Replaced rollers on dryer put back together door closed but keep getting message that it is not closed and wont run?


In order to replace the rollers you had to take off the dryer front. You probably had to unplug the wires to the door switch which if I remember right is in the top left corner of the front panel. Check those connections to the push button switch. If it is not connected, the door will show as open even though it is closed. Or the switch got damaged and is not making contact inside when door is closed. If i remember it is a 3 wire 1 piece plug.It also operates the drum light.

Whirpool Fronload Dryer has power, timer cycles through, but it is not running. The dryer worked two days ago when I ran a load. I went to dry a load this morning and it turns on, everything lights up...


The reasons can be a fault on the program controller unit but as the door does not close the program also will not move further. This must be the clue to the fault. Remove and check the lock and the settings. manually close the door with force and see if the program cycle starts, if not check the door switch and the control panel. Also check for output when the timer counts down. If not the controller unit must be checked for possible problems.

Dryer wont work


Probably have an open fuse. take off the back and by the exhaust is a skinny white fuse. jump the wires together and see if dryer will work. Replace it if so.

The light will not turn off and dryer wont run


CK,
There's a switch behind the dryer door. Push it in and out with your finger, you should here it "click, click, click" and the light should go on and off. If it doesn't, you'll need to replace the door switch.

If that's the case, I'll need the full model number. It's on a sticker on the front panel behind the door. (it should be like three digits, decimal point and about 7 more numbers... 110.*******) With that number, I'll be able to look up parts for you and guide you through this easy repair.

Whirpool dryer


I hate to ask the obvious, but, is there power to the outlet?

Is there power to the inside terminal block of the dryer...where the power cord connects? Are the wires all connected? Are any of them burnt?

Does the dryer make ANY noise at all? Motor attempts to start? Ticking sound when timer is on?

Does it heat up at all?

There is a switch in the front of the dryer that is actuated by the door being closed...TIGHT.

If the door is not shut completely, the switch will not allow the dryer to start.

If you an hear the motor running but the drum is not turning, the belt is broken.

If you can narrow down the symptoms I could probably be more help. Comment back. Thanks!
