Customer Question
We just bought a...

We just bought a used Whirlpool Cabrio washer/dryer. The dryer worked when FIRST plugged in and for about 20 minutes with a small load of sheets and pillow cases. It then powered off completely and will not power back on. We've checked the fuses, unplugged/plugged back in, everything we could think of - but it will still not power back on.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Cabrio - big, grey/steel color, steam option

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Sorry, I can't find the paperwork on it. I think it's still in my daughter's car

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Debends on if it's an easy fix. A fuse in the dryer? Something overheated or burned out after that first load? Can we diagnose it ourselves?
