I have a whirlpool duet dryer model number is XXXXX The dryer turns on and lights up but will not run when you push the on button you hear a slight click and then the sensor light illuminates I had a service man come out and he is saying that my main control board is bad and it will cost 300 dollars for the part, obviously more with labor. I have already paid a 69.99 dollar service call What do you think and can you tell me the exact cost of that part
holding the end of cycle button to unlock and had a repair man here

all i have received is a bunch of technical mumbor jumbo that i can try to sort through is there such thing as a main control board and most importantly I need to know what the cost of one is
Yes there is a main control board on these units. The tech sheet I linked you to has diagnostic information that will help you determine if it is indeed the control board or something else (possibly a bad motor) that is the problem. One moment and I will get you the price information for the control board.
all i have received from you is a bunch of technical pages that i do not have time to do at the moment I really wanted to know if there is such a part called the main control board and if it was bad would anything light up on the dryer also what is the cost of a main controll board for this particular model
Getting this information now. Please stand by.
could it just be a sensor fuse
Please click here to order the new control board. $181.94 +S&H
I am sorry but these units do not have a fuse that would cause the problem you have. there is a thermal fuse but the unit would still run. It just wouldnt heat up.
this is the one that fits my model #? what do you suggest i do with the service repair man who is telling me that piece costs 300
The service person is marking the price of the board up. This is a common practice. You can order the board yourself but you are taking a big chance if this is not the problem. That is why I provided you with the diagnostics information. I highly recommend that you run the diagnostics before you purchase such an expensive (non returnable) part.
Yes this is the one for your particular model.
thank you for everything
You are welcome. =)
