Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
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?
Press start to continue cycle or pause/cancel to clear the PF (power failure) error
Other errors are:
E1 thermistor open
E-2 thermistor shorted
E-3 stuck button/bad keyboard

Testimonial: "Thanks, so now how do I get the extended warranty plan to pay for it. They will not send someone out for squeaks and squeals. "
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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question$$##!
