WED87HEDW Whirlpool Duet Dryer Won't Turn On/Zero Power


Sep 21, 2018
Hope Mills, NC
Model Number
About a month ago I noticed my dryer was taking forever to dry clothes. Now it won't even turn on! I did check to make sure it was plugged in properly, and checked the breaker, and it was fine. Could it be a fuse? Please advise!


I found WED87HEDW0 and WED87HEDW1

About a month ago I noticed my dryer was taking forever to dry clothes

Checked the venting? Vent hood? Lint filter?

Now it won't even turn on!

A copy:

Q - My dryer is dead, what could do that ?

A- Common problems...blown house fuse/tripped breaker ( electric dryers need 2 )...loose white/neutral wire...broken belt ( on some models only )...door switch/door switch bracket...*thermal fuse open ( venting needs attention )...broken or burnt wire...timer...motor...burnt power cord/plug...start switch ( especially the ones with a built in relay switch )

* If you find a blown thermal fuse, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first.
