Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Lights on but no one's home.

A soccer pad somehow got stuck between the wall and drum. Now the lights light up and control system appears to be working but drum will not start spinning. I do not hear a motor turning so I do not think there is a drive system problem but possibly the motor????

Is there a fuse that protects the motor in such cases or a thermal overload sensor?

I have tested the wall socket and have 210VAC.

Thank you.

    Nevermind, I let the system sit unplugger for 15 mins. and now runs fine. There must be a Thermal circuit that needed to reset.

Light inside works no power to panel


I didn't READ any fault in the machine?! It is "just" the Light remains on? Typically, when the dryer ends it's cycle as a safety feature the light will remain in the ON position for a brief period of time. The reason you get no working functions is because the safety feature is disallowing any unauthorized entry in the drum (Kids). The feature usually can be shut off by reading the owners manual. It can not be reset by unplugging the machine! That is the default setting

looks like you have a problem with the touch pad,abutton could be stuck or not responding,you can try unplugging it,get to the computer board and unplug the ribbon from the touch pad,reconnect it and try it,this sometimes resets the touch pad,if it doesn't you'll need to replace the touch pad.

Dryer starts up then immediately stops


If control panel is working all what is needed is to monitor the voltage feed from the controller unit to the motor and if the feed voltage stops the fault is with the controller unit. If not the motor and drive must be checked, check the capacitor to the motor .

Lights once then not again


Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System glow-amin.60x20.gif (most common)
This is the most popular system currently in use and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve. What happens in this style control system is that the thermostat or electronic control supplies power to the oven ignitor and gas valve which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and allows a specific amount of current to flow to the oven valve which is in the same circuit. If the oven valve senses the proper current flow, it opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it.

Fisher Paykel ED56 auto sensor dryer - just not working!


Hi,

It might be the circuit breaker of the mains/AC line. Pls try using another outlet/source of power. Alternately, most dryers have their own circuit breaker at the back of the unit. This would appear to be a push button switch, pls try see if your unit has one and press on it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Drum light works - contol lights don't/can't start dryer.


Either the machine control, or the user interface. Further diagnosis isn't possible. I'd try the machine control first. It's just under the top panel, along the left side.
