Question about Dryers
Can you tell me if the door mechanism has detached and fallen inside the door recess will it prevent the dryer from coming on, there is no visible power light visible anywhere on the front panel. I can retrieve the lock by removing the front panel. Would this unit show no signs of power if the door mechanism isnt closing correctly. There are no signs to say that it is this alone causing the problem. It was working fine and then produced this fault.

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.

Your dryer is equipped with a thermal fuse located behind the drum seat on the heating coil.
There are two white wires connected to the fuse. Pull those off and connect together. Your door light will come on if that is your problem. There might have been a problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for kinked dryer hoses, dirty lint traps or anything that might have caused it to overheat. You must replace the fuse or you risk catching the dryer on fire.

The control board is bad. You will have to replace it. You might aslo theck the fuse, sometimes they look a little different than you are used to. Refer to your owners manual and wiring diagram to find it. You can also find more info on the Whirlpool website. Whirlpool makes Kenmore.
