It won't even start back up now.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

how long later have you tried to restart it.

And if it does not restart how do you get it to start after it has shut off?

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

and it did NOT restart?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It did not restart.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so if you power the unit up right now and select any cycle and any options and press and hold the start button will it start now?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It will not start 8n any cycle.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so your post is confusing your first post was it was turning off after a few minutes so now your saying the unit will not start at all!

So if it will not start after you power it up ans select a cycle and press and hold start does the time display count down?

And of course it will take 60 seconds for the time display to change.

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok

I just now got Whirlpools site to open and see that this model does not have a time display.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

By the way, my bank account has been billed $31.00 from Just Answer. I am quite sure that I have paid for a phone call. I have a voltage meter, but I'm not sure how to use it.
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

you will need to contact Just Answer about the billing .

I as an expert never get to see your personal or billing information .

Ok well you need to test the line cord in the rear of the dryer to see if the dryer is getting voltage or not.

If it is then you will need to test the thermal fuse to see if it is open thus killing voltage for the unit to run.
