Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Capacity Plus Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Duet 9600 and had the dryer door seal replaced, now the dryer intermittently will pop open during a cycle.. the dryer is level, and the seal is the right one for the model, I think the rubber is thicker.... what to do?? I am slamming the door to get it to stay closed, should we request a new gasket??

I was washing beach towels and during the rinse/spin cycle the door popped open on my whirlpool duet ht (model GHW9400PL4). I haven't been able to close the door since it opened before the cycle was...


those have a 2 latch system, sounds like the second latch that engages during the spin cycle never quite completed the safety lock , you could try and jumper the latch to see if that would release it, But it seems the secondary latch wasn't working properly in the first place, even the heaviest loads shouldn't pop the door open,

During a drying cycle, the whirlpool duet dryer door pops open, the indicators are flashing and even if I close and restart the cycle, the door pops open every few minutes.


This was a concern on some whirlpool and kenmore dryers. The fix was to replace both of the catches (the part on the dryer front panel ) and the latches (the part on the door) as well as a redesigned door gasket. Im sure if you contact Whirlpool customer assistance they would be able to supply you with a part number for the repair kit....

My duet dryer's door will pop while drying and then the door is not shut tightly. The door never completely opens just not shut tight and the light comes on in it. When this happens the dryer quits, and...


We had the same problem and surprised how rampant the issue was after referring to the internet reviews / troubleshooting, etc. The problem started after about 6 months and the solution came to me after much "headaching" over the problem. There were no 'codes' coming up just the door popping open during the cycle. I purchased a (2) twenty pack of 1/2" diamerter x 1/16" thick N42 Neo Earth Magnets and placed them along the top edge and bottom edge of the dryer opening. Instant fix in less than a minute. The thickness does not interfere with the door opening and the strength of the magnets is obvious. Hope this helps. Fix was less than $10 bucks and no service man, etc.

Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.

Rubber door seal has disconnected


if the wire in the seal is propely positioned and not slightly askew it should work OK But if it looks correct and leaks you will need a njew seal as it may have been bent or stretched

I had similar problem, the front door seal can trap small items,socks,handtowels. I didnt figure this out for some months, each load of clothes had a foul, mildew smell, Check door seal for trapped clothes, run intermittent cycles with bleach only, no clothes, be sure to leave door open when not in use to air out , this will reduce smell.
