Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
The light inside comes on when door opened, but control panel does not respond. there is no error code, just no response. is there a lockout, a fuse or is control panel itself dead? we have not had electrical storms and it worked perfectly a couple of days ago
Without actually being there to test for 120V at the controller board....Yes the main control board has failed.
First thing to check is the outlet, however to make sure the breaker or fuse has not been tripped... however no response from the machine at all indicates a primary controller failure.
If you reply with the exact model # I can help you with locating a replacement if you are going to do the replacement yourself.

If the display is totally out it is likely the thermal fuse.....
, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)
good luck and have a nice day

Your control panel must be dead. You can buy a new control panel.
Follow the steps in Page #4 & Page #5. Itshows how to get access to remove the control panel and control board:
Once you lift the control panel up and hinge it back, you can take the control board off, then remove the control panel itself from its hinges in the back, then install the new control panel and your existing control board.
Unplug your dryer first.
Please rate my solution.

There is no error code. check fuses inside.
