The trim ring surrounding the opening and control panel has come loose. The clips are all still in the dryer face and I am not sure how they reattach to the ring themselves

This was a very poor design from the factory ..The clips attach to the trim ring at the factory by plastic welding (MELTING) them in place to the stanchion's, in working on many of these sometimes you can super glue them back in place, but you will have to remove the trim ring completely to do it. other times i had to just replace the entire ring as it was to far gone to repair Just a bad design guess they didn't think it would ever have to be taken apart

Whirlpool duet dryer ring around the door keeps u hinging. They are metal and what I've tried is pushing them back in.


The clips are first secured to the ring. Then, the clips themselves go into holes around the door.

They are somewhat spring loaded and you'll need to compress the fingers on the clips to remove them from the holes. Then, position the clips properly on the ring and push the slotted section (on the clips) onto the plastic tabs around the inside of the ring. Then, use a soldering iron to melt the tab heads so the the clips will stay on the ring. Then, just line up the holes on the dryer with the clips and start pushing them back into the holes.

Remember, make sure the clips are aligned properly, else they won't line up with the holes.

Good luck!

The blower fan is lose how do you tighten it up . Whirlpool Duet Dryer


Use a 3/4' wrench on the blower wheel and a 7/16 wrench on the front shaft of the motor. The threads on the rear shaft are left hand threads so make sure you turn the shaft in the proper direction.check the wheel for cracks,usually if they are loose they're damaged,

I looked for door switch kit and some descriptions say for stacking...i don't need that and have duet model 9200 in white. want both doors to open in opposite diections. do i need to buy kits?


ummm.. you can only reverse the door opening in oyour dryer, your washer CANNOT be switched it only opens to the left. the dryer can be switched and the "hine kit" if applicable, only contains a new peicw of trim to cover the exposed trim after revesing the door( the catches are on top and bottom no need to reverse them)
