SOURCE: Sport Duet dryer will not start, even though power light is on

If the unpluging for the night helped reset the system and then worked?
Then there is an electronic problem that needs to be addressed and diagnosed.
You have 3 mor months warranty so I suggest you start using it now .
Therefore you have a record of this problem before it ends and if anything happens after the end of your warranty they will help you anyway or replace the dryer for you ,ANYWAY! Yes they do that if they see there were defects prior to the end!!
If you ever have a problem after the warranty is up call, " Whirlpool Consumer Affairs"
They have the power!

Make an appointment with Whirlpool now and it will cost you nothing.

Let me know what they find.

Please remember to leave me a rating!

SOURCE: my duet front loader dryer has no power

If you have 220v going to the unit you want to take the bottom pannel off. It should be three tork screwws. Then there is a little white fuse mounted on the blower houseing. This is the most common problem especally if your vent has not been cleaned in a while. (over 3-4 years.)

Since no model number was given, check to see if you have a setting commonly noted as "wrinkle guard", "wrinkle shield", "press care" or something to that affect. Those settings will run the dryer for as much as 90 min after a completed drying cycle to prevent wrinkles in clothing, allowing you time to remove the cloths after a dry cycle if you are busy.

Turning off and on in timed cycle

Sounds like you have it on wrinkle prevent, a feature that keeps your clothes from wrinkling before you pull them out of the dryer. Check your user manual.

My dryer's cotton/time dry/wrinkle free option know turns freely. Dryer will not start.

Take the other knob from the other switch nd put it in that place. It should turn then . You will be able to turn it on by a pair of pliers until you get a replacement knk.

Dryer will not stop running

Your machine may have a feature called wrinkle guard or wrinkle shield, which basically keeps tumbling the clothes without heat to prevent wrinkles from setting in. Turn that feature off and see if that does the trick.

Kenmore elite dryer - how do I turn on the wrinkle guard? if the light is steady - is that on? is the light for the wrinkle guard or the damp dry cycle. Why does the static guard light flash?

Head over to the manufacture's website.

Typically - they have a SUPPORT section that you enter your full model number in, and you can download the manual for free.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
