Is the machine equipped with a reset button? Your dryer does not have a reset button. I propose finding the two (2) home circuit breakers that are devoted to the dryer and resetting both circuit breakers by flicking them both OFF and ON 2-3 times, then testing to see if the dryer will start. If it does not, follow the same procedure again until you find the cause of the problem.
The main circuit breaker for the house is called the "main panel box." This should be located in an accessible place for when it needs to be replaced or checked. The secondary circuit breakers are called "load centers" and they control individual rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms. They can be located together inside a metal cabinet, but most often they are kept in separate boxes in different parts of the house.
If your dryer has more than one wire feeding into it, like a pair of reds or whites, these need to be connected to the correct terminal on the load center. Otherwise, you might get a lot of trouble down the road!
For any appliance with switches, buttons, or lights, there should be a diagram in the user's manual showing which switch/button operates what. Use this information to help you determine how to turn the machine on and off. For example, if the heater has two switches, one for heat and one for air conditioning, you will want to make sure that you are switching them correctly.
Many dryers have a reset button on the control panel. Allow the dryer to cool for about 10 minutes if the motor won't start. After that, press the reset button. This should restart the dryer if there are no problems with the motor, switches, or electrical system. If this doesn't work, see your owner's manual or contact an authorized service center.
Your dryer does not have a reset button. I propose finding the eight (2) home circuit breakers that are devoted to the dryer and resetting both circuit breakers by flicking them both OFF and ON 2-3 times, then testing to see if the dryer will start. And then take off the back panel.
It is not essential to reset the dryer. Replace or reset the fuse or circuit breaker if the dryer does not have heat. Disconnect the dryer's electricity, then reconnect it to complete a thorough reset. Use caution not to touch any parts of the control panel while working on the machine.
The control panel for a Whirlpool dryer is located behind the washer. It contains buttons that control the power to the heater and rotary drum as well as other functions. For example, when you open the lid of the dryer, the door will open automatically because it is controlled by the "drum cycle" button. You will also find this button under several names, such as "heater," "rotate," or "drum."
There are two types of reset buttons for a Whirlpool dryer: one for electric models and another for gas models. Both work in the same way, so we will discuss how to use them together. If you need help using either type of reset button, just ask someone at your local appliance store to help you out. They should be able to tell you exactly where to locate these buttons and how to use them.
For an electric model, the reset button is usually located on the washer itself. This means that you will need to get inside the washer to reach it.
If the dryer has to be reset just to change, pause, or alter the cycle, press "Power/Cancel" once to cancel the current cycle. Choose the new desired cycle, then any modifications and cycle settings. Then, to begin the new cycle, press "Start/Pause."
If your dryer has a simple one-button reset, it's located either in plain sight or inside the door panel. You'll need a 12V source such as a car battery for this procedure.
First, check that the button is not damaged or stuck. If it isn't working, you may have to replace the module controlling it. Next, disconnect all cables from the unit. Last, connect the cable that normally goes to the washer to the start/pause button on the control panel. You should now be able to turn the machine on by pressing this button. It will take about two minutes for the machine to run through its initial cycles before you can load your clothes.
