Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Duet Dryer I open the door and the light goes on but the panel will not light up or turn on at all. We moved it out to clean behind it and clean out the lint in the tube that goes outside and now it just won't work. I checked the breaker and it is OK.

    Thank you. My husband actually was able to look into it and one of the electrical board connections came loose. I cannot believe how sensitive these Whirlpool duets are. I just had to pay $500 for my washer and they are only 3 years old.

Dryer shuts off after one minute



  1. Lid Switch Doesn't Latch
    • A Whirlpool Duet dryer has a latch on the interior frame of the door. It essentially locks the door closed when the dryer is operating to keep you from opening the door and becoming injured by the tumbling drum. The dryer can only run when the latch is secured. If the latch breaks, a dryer might start but shut off prematurely. Open the door and press the latch down with your finger. It should make a ticking sound when you release it. Replace it if it doesn't.

    Unsteady or Damaged Power Cord
    • A dryer's power cord delivers electricity from the electrical outlet to the machine. If the power cord isn't firmly plugged into the outlet, it can interfere with the electricity transfer. While your Whirlpool Duet dryer might start, it probably will shut off soon afterward if the cord is wobbly. Also, if cords wires are visible through the rubber encasing, the cord might be defective. Though the dryer turns on, a faulty power cord might not be able to sustain the dryer's long-term operation.


    Triggered Thermal Fuse Faulty Control Panel
    • The Whirlpool Duet dryer's control panel operates with the support of multiple wires that link to various dryer components. After you choose a drying setting and turn on your dryer, the control panel begins running elements of the dryer. If one of the wires fails, it can disrupt the performance of your dryer. Contact a dryer repair specialist if you suspect that the control panel might have short circuited. If your dryer is still under warranty, rather than replace the corrupt wire, he might recommend replacing the entire panel.

Duet dryer is making a humming noise when cycle starts a d during


whenever i hear a humming sound in a dryer it's usually the motor or something caught in the blower wheel stopping the motor from spinning.open the door and see if you can spin the drum.if it spins by hand try this,open the door,push in the door switch with one hand,have someone push the start button while you hold in the door switch and spin the drum by hand helping it move,if it runs you have a bad motor,if it doesn't remove the bottom panel and see if the belt is broke and stuck in the motor but like i say usually it has something to do with the motor not spinning.hope this helps

Brand new Duet Dryer - WED9400SZ model - just installed and connected - everything looks good. BUT, it won't start. All I hear is a beep sound? any setting to be turned on?


Make sure that the door is firmly closed and the light inside the drum goes out. I have model YWED9400SW (brand new) that had the same problem. The spring lock on the top was not fully engaging. Press firmly on the top and bottom of the door until the light goes out then press start. Good luck.

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.
