Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
The following link will give you some additional advice on how to troubleshoot a dryer:
Read through the link provided, thoroughly. It does cover many common dryer problems and how to diagnose them.
You know at this point that have power to the unit, because the drum light is working. Now...with the door open, does the light go out when you push the door switch in by hand? Is that how you determined the switch to be good? If the light does not go off, the switch may not be working properly and the dryer will not start. Another easy item to check is the thermal FUSE. The fuse is located behind the lower panel under the door. It is a white plastic component mounted to the top of air blower housing right under the drum in the front. There should be two wires going to it. If the thermal fuse is good, it should read a short (or close to zero ohms). These two first items I mention will kill a dryer from starting and are the most common problems to start with. Read through the section "Dryer Does Not Run at All" and let me know if require further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
