Door will not lock light stays on


Usually this is caused by the door being bent, the hinges being bent, or a worn out door strike/catch not holding the door tightly closed. Lol, got kids?? Mommy's little helpers love to lean on the doors(the ones that open/close vertically). Also, slamming the dryer door can break the little plastic arm attached to the door switch--I see MANY switches with the arms broken in-half or the strikes/catches damaged from slamming. Usually a relatively simple repair to replace the strike/catch.

Dryer door won't stay open while removing clothes


Likely the feet to the dryer are not level. Grab a large level and check to ensure the top front is level across.

If your door opens to the right, raise the front left foot by screwing it counterclockwise. Check level, and repeat.

Mirror the operation for a door that swings to the left.

Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.

Lights stay on constantly even when not running; does not run aft


That clip is necessary as it tells the dryer when the door is open and when the door is closed. you will have to get a new door switch.

Dryer won't start; light stays on whether door is open or closed.


Sounds like the door switch is not functioning or shorted......in other words the dryer thinks the door is open so it won't turn on.

Dryer door won't stay closed


hi,

shut off the breaker- pull the female receptacle clasp out of the front with flat screwdriver and needle nose and squeeze the back of it gently with pliers, replace, if its busted and you get mad, you can buy a standard padlock and latch and install that, that helps in other ways as well, careful to steer clear and watch the inner wall for wires and clearances if your going to retrofit that.
