    Dryer doesn't run. The light on the front panel goes on but nothing else happens. I shut it off and waited but nothing reset. I made sure the door was shut. I tried different settings - nothing. Any suggetions on what I should try?

Whirlpool Dryer Various Test Procedures - Part 3


TEST #5 Moisture Sensor
NOTE: This test is started with the machine completely assembled.This test is performed when an automatic cycle
stops too soon, or runs much longer than expected. NOTE: Dryer will shut down automatically after 2-1/2 hours.
The following items are part of this system: Harness/connection, Metal sensor strips, Machine control electronics
1. Activate the diagnostic test mode and advance past saved fault codes.
2. Open the dryer door. If a continuous beep tone is heard and an alphanumeric number is displayed on the console as soon as the door is opened, a short circuit exists in the moisture sensor system. If this doesn’t happen, go to step 3. Otherwise, go to step 4. NOTE: Over drying may be caused by a short circuit in the sensor system.
3. Locate the two metal sensor strips on the inside of the dryer. Bridge these strips with a wet cloth or finger.
If a continuous beep tone is heard and a software revision number is displayed on the console, the sensor passes the test. Go to step 8. If not, continue with step 4.
4. Access the moisture sensor wires: Remove the lint screen. Remove the two wires holding the lint screen to the top. Remove the four screws from bottom of the duct in rear. Remove the duct from the dryer to access
the moisture sensor.Disconnect the sensor connector.
5. Access the machine control electronics. Remove the connector P13 from the circuit board. Check the main
harness connections between the sensor connector and machine control for a short or open circuit. Replace the main harness if necessary. If the harness is okay, continue with step 6.
6. Measure the resistance across the outermost contacts of the sensor connector that includes the two MOVs. Sensor Harness with MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) Sensor Connector Sensor Blower Housing Disconnect sensor connector. If a small resistance is measured, check for debris across moisture strips inside of the drum; clean if debris is present. If debris is not present, replace sensor harness with MOVs. Otherwise go to step 7.
7. Measure the resistance across each of the outermost contacts and the center terminal (ground connection).
If a resistance less than infinity is measured, replace the sensor harness with MOVs.
8. If moisture sensor diagnostic test passes, check the thermistor: Perform TEST #4a. If the problem persists after replacing the moisture sensor, harness with MOVs and thermistor, replace the machine control electronics.

TEST #6 Buttons and Indicators
This test is performed when any of the following situations occurs during the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic Test:
None of the indicators light up No beep sound is heard
Some buttons do not light indicators None of the indicators light up:

1. See Diagnostic Guide/Before Servicing.
2. Perform TEST #1 to verify supply connections.
3. Perform TEST #2.
4. Visually check that the P5 connector is inserted all the way into the machine control electronics.
5. Visually check the user interface assembly connections.
6. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly.
7. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
8. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
9. If indicators still do not light, the machine control electronics has failed: Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
Replace the machine control electronics. Plug in dryer or reconnect power. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
No beep sound is heard:
1. Visually check that the P5 connector is inserted all the way into the machine control electronics. If visual check passes, replace the user interface assembly.
2. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
3. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
4. If replacing the user interface assembly failed: Unplug dryer or disconnect power. Replace the machine control electronics. Plug in dryer or reconnect power. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
Some buttons do not light indicators:
1. Visually check the user interface assembly connections. If visual check passes, replace the user interface assembly.
2. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
3. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostics test to verify repair.

TEST #7 Door Switch
Activate the diagnostic test mode and perform the Door Switch Diagnostic test.
Functionality is verified with a beep each time the door is closed and opened, and a number and letter appears in the display (i.e., 0E, 09). If any of the above conditions are not met: Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
Check that the wires between the door switch and machine control electronics are connected. If the connections are OK, replace the door switch assembly and retest. If the door switch assembly has been replaced and dryer still does not start, replace the machine control electronics.

Start button will click but won't start


Hello. Your model dryer has a service flash on the lower door strike/catch concerning not staying closed or not closing properly. If the door is allowed to open too much, the door switch will not be closed and the dryer won't run. The part number for the new kit is 279570 and it includes 2 door strikes and several catches. You choose the ones you need. However, if the door *is* closing properly, you can put the unit in diagnostic mode(door closed, all indicators off) by pressing/holding any button *except* stop for 2 seconds, then releasing, press/hold 2 sec, release, press/hold 2 seconds, release-- all the indicator lights will light for 5 seconds, and an 8 88 will be shown in the display. If there are *no* active fault codes, the indicators will momentarily turn off and then stay on with the 8 88 displayed. If there is an active fault code, it will be flashing in the display. (ex. would be an "F" and "xx" where "xx" would be a number.) If you press the same button you originally pressed once, then again, then again, the most recent code will be displayed, then the next, and so on up to 4 stored codes. To turn off diagnostic mode, just press stop. I hope this helps you!

It heats up but doesnt stop after the clothes are dry


IT is the timer. If electronic needs to replace the board. If dial type, needs the timer

Need to relight pilot light on MDG6200AWW gas dryer.


That unit has an electronic ignitor. You should not have to lite the pilot. There is no pilot to lite. If the dryer is taking longer then normal to heat. Check your vent to the outside. If the ignitor is not turning on it could be the ignitor, flame sensor and or thermal fuse. Check D.I.Y. Appliance Repair Troubleshooting to see if there is anything that can help you there.

Sensor lite on


remove the top cover after unplugging the dryer,then look inside on the right hand wall for the tech diagnostics sheet,run the diagnostics per this sheet and you will find its either the sensor bar inside the dryer drum or the ribbon cable that connects the 2 to the "E.C.U." electronic control unit

Cant seem to figure out how to lite the pilot on this dryer. Please help Model # DD67980GDLAD


you don't lite it it's an electronic ignition if it's not 40 years old,the model number you sent isn't correct,this doesn't mean the ignitor is bad either,there are other parts that will stop it from liting,if it hasn't been cleaned out in a long time you can try reading out the thermal fuse and clean out the dryer so this doesn't happen again or call in a tech to help you out,good luck

The dryer will not start - the sensing lite comes on, and thats it. the motor doesnt even attempt to turn. the door open lite (in the drum) works with the door switch


sounds like the drum belt is broken there is a cut off switch to prevent the dryer from running/overheating if the belt may break

Dryer does not heat up


Sounds like you might have the gas coils going bad. Not that expensive for repair, and parts arent that much either. Worse case would be a control board has went bad, but not likely. Gas coil part number is : 694539, and 694540. Also, you may want to check to see if the ignitor is glowing, that part # is 279311. Good luck and let me know if that doesnt help you.
