Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Thank you !

The F-25 is a shorted inlet thermistor.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it ?

Good morning....
I have since discovered that the Start button is broken inside under the user interface control board. It's the dark gray plastic piece that the control board sits in. I will try gluing the broken plastic piece, but in the meantime, can you tell me what part to order to replace that dark gray plastic section that has the plastic contact for the start button?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

That is the control board assembly. the user interface and control board are one assembly.

I'm back again...the control board assembly was back ordered, but has finally arrived.
I'm struggling; however, to get the existing assembly removed. Have been able to get the white cover and circuit board removed from the dryer, but the dark gray piece (the part with the broken plastic that is "behind" the power switch) is not budging. Any guidance on how to remove that?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

ok it just has friction snaps that hold it in place three on top ,three on bottom and one one each end . just unclip on end then work your way on each side to the other end un mounting the part.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can move those tabs, but even with them unclipped the gray plastic doesn't budge. It's like the gray piece is glued to the front panel or needs to come out the front as it appears to be larger than the white plastic surrounding it. I have a similiar issue as what is documented in this thread (http://my.justanswer.com/question/guest/bbb6e20dc1d945d8af78d8b2f8e43f29) but this person gives up on it online. Not sure how to proceed to get this old piece out to be able to replace the whole assembly. Unfortunately, I didn't need a new circuit board it's just this gray plastic that's broken but seems immovable. Any other thoughts?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Have you removed the know yet from the front of the unit?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i think you mean knob? and yes, the knob is off -- i've actually taken circuit board out so the whole knob assembly is out and the knob is off the front. just have the shell (dark gray plastic) remaining. working on sending a pict now
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 years ago

I can see the tabs holding the gray part in place.

If you can not get it apart I can only suggest calling in an appliance tech or returning the part and order the entire console assembly
