I'm working on my Whirlpool dryer. Which way do the top locks face?
Answer Hello Scott,
In reference to the bottom most part or ends of the metal, the long side goes to the front of the machine.
My dryer will not turn on at all. The door will not close completely. Could this be the problem?
Answer Hello Margaret. Yes, if the door switch is not closing, the dryer will not run. You need to repair the door on the unit.
HOW DO I GET TO THE DOOR SWITCH. DOES THE TOP COVER JUST POP OFF ?
Answer Hello Tom. You will remove the lint filter and the screws under it. Then release the clips in the front and raise the dryer top. Now you can access and replace the door switch assembly 3406107. Hope this helps.
I have to pull up on the dryer door before the dryer will start - how do I fix this
Answer Hello Judy. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the door switch 3406107 may be bad and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
