    Why Is My Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer Not Starting?

    As shared earlier, a Whirlpool Cabrio dryer won’t start because of an issue involving the power supply, machine settings, the start button, the door, or components like the start button, drive belt, and timer.

    Let’s talk about the five issues and how to troubleshoot them:

    1. Power Issue

    Without an adequate power supply, your Whirlpool Cabrio dryer won’t start. Of course, you must ensure the issue is not a power outage. If it is, you’ll have to wait unless you’ve alternative means of powering your dryer.

    But if the issue is not an outage, then it could be any of these:

    • Unplugged power cable – You must plug the dryer’s power cable into the power socket from the dryer to power it on and run it. So, if the cable is loose or just not plugged, then that’s the reason the dryer won’t start. 

    • Tripped breaker – The circuit breaker typically trips off when the Cabrio dryer overheats. That’s a precautionary measure for protecting your dryer, but since it interrupts the power supply, your dryer won’t start. 

    • Faulty power outletWhirlpool dryers work with a 240v power outlet. If that’s not the case with your wall outlet, then that’s the reason the dryer won’t start. But still, the power outlet could be defective, which you can check with a multimeter

    • Blown-up fuse – The thermal fuse may blow up during an overheating of the dryer. Once that happens, it interrupts the dryer’s power supply and prevents it from starting. 

    • Extension cord – In most cases, a dryer won’t power on when you plug it into the extension cord. You need to plug into the wall socket for maximum power delivery into the dryer.


    Consider checking the dryer’s power cable and plug it firmly into the wall outlet (avoid the extension cord). While at it, ensure the wall socket is 240v-rated. If not, you’ll need to change it.

    Check the power breaker box to see if you have a tripped breaker. If it is, reset it.

    Then use a multitester/multimeter to assess the thermal fuse’s continuity. Replace the fuse if it lacks continuity.

    2. Dryer Setting Issue

    Your Whirlpool Cabrio dryer may fail to start because of choosing the wrong setting. That includes the following four:

    • Control Lock – The control lock locks the dryer’s control panel to stop any unintentional starting of the dryer. The setting is designed to prevent kids from starting the dryer. So, if it’s active, the dryer won’t start.

    • Automatic Dry – The Automatic Dry setting estimates how long the dryer needs to dry the clothes to avoid over-drying them. Once it’s ON, it may take some time for the dryer to start. 

    • Timed Dry – This setting performs the same job as the Auto Dry setting, only that it’s not automated. You’ve to set the timer manually, but like Auto Dry, it delays the start-up by your dryer. 

    • Wrinkle Reduction – The Wrinkle reduction setting, whose role is to prevent wrinkling, can prevent the dryer from starting. 


    Since all these settings prevent your Cabrio dryer from starting, you should disable them. Start with ‘Control Lock’ and press the ‘start’ button for at least 3 seconds. Then, cancel the other settings before trying to restart your dryer. 

    3. Start Button Fault 

    You should press the start button firmly for 2-5 seconds to start the dryer. That’s more important when dealing with heavy loads. So, you can’t just tap the button and expect the dryer to start. 


    Consider pressing the dryer’s start button for 2 – 5 seconds to see if the dryer will start. 

    4. Open Door (Whirlpool Front Load Dryer Won’t Start)

    Now, if you have a front-load Cabrio dryer that won’t start, it could be because of a non-engaged door. The dryer could interpret the door as faulty even if it’s not.

    The likely reasons for that are:

    • Failing to shut the dryer door firmly – If you don’t close the dryer door firmly, the dryer won’t start. So, you’ve to check that. 

    • Obstructive/tripped clothes – If your clothes are caught between the dryer door, the dryer won’t start as the door won’t shut properly.

    • Faulty door switch – Sometimes the whirlpool dryer door won’t close, not because of not firmly shutting it or trapped clothes but a defective door switch. So, you need to test its continuity with a multimeter to see if it’s faulty. 


    Inspect the dryer door for any trapped or obstructive clothes and remove them. Then firmly press the dryer door against you to shut it properly.

    If the dryer doesn’t close, test the lid switch for continuity, as it could be faulty. If so, then you’ll have to replace it.

    5. Component Failure 

    Lastly, if you cannot find the likely cause of your non-starting dryer, the reason could be a failed component. The dryer components to quickly examine include:

    • Start button – The Whirlpool Cabrio dryer won’t start if the start switch is faulty. In that case, test its continuity with a multimeter; if it has no continuity, it’s defective. 

    • Drive belt – If the drive belt is broken, the Cabrio dryer may not start. Yes, the drive motor may run, but it’s likely to stop after some time. So, inspect the drive belt for breaks and cracks to determine if it’s faulty. 

    • Timer – The dryer’s timer could malfunction, and once it does, it prevents the dryer from starting. You can assess it with a multitester/multimeter to determine if it lacks continuity.

    • Motor – If the drive belt is faulty, the dryer may or may not start. You can know if you have a failing drive motor if it won’t turn the drive belt or make a humming sound. 

    • Control board – Though rare, a failed main control board can stop your Cabrio dryer from starting. It could be faulty. 


    Consider replacing any of the five dryer components if faulty.
