Need to repaint bubbled and peeling paint on top of dryer
The choice is yours. Money often motivates these decisions. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the top panel price is roughly $108 to $160 depending on the color you need. White or Bisquit is the cheapest, while Pewter is the most expensive. If you wish to replace it, appliancepartspros.com carries it for the cheapest price.
If you wish to paint it, remove the panel from the dryer first by locating and removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This will allow you to work on it in a more convenient location and avoid any overspray from paint on your appliance. Make sure you clean the surface throughly to remove anything that may have caused the paint to bubble and peel in the first place (Ospho is commonly used to clean metal surfaces in preparation for painting - clean AFTER you sand). I would sand with a fine grit sand paper or emery cloth to ensure you don't leave any surface scratches. Prime the entire panel to provide a good surface for the new paint to adhere to. Once the primer is dry, apply a couple of good coats of appliance paint. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet gas dryer is not working. The
check the door switch,if this switch is bad dryer wont work,this is a spdt type switch as it runs the drum light when doors open and lets machine start and operate with door closed
Power Button will not turn on.
Verify proper line voltage is present at the outlet. This will require the use of a voltage meter. If not properly trained, I would consult an electrician to verify the voltage.
Part of the troubleshooting proceedure requires the technician to verify that the applience is receiving the required supply power.
This has to be verified at the outlet to eliminate the possibility of a bad breaker or bad connection inside the breaker panel or outlet box.
Hope this helps in finding the solution to your problem..
Thanks and good luck..
