Question about Whirlpool WGD9200S Gas Dryer

Open Question

Wgd9200s.. Moisture detector ends cycle too early

The normal cycle should run 48 minutes, but ends up getting shortened to 22 minutes because the machine determines that the load is dryer than it is.  Error code P39.  I think it was a power outage, but am not sure.  I am going to unplug for a minute and then repower.  Otherwise, do I need to run more diagnostics?

SOURCE: Time skips from 18 minutes to 6 minutes on automatic mode

It is the moisture sensor system, it is not sensing the wet clothes. Open the door, inside you should see a part with 2 metal bars that is around 3 inches long, clean these bars with a mult purpose cleaner. Sometimes fabric softner sheets and detergent builds up on this so that the machine cannot sense the moisture. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: e-2 error code on whirlpool duet dryer

“E2” flashes if the thermistor has shorted.

The thermistor monitors the exhaust temperature
and cycles the high-limit thermostat on
and off to maintain the desired temperature.
1. Turn the dryer off but keep the electrical
supply connected.
2. Make sure that the dryer is empty and that
the lint screen is clean.
3. Close the dryer door.
4. Select Heavy Duty, Timed Dry, More Time
or Less Time, End of Cycle Signal (Louder)
and Start.
5. If error codes E1 or E2 flash on the display
after 1 minute and the dryer turns off,
the thermistor, or the wire harness, is either
shorted or open. Check the wire connections
at the thermistor or the machine
control electronics board. If wiring checks
okay, replace the thermistor.
6. If the dryer seems to operate normally, remove
the exhaust vent and start the dryer.
7. Select the desired temperature cycle to be
tested, and select 20 minutes of Timed Dry
heat using the More Time or Less Time
pushbuttons.

SOURCE: Dryer turns off in 10 minutes.

To check the moisture sensors. Make sure the dyer is plugged in and all controls are set to off. Next to get into the diagnostic mode press more time, less time, more time, less time, all within 5 seconds. Now all indecator lights on the console are lit up with 88 in the " time remaining" display, if the test mode has been entered. Now this how to check the moisture sensors. Open the dryer door. You may hear a beep sound and the software revision number will be displayed on the console. If this happens there is a short in the moisture sensor system and the moisture sensors need to be checked and probably replaced. If this doesn`t happen,locate the moisture sensors on the face of the lintscreen housing and lay a wet cloth or towell across them. You should hear a beep and the software number will be diplayed on the console. If this happens then the moisture sensors have past the test and your problem is even deaper into the electronics and may reqiure a technician to trace this problem down.I hope this has helped you.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again

This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.

WHY IS MY LG GAS DRYER NOT ADVANCING TO COOL DOWN CYCLE?


If its a newer dryer, they have moisture sensors that determine if it should shut down early or stay on longer if needed. Let it run the extra time and see what happens. If it keeps doing it, then the sensor is defective.

Why does my whirlpool senseon dryer start when i disconnect the thermistor wire but then shuts off after a minute?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

Dryer shuts off after 5 seconds then beeps 3 times


Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Electric creda excel tumble dryer, not heating up, only cold air, which part is required?


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

HiMy name is Ray and i would like to increase the drying time on a maytag commercial dyer model lde19cs


i just got off the phone with Maytag Commercial Laundry customer service, because i needed to know how to adjust the run times on this dryer model. here is what i learned:

there are slots in the timing cam into which fit a white pin for adjusting the run time. the letter settings on the cam are set at 12 minutes apart:
E = 12 minutes
D = 24 minutes
C = 36 minutes
B = 48 minutes
A = 60 minutes

if your dryer is running 48 minutes, that pin is likely in the 'B' slot. remove the pin. the built-in stop at the 'A' position is for 60 minutes.

Whirlpool model # lgr7646ez3


Here are a list of causes that may contribute to this lack of sufficient drying.


CAUSE
• Lint screen is clogged with lint.
• Restricted air movement.
Exhaust vent or outside
exhaust hood is clogged with
lint.
• Exhaust vent is crushed or
kinked.
• One fuse is blown or circuit
breaker is tripped. The dryer
will appear to operate, but you
will not get any heat.
• Cycle Control knob or temperature
selector is set on air dry.
• Load not contacting the sensor
strips and automatic cycle
ending early.
• Fabric softener sheets blocking
exhaust grill.
• Dryer located in room with
temperature below 45ºF (7ºC).
• Large amount of moisture in
the load.
• Cold rinse water used.
• Load too large and bulky to
dry quickly.


Here are the solutions to combat the issues.


SOLUTION
• Clean lint screen.
• Run dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold hand under
outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you
do not feel air moving, clean exhaust system of lint
or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible
metal vent.
• Replace with heavy metal or flexible metal vent

• Replace fuse or reset breaker.
• Select the right cycle and temperature for the types
of garments being dried.
• Level dryer.
• Use only one softener sheet per load and only use
it once.
• Move dryer to a location with temperatures above
45ºF (7ºC).
• Expect longer dry times with items that hold more
moisture (cottons).
• Expect longer dry times.
• Separate load to tumble freely.

This will help you fix this problem. i suspect an exhaust obstruction.

Error E1


dear customer,
most of the time the timers of dryers aren't faulty even though the dryer doesn't run properly in timmed mode. dryer timers have small motors on the back. The motor rotates gears and cams that open and close switch contacts that control the loads in your dryer. A load is something that does work like a motor, heater, light bulb or end of the cycle buzzer. When the timer is manufactured the amount of time each set of contacts will be closed is built in by the timer cams and gears.so i recommend yu to check the follwoing
  • Test the moisture sensor
  • Test the thermostats
  • Test the heating element
  • and finally the timer device.
hope you find this useful. thank you.
