Hi kroeter,
It is possible to reach the door switch by removing the bottom front plate on the dryer. You will see it above the right side. Before you reach into this section please make sure to unplug your dryer. If you need full access to the switch you will need to remove the top then the console then remove the entire front. You will need some torx screwdrivers. Start by removing the torx screws on the back top, then the top will slide back and you can remove it. Underneath that you will see the top of the console on the front, remove the screws in the console and lift it to remove. then you will be to the top of the door section again you will see torx screws, remove and lift the door section and you will be to the door switch. Good luck and I hope this will FixYa.

Dryer has no power. I think it has something to do with the door and the door switch


you are probably right. try pressing in door switch with screwdriver and pushing start, does it run? if not remove switch jump across door switch does it run? if so replace switch or just leave bypassed and tape up well.

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

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.


First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.
