Whirlpool electric dryer runs only when holding start switch

Hello. I have a whirlpool electric dryer (GEW9878PW0). Initially timed dry would only run for about 10 seconds, diminished to only running while holding the start switch and then stop. Next it started by itself when the timer was moved to timed mode and made a very faint beep. I removed the board and noticed a large resistor and a couple of smaller components were burned. I replaced the board. I entered diagnostic mode and all the tests ran OK however it only runs with the switched pressed. It's only a around 3 years old. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

Whirlpool model no LEB6200KQ0 will only dry on the Very Dry Cycle. I have to run on the timer dry 3 to 4 times to get the clothes dry.


Judging from the model number, this is an electric dryer. There can be several things wrong with it. I would start with the vent. Make sure it is not clogged (especially at the end) or kinked behind the dryer. Also, check your breaker. Electric dryers can run with one half of the 220v breaker tripped. Try switching the breaker to the off position and then back on. That may solve your problem, but if it returns, you will need a qualified electrician or appliance service tech to see where the problem is originating. If neither of these help, you will need a tech to see whats going on inside the dryer. hope this helps

The WHIRLPOOL TEDS840PQ0 dryer wont turn on. The


Check the house electrical panel dryer circuit breaker pair--push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If still nothing, measure the voltage across the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. It should measure: ~230 volts AC. If at or near zero, either one of the breaker pair is defective, or a wire is open from the breaker to the socket. If you read ~230 volts, then the problem is within the dryer--motor runs, but drum doesn't turn (broken belt), or motor doesn't run (bad controller, motor, door switch, start switch. Does the unit get hot? Need more help on your end.

I would suspect the timer is on it's way out the door. Do you have any areas the timer has dead spots? Check the exhaust for any plugging also.Is this only on a first time start up or is it after this dryer has been running? If after running it could be a high temp sensor, that by the time you are playing around with it, the temp has changed.

Whirlpool duet dryer will not start. Panel lights come on as usual and when press start machine clicks and will not start. Light on wet sensor lights and no drying action begins.


press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly. This is a secret test and reset for your dryers control, so please keep this between us. The whirlpool people would be heart broke if they see this posted on the web ;-) . If your dryer will still not start after this test, you may need a new control. If you need a part let me know and I can ship it right to you. Good luck and I hope this will fixYa and saves you the $400.00 it would cost for whirlpool to send a certified tech to come to your home.
