I have a Duet Sport Whirpool dryer. I loaded the clothes into the dryer & set the operating information, all the green lights came on & the time set but when I pushed the start button I was getting signal without starting, I check the door to make sure it was closed properly but still there was no operation. I tried several times to get operation but noting worked. Today I tried again & the dryer worked fine. I'm not sure if there is a problem now, I would appreciate any advice you my have. Thank you, Mike
ANSWER Hello Mike,
This sounds like you may have a poor electrical connection. This can be any connection inside the unit. It can also be the beginning of a board or component failure. I would use the unit as usual until the problem occurs again. At this point, I would open the unit and, one at a time, dis-connect and re-connect each connector to the control board. This will many times correct an issue of this nature. If it doesn't, pull the tech sheet and put the unit through a self-diagnostic cycle and pull any fault codes. The tech sheet is usually behind the kick panel.
