NO RESET BUTTON, BUT THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE 120 VOLTS THERE, THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD. REPLACE FUSE AND CHECK FOR RESTRICTION IN THE AIR FLOW. ALSO, IF YOU HAVE A THERMOMETER THAT CAN MEASURE TEMPS BETWEEN 100 AND 200 DEGREES, CHECK THE TEMP AT THE EXHAUST ONCE THE DRYER IS OPERATING AGAIN. IT SHOULD CYCLE OFF SOMEWHERE AROUND 170 DEGREES. IF IT GOES OVER 200 DEGREES, REPLACE THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT.

Dryer stops


Unplug your dryer plug. Go to your house electric panel, turn off your 30 amp dryer breaker, and then turn it back on. This resets the breaker. So before opening up the dryer to look for fuses, make sure you have power at the receptacle. Don't plug anything into the receptacle until you have wired it correctly. If you want to run it by me when you're wiring it, that's fine with me. . I hope this helps. Good Luck! Jim

Tip

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


Hi.

If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.


When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.


If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.


Regards.

Ginko.

My whirlpool dryer will not start when I hit the start button. There is no noise and it has power.


This sounds like it is a bad control board. But try resetting the system. To do this just unplug the dryer from the wall for 15 minutes. Plug it back in and see what happens. If nothing happens then you have a bad control board.

the other thing that you can check is for a bad fuse. You will need to remove the back panel where the power cord goes into the back of the dryer, there you will see a control board with a fuse. Make sure that is not blown.

I have a Speed Queen dryer that just stopped last night. There appears to be no power getting to the unit--dryer does not start, light does not come on, timer does not advance--yet the circuit breaker...


Hello

Is there power at the dryer receptacle? Is the dryer wired directly or does wire from electrical breaker go to a receptacle first? Have it checked with a meter. If unit is wired directly have it changed to a receptacle and cord. Make sure there is power at the connections on the dryer. If everything is okay, then it is a dryer problem

Dryer stopped- not fuse


are you sure you have power to unit? first check for 240volts @dryer receptacle,then you could have either power wires or the neutral wire inside dryer burned off or broken, if it has an electronic control panel there is an electronic protection fuse to protect controls from surges

Does the Bosch Tumble Dryer WTA3003GB/01 have a trip reset button


YOUR DRYER HAS A FUSE AND NEEDS TO BE CHECKED. SEE IF IT IS LOCATED SOMEWHERE WHERE THE POWER CORD COMES IN AT. IT SHOULD BE CLOSE TO THE MAIN POWER COMING IN OR MAYBE EVEN IN THE CONTROL PANEL AREA.

Dryer died


Hi! kiatt28
According to the manufacture (Whirlpool manufactures this model for Kenmore) PF is Power Failure, they do not recommended replacing the control. Have an electrician check the wall receptacle or breaker panel. I suspect you have a loose connection, sometimes it is just time to replace the receptacle.

Drum light works - contol lights don't/can't start dryer.


Either the machine control, or the user interface. Further diagnosis isn't possible. I'd try the machine control first. It's just under the top panel, along the left side.

My dryer doesn't run


If the dryer doesn't start or make any noise: 1) Be sure it is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don?t plug into standard 120-volt receptacles?they operate on 240 volts. Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected. 2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord. 4) Open the door and check the door switch. Press and release it: it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service. 5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic parts may be faulty. Call a service person.
