Michael Pryor I got a dryer model number.WED7500VW, is not turning on door switch onewire Was burn....


The door switch activates when the dryer door is closed. On most dryers, the door switch makes an audible clicking sound when it activates. To determine if the door switch is working, try starting your dryer and then listen for the "click." If the door switch makes a clicking sound, it is probably not defective. If you don't hear a click, use a multimeter to use the door switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Dryer wont start


If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Here is a video to show you how to do the repair. If you would post your dryer make and model number, I will be able to point you to the part you will need. richroth_35.gif

I have power to the dryer and it allows me to choose drying cycles but when i push the knob in to start the dryer it has an error code of "DO" and will not let the dryer start. I have tried to unplug the...


DO stands for Door Open.
Check on the inside of the door and insure that the plastic tab-like, finger-like actuator that fits into the slot on the dryer is still there and not broken.
This tab is what pushes in the door switch on the dryer and let's the dryer know it's safe to start. If it is there, you could have a bad door switch or control board.
I'd suspect the door switch first.
You can take a flat-head screwdriver and stick it into the slot at the door switch while pushing start to see if the dryer runs. If it does, you're door switch is ok. If not, we need to replace the door switch.
I can help you further by getting you part numbers and part-ordering information, but I'll need the make and full model number.
Try those tests and get back to me?
Best, G

DRYER DOES NOT DO ANYTHING


Check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

Dryer will not work


If it is whirlpool--Make sure it has power. Then: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 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519
