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!

Whirlpool duet dryer


When the dryer is not is use, it is recommended to leave the dryer door open. What you are experiencing is probably due to outside air coming back thru the dryer vent (the louvers don't always close well due to lint). The temperature difference between the outside air that accumulates in the dryer and the inside air causes condensation.

MDL WED9600TAO WHIRLPOOL DUET STEAM - THE TEARDROW TRIM\r\nAROUND THE DOOR AND UP INTO THE CONTROLS IS LOOSE AND HAS THREE SMALL "CLIPS (?)" STICING OUT BUT I CAN'T SEE HOW TO REATTACH THE CLIPS...


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

Our new Whirlpool Duet steam electric dryer shuts down and the door opens minutes into the cycle. Unit is level so don't know what the problem is.


The latch is likely out of adjustment or broken.

1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

I've searched around for DIY instructions, but those are exceedingly difficult to locate. It seems that Whirlpool wants you to buy their Door Reversal Kit for 11.99 in order to accomplish this.
