Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
Whirlpoold Duet electric dryer. Put in wet clothes, select cycle and press start. Door locks and "sensing" button lights up then NOTHING! Dryer won't start. I just worked 5 min ago! Pressed the button inside the dryer harder to see if that was the issue. Also gave the drum a 1/4 spin for the "dead spot" Still not working. Any suggestions?
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.
