Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Duet dryer problem - GEW925PWO control panels do not automatically set. When they do give lights and time like they are accepting, they are not matching up with what the control is set on. The whole left side panel lights do not work, heavy duty, normal, bulky, casual, delicate. I have to manually set the dryer each time I want to use it.

Hi The dryer timer, located in back of the control panel, controls several things: the drying time of the clothes in the drum, the flow of electricity to the heating element, and the flow of power to the timer motor and the drum motor in the dryer cabinet. Timers are driven by synchronous motors. Although the contact part of the timer can be cleaned and adjusted on some dryers, this is a job for a professional repair person. Timer motor repairs should also be handled by a professional, but you can replace a faulty timer yourself. Here's how to test and replace a dryer timer:
Step 1: To access the timer, remove the front of the control panel. On some dryers, the timer can be removed without removing the panel. In either case, pull the timer knob off the shaft and slip off the pointer. The pointer is usually keyed to the shaft by two flat surfaces to keep the pointer from slipping when it's turned.
Step 2: Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Turn the timer to the NORMAL DRY setting and disconnect one of the timer power leads. Some timers may have several wires connected to them: The power leads are usually larger than the other wires, and this size difference can be spotted under close examination. Clip one probe of the meter to each timer terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the needle jumps to a high reading, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the timer with a new one of the same size and type.
Step 3: To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer close to the old one, especially if there are several wires to be changed. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram detailing the proper connections. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for accuracy.

Why do the Automatic cycles on my Whirlpool Duet Electric Dryer not always work?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

I have a Whirlpool electric dryer, it is a Duet with a model # of: GEW9250PW1. When I try to select the the "normal" setting on the automatic side, it lights up the delicate light and has the...


Is the selector knob loose on the stem? Look on the knob to see if there is a set screw of some sort that you can tighten to set it where it belongs, it just seems it's loose and isn't pointing to where it should. Let me know if this works or not,
Please rate and comment, Thank you,

Control panel not working


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. To reset the dryer you’ll need to press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 10-15 seconds. If still the issue is not resolved then unfortunately you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

I have a Whirlpool Duet Dryer. It turns on sensor light is on but will not run.


Your thermal limit is located here6fe0fd9.jpg1006c0d.jpg
To get to it unplug the machine. Remove the top. Push in on the release tabs on the inside of the control and remove it. Unplug the control quick connect and set it to the side. Get the brace off. Get the control board panel out yer way. Open the door and remove the screws. Take the bottom panel off and the front panel then the drum out. Give it a good hoovering all over and replace the thermal fuse.

Control panel


I was able to fix our problem by running through the control panel diagnostics as outlined in the repair manual, which I found here:

All the diagnostic steps were successful and after I had worked through the list I was able to use the Automatic Cycles. Hope this helps!
