Question about Whirlpool Dryers
I would start by checking to make sure the circuit breakers are not tripped. An electric dryer runs on 220 and will have a double circuit breaker - a gas dryer runs off of 110 and will usually not have a dedicated breaker. Once you have determined the power is on, the next most likely problem is the door switch. This prevents the dryer from being activated with the door open. You can "jiggle" the switch while attempting to start the dryer, or check the continuity with an ohmmeter.
