Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Whirlpool duet dryer will no start...the "sensing" light comes on when you hit start; it makes the click noise in the door when you hit start, it counts down, but it does not tumble or anything

We bought this duet dryer about a year ago...it has only been used for about 9 months though. It was in the middle of drying clothes yesterday when I quit. I came in to check on them and they were still damp so I tried to turn it back on and it wouldn't. The lights come on and when you hit start, the "sensing' light comes on and the door makes the "click" noise it usually does, but the dryer does not go. The counter counts down. I have reset the breakers.

    I have a Whirlpool Duet Dryer model GEW9250PLO. Same thing. It will
    just start beeping indiscriminately. It started by beeping and locking
    up and then the lights would all go dim and unusual. I investigated,
    cleaned out the lint path with a vacuum, and upon further scrutiny, I
    did notice that the vent hose came off the exterior vent and I
    reattached that. Then I unplugged the dryer, and reset the control
    button. Now, it seems to not want to work during the automatic cycle.
    As stated above, it beeps strangely and will lock control while
    drying......what is wrong? Any advice appreciated.

You need to listen for the motor working ? Open the dryer door hold the door switch in and start the dryer . A buzzing sound may indicate a bad motor. If you hear a slight spinning noise ,it may just be the belt.
