How do I fix a dryer with control panel that is not making anything happen, and the door opening and closing is what turns the machine on and off?

is cheaper to have a service tech come in and trouble shoot the root of your problem., since boards are really expensive and you could be replacing them all day long and they are not returnable just to later find out you had a bad display screen.

The front light lit on my Whirlpool dryer is showing control locked


If the front light lit is control locked, that means that your Whirlpool electric dryer had been set in control lock mode.

Control lock is a special mode that will prevent user from changing settings or using control until the dryer gets unlocked again.

The machine is set to control lock mode by holding down the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for several seconds. In the same way you can stop the control lock mode when the machine is already set to Control Lock.

When the dryer is running and Control Locked is on, the dryer can still be stopped by pressing the Pause/Cancel button, but cannot be restarted until the control is unlocked.

If the front light lit is control locked but the dryer door opens and it does not turn off, then you are probably in this situation. In that case, the door will be opening , but the machine still stays locked.

Disconnecting the machine from power, either unplugging power cord or tripping circuit breaker, won't help. The control lock system is designed to stay on in case of power failure.
If the machine is control locked, try unlocking it with the following procedure.

To unlock: Press and hold the CONTROL LOCK/UNLOCK button for 3 to 5 seconds to turn the control lock feature off.

If that does not work, try disconnecting power for five minutes to reset the machine, and eventually do unlock again. As said, cutting power alone will not cause the machine to unlock.

If the machine is still not responding, the lights stay on all the time, the dryer panel does not respond to control unlock procedure, and the door does not lock anymore, then it may be a defective control board.

If you are in this situation, before replacing the control board more parts, including the door lock must be tested. In that case the best option may be contacting the Whirlpool support number listed on the Dryer use and care manual, usually in the last pages.

In this case try resetting control lock as explained above, as told the dryer is more likely control locked and then stopped.

I purchased a new WED9400SU electric dryer and it work fine for a few cycles but all of a sudden the start button does not light up and therefore it will not start no matter what I do. I've unplugged all...

alright, make sure that the door switch/sensor isn't broken and that it is closing all of the way. Try turning the dial on the dryer around a few times and seeing that it clicks and try it in a different cycle and see if it starts.

let me know if this still doesn't work and we can try a few other things. If it is new and you find something that is damaged then it can probably be taken back and swapped. Also, your warranty might also cover a house visit to check it out if it still won't work after doing the above which I would look into by giving the place a call.

Please let me know what you do and check and whether it helps or not and I will give you a few other things you can do, thanks

The door of the Kenmore Elite 4.3 cu. ft. Front Load Steam Washer won't open

Ouch. Well I believe cll is child lid lock or something to that effect is engaged. You will have to find something to manually turn the locking gear or if you have a manual figure out the watts/amps and use some type of power adapter similar to that to jump the lid lock to open. Turn it off and back on and it should begin working again. But either the door lock, the door close sensor, or the main board are faulty.

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button

My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

Won't start, just beeps - sounds like door switch problem others have had

The three short beeps could be part of the fault code. Check the owners manual and there are diagnostic sheets on the inside of the machine. I cannot find this fault code in my data base. What is the Model and Serial Number of your Dryer. Check the Power inside the machine at the power cord power connections. You should have 120V from both power terminals to the common terminal. There should be 240 Volts across the main power terminal. Another quest replaced the power cord. Hope to hear some good news soon.

Whirlpool Calypso Dryer Electrical Problem

Problem resolved. Although the membrane control panel passed the diagnostic test, it was defective. Probably a low voltage conductor went to ground, allowing the buttons to operate but throwing the control board into error mode.
