Customer Question

Hi, WD1457RD. Washes on all cycles fine. Dryer does not work. No error codes showing. The illuminated dryer settings knob ring is never illuminated. In Diagnostic mode, it is illuminated so no problem with the indicators themselves. All diagnostic functions are OK, but sadly there are no diagnostics for the dryer. Any ideas? I'll give anything a shot!

The first thing to check is the operation of the door safety interlock switch. Try starting the dryer cycle, while pushing in on the door edge opposite the hinges. Please let me know the result.
