If the display shows '88' then place a heating pad on the display. Wait for the display to clear (10 - 15 min) and then the dryer will work. Sounds crazy, but it works for me every time.

Whirlpool duet washer dryer, Dryer is stuck on control lock

Whirlpool duet dryer will not start. Panel lights come on as usual and when press start machine clicks and will not start. Light on wet sensor lights and no drying action begins.


press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly. This is a secret test and reset for your dryers control, so please keep this between us. The whirlpool people would be heart broke if they see this posted on the web ;-) . If your dryer will still not start after this test, you may need a new control. If you need a part let me know and I can ship it right to you. Good luck and I hope this will fixYa and saves you the $400.00 it would cost for whirlpool to send a certified tech to come to your home.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer (2yrs old) Light buld died and dryer won't start. We changed bought a new light bulb but the dryer still doesn't start. The computerized buttons still litght up though.


Sometimes when a bulb goes out or is replaced the unit can short out.

Try holding your end of cycle signal button for 5 seconds, watch the light, if you control lock it, it will light but will not run because control lock is a safety feature.

Also try pushing door in and starting it, might be bad latch

Drum light works - contol lights don't/can't start dryer.


Either the machine control, or the user interface. Further diagnosis isn't possible. I'd try the machine control first. It's just under the top panel, along the left side.
