Light is located just above the door on the inside of the drum. It has a clear plastic lens on it. The lens has a hinge on the top and a retention feature on the bottom. You can see all of this with a mirror. Simply push the button up and the lens will swing up. You can then access the light bulb.

Check for two screws down the bottom right and left sides of your dryer (on the front section). Remove teh screws, and remove the front panel by lifting up and out. Watch your fingers since the front will pop off when you get it up far enough. Don't let the front drop, there are wires attached to your start switch (on the inside of the door). You should be able to se the bulb at that point and change the bulb out. One thing you may also want to do is clean out the dryer of lint and other items that may pose a fire hazard when you have that front door open!

Good LUck

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Light Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.





Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

How to replace burned out light bulb


You need to remove the top cover to access the bulb. That is the only way on most microwaves.

Light bulb burned out- can I replace myself?


Yes you can. The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

It "popped" a circuit breaker


NORMALLY THERE ARE SCREWS TO REMOVE TO ACCESS A PANEL TO REMOVE THE LIGHT BULB. IF THERE ARE NOT, THEN THE EXTERIOR COVER MAY NEED TO BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE LIGHT BULB. THIS EXTERIOR COVER HAS SCREWS.
MAKE SURE YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER IS OFF BEFORE YOU TRY TO REPLACE THE BULB.

I can not figure out how to get into the rear light bulbs (Stop light, etc). The manual says to remove two (phillips) screws to disengage the housing from the body. There's even a a picture. However, on...


To access the rear lights, you access them from inside the trunk. Pull down the carpet at rear of trunk near latch. There should be the screws the manual is referring to. Once you locate and remove all screws, gently pull the light assembly away from body. Replace the needed bulbs then gently push assembly against the body, replace the screws and set carpet back in place.

Whirlpool Dryer 3.5 years old has power but will not turn on. Not a breaker problem. has electricity. Drum turns by hand. No noise is heard.


we had a very similar problem on our DLE3777W LG clothes dryer. It would power up normally, all drying options and speed and heat selections behaved normally but when you tried to start the dryer the start button and the time remaining indicator would flash until the unit was turned off. Called LG and Best Buy and they could only tell us to contact a repair shop. But I realized that the light was burned out inside, so I replaced it myself to avoid being charged by the technician I was about to call. The burned out light bulb WAS the problem, as soon as it was replaced the dryer worked perfectly. I think I saved a couple of hundred dollars with a $4 light bulb. I would have been mad to have the technician show up and charge me $120 just to show up, then an hourly rate and then the bulb.
