The model number that you provided appears to be slightly off. I provided information based on model 417.88042700. Here is a link for the owner's manual on that model:

Owner's Manual

. The operating instructions for the control are shown in the first image below. That information may help you troubleshoot this problem. Make sure that the control lock for the key panel is not turned on. You can disable that control lock as shown in the first image below.

If that information does not help resolve this issue, then you could have a bad door switch or a problem with a number of other components in the dryer. I provided technical information in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th images below. You can try to recall any error codes using the information in that 2nd image. The third image shows a function test sequence that you may be able to run to determine the cause of your problem. The 4th image shows the wiring diagram for your dryer. You can

unplug the dryer

and check the wiring on that door switch if necessary.

These tips may help you diagnose and repair that dryer problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details and an updated model number.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link:
