TRY UNPLUGGING THE DRYER OR DISCONNECT POWER BY TURNING OFF THE BREAKER. LET IT SET FOR 5 MINUTES OR MORE. THEN, REAPPLY POWER AND SEE IF THE MICROCOMPUTER RESETS. IF NOT, LOOK AT THE CONTROL FOR A LITTLE LOCK SIGN. SOME CONTROLS HAVE A CHILD LOCK FEATURE THAT LOCKS THE CONTROL AND HOLDING THAT BUTTON FOR 5 SECONDS WILL LOCK/UNLOCK THE CONTROL. IF YOU CAN'T FIND IT, TRY STARTING AT THE LEFT SIDE AND PRESS EACH BUTTON, ONE AT A TIME, FOR 5 SECONDS TO SEE IF ONE WILL UNLOCK THE CONTROL. IF YOU FIND IT, WRITE IT DOWN FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

My dryer just wont work almost like it has no power. the dryer is only a year old. my husband tried to bi pass that we read to try and then it just kept popping the circuit breaker


If this unit is "Popping" the CB, then you have a VERY serious fault, You will need to use a professional. This unit may ineed be dangerous to work on.
The best thing to do is to contact Whirlpool, and ask them for a referral to an authorised service center, make contact here and request a service call, now when they arrive ONLY first ask for a "Quote" as to whats wrong and costings and go from there.

I have a stackable washer and dryer. Both have worked fine except recently clothes started getting caught between the drum and the front frame of the dryer. My husband pulled it apart checked the screws...


You may have a felt seal in the front that needs replaced. A wire off the pin switch could be off, and you will see the pin switch when you open the door, and make sure it is clicking.

My dryer is taking about 1 1/2 hours to dry. It still has the heating element working but no matter what setting I put it on, it is taking 91 minutes, 95 minutes to dry. Any ideas why it started to take...


How is the filter and exhaust pipe? Have you cleaned them recently? I think your machine has a clog somewhere between the filter and the outside vent hood.

Pull your machine away from the wall, remove the pipe ... if it is plastic, please consider replacing it with a metal one. Metal will not burn. Vacuum the pipe end to end - then check the flapper outside ... is it clogged? clean it.

Dryer runs no heat


Sounds to me you either blew the fuse or tripped the circuit for the heating element. Try replacing the fuse or resetting the breaker before trying any repairs.

There may be a capacitor in the motor circuit which has shorted out. The capacitor helps the motor start. If the capacitor is shorted, the motor won't start by itself, but will run fine if urged by hand. Good luck.

Not blowing hot air anymore


there are two thermostats..one above and one below the heating element..they probably need to be replaced..about 30 bucks canadian..have the shop check your heating element for resistance I had the same problem with my Whirlpool, when I called around for prices one shop suggested the thermostats and then tested my element for conductivity. When it passed he sold me the thermostat replacements(they are sold in pairs) They were very easy to install, just make sure the wires are on correct..Check for small marks beside the leads and then match them up while removing old and installing new. I hope this helps
