Error indicates
a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is
bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it
should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door
appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should
be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
