Hello there:
The controle panel board has serveral different parts on it that controle the features of the machine if it has suffered damage from electrical surges and or failure it may not work properly most of the time there is a small capacitor or diode that pops and fails that is on the controle board and needs to be replaced.

DLE9577SM Power issues. Control board?


  1. Power the dryer OFF and unplug it from the electrical outlet (You can also trip the circuit breaker if that's easier).
  2. Press and hold the START/PAUSE key for 5 seconds while the unit is without power.
  3. Turn the breaker back on, and power on the unit.

Clean Lint Filter Light Keeps Dryer from starting


Evidently the fuse blew for some reason.
Keep the dryer unplugged from power for one hour or so. If it still does start, you will have to take apart the dryer, check the fuse, check the thermal fuse, and test the wirings inside.
If you need to call arepairman use the number listed on the owner manual.

Eaton Viking 5 Dryer wont turn on


The door switch is a 3 way switch. Though the light comes on when the door is open the other part of the switch may be out for the dryer to start.

Dryer light bulb burned out


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Light Socket

The light socket can get corroded or a wire connection can come loose. You will need to remove the front panel to access the housing on most dryers.

Door Switch

If your dryer has an interior light, it probably uses a standard 40-watt appliance bulb, but check your owner's manual to be sure. If the bulb is good but the light won't come on, check the door switch, which serves two functions: When the door is closed, it turns off the light and allows the dryer to start. When the door is open, it turns on the light and prevents the dryer from starting. To check the door switch check for continuity. You should have some when the door is closed and none when the door is opened.If not replace the door switch by removing the front panel.

It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker

Electric dryers use 220 volts or two power lines of 110 volts each. Some components in the dryer need only 110 volts; the heating element requires 220 volts. So it's possible for one part of the dryer to be fine and another part to have a short circuit. Short circuits can be caused by the heating element, the main power cord, or any other part of the internal wiring. Loose connections on the power cord cause failures and or fires. This can be checked with the dryer unplugged and removing the service cover and visually check for burning and mechanically check for tightness.

If the circuit breaker trips or the fuse blows when the dryer is unplugged, it's likely the problem is with the house wiring, fuse box, or circuit box. Contact a qualified electrician.

Unplug dryer and try bypassing the thermal fuse by taping the two wires together and plug back in and try to start. If starts replace thermal fuse.

Hello!WE had recent power outage ,now door opener won't work.unit has power lights come on when remote pad pressed,but nodoor action?thank you


Along with the power outage you probably also had a power surge. You need to pull the logic board and check the printed circuit board for burnt or missing traces. Unplug the unit first.

Garage door opens w/ Power outages


You will need to get a surge protector on this unit first of all. You will have to replace the logic board and maybe the wall button or sensors depending on how bad the surge was. Any time the power goes out the logic board can be affected by it. Thanks BB

Hi fixya. I solved the problem myself, it was pretty easy. I just unplugged the power; let it sit for a minute; plugged the power back in; then I opened the dryer door and while manually holding down the door switch, I manually spun the dryer drum and simultaneously my son hit the start switch - you need three hands to perform this procedure - and it started running! Then I let it run for at least an hour, and ever since that it has started perfectly well.
