Customer Question

Hello, our whirlpool tumble dryer was working fine last week, but today it's not. When I close the door to run the programme, it's turning the power supply off!

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - could you let me have the product code and model number please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hello, it's a Whirpool, Ultimate care II,
I don't know the product code, as wouldn't know where to find it!
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
It will be on a label usually in the door recess, I'm afraid the infomation so far only covers a range not a model

Hello, sorry, can't find a number, have looked inside door & behind the top switch panel, but have only found electrical shock warning labels. So not sure how to help!

Hello Ian, just checking if you are still on line?
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK can I assume it is an american style dryer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it is.
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK can you use any electrical test equipment? - Basically, your fault is likely to be with the heater assembly or the motor. Since I don't have you specific model - is it possible to run the dryer without heat?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Mmm I don't have any electrical test equipment, but a/my builder does, he'll be here tomorrow. But I can't start it at all, with or without heat!

Hello, Ian, I'm going out now, so not about till tomorrow!
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK catch up with you tomorrow - take care.
