SOURCE: control panel does not work

This is a process so right down everything, remove the 3 screws on the rear of the dryer for the top panel. Be sure you unplug the machine first before attempting this as high voltage is present. The front user panel is clipped to the chassis and we need to check two items. First the wire harness from the motor control unit to the panel and how well is the board attached to the panel. Look inside and you will see catchs bottom and top, with carefull lifting up and out the top loosens and then the bottom. We want to check the assembly and how well the wires are attached. If all looks sound unplug the board from the motor control unit and replug the unit. Now reattach to the chassis, make sure all is clear of the top and plug it in. Try to power up the unit, if not the panel is dead.
From when you mentioned the dryer light worked I know power is there for the board but I will not say off hand just buy a board, test always look for loose panels and wires then we go broke buying the part. Last is the machine new? If less than a year call sears, 1800for my home and have them fix it!

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.

SOURCE: dryer control panel wont light up and told I need a new panel

You can buy the control board yourself for about $200 and install it yourself. It could be a fuse inside that had blown too, Email me at buffalonymann@yahoo.com if you have any questions

that sounds weird to have all those lights on...
first thing is to try and remove the "lock"light...
push and hold the button, for 5 seconds, below the "lock" light,
that should get the control back to normal operation. then if you still cant get the unit to turn on, try to unplug the dryer for a few minutes.
if you still cant get it to turn back on, call sears "customer service" and complain since your machine should not have failed at this early in its life.

Make sure your light control is turned on. Either turn odometer pin or there is a control left of steering wheel that controls the light level

The power is still on to the dryer (the light is on when open) but the control panel started beeping like crazy while running. So I turned it off, and now the control panel won't work, light up, anything!


I regret to inform you that the electronic board in your dryer is "cooked". This part can not be repaired, it will need to be replaced

Whirpool GGw9250Pw3 no power on Control Panel Inside light works


In my case, the problem was a dead main board. The board cost $190 and the overall repair cost $335. I will never buy another Whirlpool due to this experience.
