Question about Whirlpool Dryers
After removing the dryer from on top of the washer, I found it was easy to expose the back of the control panel containing the Power On/Off switch. A quick check of the switch's continuity confirmed the bad switch. However, after reinstalling the switch connectors and plugging the dryer back in, the switch started working. It appears the problem is intermitant.
While the internals of the dryer were exposed, I also checked the door switch (which was good) and sprayed electrical contact cleaner on all of the switches and vacuumed out the dust and reassembled the dryer (which is now working) and ordered a new Power On/Off switch so I will have it when the switch mis-behaves the next time.
The most difficult part was removing the dryer from on top of the washer where both units are built in to a wall of cabinets.
