Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Whirlpool Duet GEW9250PW1 intermittent

My whirlpool dryer has started to run erratically.
At times I see a dim light in the Damp Status, Bulky Items Auto Cycle, and Extra Low Temp and the dryer will not start even though the light inside still works. Other times I see the control lock light lit (brightly). And sometimes if I move the dryer or unplug it and then plug it back in the dryer will work (although the three lights above are dimly lit even if they aren't the modes selected). I know it's not the control panel since it performs the same with both an old control panel and a new one. Any suggestions?

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Gas duet. Mod: GGW9250PWO Ser: MR3604435. Front panel under Status: "Control Locked" light is lit..nothing else works, including Control On button. Dead. Can the dryer be reset??


is the other lights DIM(partially lit)?
If so it could be one of the following.
1.) Intermittent ribbon cables between the control board and the Interface board (one with the buttons) Reseat all four cables.
2.) faulty control board.
3.) faulty Input board.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes


there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace
