My whirlpool duet dryer won't start. Everything

My whirlpool duet dryer won't start. Everything goes on (the buttons/lights) like its supposed to but it won't start. Is there anything I can do myself without having to call a repair man and pay $85.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question******

Brand new Duet Dryer - WED9400SZ model - just installed and connected - everything looks good. BUT, it won't start. All I hear is a beep sound? any setting to be turned on?


Make sure that the door is firmly closed and the light inside the drum goes out. I have model YWED9400SW (brand new) that had the same problem. The spring lock on the top was not fully engaging. Press firmly on the top and bottom of the door until the light goes out then press start. Good luck.
