    OK, I've taken the whole thing apart already. You lacked telling me what to do after I get it all apart.

    Do I need to buy a new panel?

  • connieklug Sep 11, 2009

    I have taken my dryer completely apart-back panel, top panel and checked all of the wiring. Everything looks good. The first expert told me to take it apart and unplug everything on the panel. Then no solutions after that. Does he want me to replace the panel? Where do I order one?

  • connieklug Sep 11, 2009

    I don't know. I'll have to switch out the control panel and see if that fixes the problem to be able to answer if the solution helped or not. But I do appreciate the advice.

HI. The first check point will be to inspect the door switch for faults. You have stated that the light illuminates when the door is ajar. This will rule out any door switch issue,and point to an electronic control assembly failure at this time. I recommend the replacement of this failed control assembly(board) asap. It has failed. The logic sector on this failed board is damaged. The user interface receives its power, via electronic control assembly(board). If the user interface(display), has no power, this will confirm my diagnosis.

Part Number is 8546219

The control board is usually the problem The procedure is simple, after unplugging the dryer, it just takes 7 screws to remove and about 6 things to unplug on the board. I recommend labeling the connectors or take a photo before you unplug things for reference.
It took me about 30 minutes to do this fix.

Hello,

I suspect the problem with your dryer is the door switch as opposed to the timer...its the responsibility of the door switch to stop the dryer when the door is opened as well as turning on the light too when the door is opened.

The part number for the door switch is 3406107 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
searspartsdirect.com
apwagner.com

Dryer wont start - no lights


Dryer door does not think it is closed. There is a sensor on the top of the door that is probably not making contact with the door. Trying pushing the top part of the door and holding it then press the start button.. if the unit starts running then you know what it is. I just had one of these dryers delivered today and had to find out about this by myself tonight!!
