    You really need a little more information. What were you doing before it happened? Is there anything sticking out that you can see? Did you dry anything that may have slid into a crack and jammed it shut?

Dryer doesn't stop when the door is opened


it sounds like your door switch is stuck. you can replace it yourself. first, shut off the breaker. second, wrap a putty knife with masking tape to prevent scratching up the dryer. then, use it to pop open the plastic catch on each front corner. take your time and look inside the small gap with a flashlight to help figure it out. after you have the top of the dryer safely tilted back, look for 2 wires running to the door. they will plug into a switch that is flipped when you close the door completely. you know what i mean, it probably used to click when you shut the door. unplug these wires from either side of the switch. remove the switch and replace it. hook up your wires. close the top and you should be good to go. good luck

Whirlpool Front Loader Dryer Door will NOT stay closed


I have the same issue with the door popping open. If you push hard on the bottom of the door then it snaps in. I think the bottom latch is broken or misalligned.

Check you r door safety switch.

Pop the top and remove the front. Check the switch unplug the power) for contunity first. Make sure it is saying the door is closed (contacts are closed) when the door is closed and saying the door is open (conacts open) when it is open.

Two things. 1. the dryer does not shut off when the door is opened. 2. I changed the light bulb, still does not work, and now the door will not fullly close and latch.


your door switch is stuck in the closed position
replace that and you should be ok
as far as closing it may be the switch stopping the door too

Washer Dryer - drum is filled with water even when switched off and door can still open!


Try the valves inside the back where the water hoses connect to the machine they should default to the closed position when water is not required

Need help with OLD dryer


IF YOU MEAN THAT THE DRYER STARTS BACK UP WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. CHECK TO SEE IF THE PUSH TO START BUTTON IS STUCK PRESSED IN AND NOT SPRINGING BACK OUT.
IF IT IS STUCK, TRY WD-40 TO LOOSTEN IT. OTHERWISE, REPLACE THE SWITCH.

IF THE DRYER KEEPS RUNNING WHEN YOU "OPEN" THE DOOR, THE DOOR SWITCH IS SHORTED. REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.
