Question about Whirlpool Duet 7.0 Cu. Ft. Capacity Plus Electric Dryer
Whirlpool Duet dryer lets me only select delicates or bulky items. When turning the know it will not go to any other option but the rest of the lights are on and the bulb inside the dryer is on. Sometimes the dryer will just no turn on at all when I try to unplug and then replug it. The bulb in the dryer is working fine but why is it that the dryer someimes wont power or and when it does power on I can only select delicates or bulky? Is it just a fuse?
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question$$##!
