How do you fix a Whirlpool dryer error yourself?

If your Whirlpool dryer is malfunctioning, you don't have to call a technician right away. Here, you can read what each Whirlpool dryer error code means and what to do in the case of a malfunction. For example when you see an error code and the lint trap is full.

If your Whirlpool dryer shows a light with an exclamation mark, this can have different causes:

Check if the water reservoir is full. Is this the case? Empty it. If the condenser is dirty, clean it. Make sure you empty the lint trap after every dryer cycle.
