My boy put his weight on the dryer door while taking clothes out of it. Now it won't stay closed, it keeps popping open. The whirlpool dryer is 6 months old, It's not the latch.


Place dryer on the floor
put car jack under the opened dryer door and gentle lift the door in the opposite direction with the child sitting on the dryer when placed on the floor. Experiment - A little bit at a time test door until latch works again.
Be careful not to damage the door with too much jacking / lifting.
May want to place a piece of timber between top of jack and door to minimize damaging the door.

Dryer will not start


Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks and clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406107
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

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!!

The light burned out last week and now the dryer won't turn on


Some dryers that have an interior light that is controled by the door switch, check the light to see if it's burned out, if it's not your door switch may be bad, when you open the door the door switch allows the interior light to come on, when you close the door the door switch shuts the light off, a bad door switch will not allow your dryer to start.

Clunking whirlpool drier


rollers and or felts are cheap,
much cheaper than a new dryer,
and nobody now makes a dryer that will last 25 years.
I have maytags 1972, 1974, kenmore 1968, speed queen 1980,
in each apartment building used by 11 families, to keep them running costs peanuts

new dryers?, - 3 years is all you get before the $$$ starts

Whirlpool duet problem with door lock


I've had this same exact problem and that's why I'm at this site.   I have had success with holding the start button and hitting the door right over the place where the switch is on the other side.  That worked good until today so I've called a service tech to come out later this week.  Give that a try and maybe it will work for you.
