Whirlpool Dryer

6 posts in this topic

 My whirlpool duet dryer will not start. When the start button is pushed the time remaining display goes to "- -". I have tried unplugging it and turning the breaker off and then back on (Even though they are both basically the same thing), and pressing and holding the "end of cycle" button and it still won't work. Any other ideas on what it could be?

Did you ever figure out what that - - error was on your duet? I'm having the same problem and can't seem to find anything on it, and of course the wife is pissed. Somehow this must be my fault.

The problem turned out to be a shorted front panel. The repair guy had to call his parent company who in turn had to call whirlpool. Easy to replace yourself but unfortunately $315 for the part. would have been another $92 to have the repair guy come out to replace the thing so I did it myself.

Thanks! I unplugged the dryer and it now seems to be working OK, with the exception of a quiet beeping noise when it runs. Did you have the beeping noise too?

I didn't have the beeping noise. Mine simply quit working and gave me the double dash indication. I'm glad yours reset with power shut down. Mine would not.
