Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My GEW9250 quit working at all.

I used to be able to unplug it for awhile, and it would work again. Now, nothing works but the inside light. I can't get to the electrical components in the front to see if anything obvious is wrong. HOW DO I GET THE TOP FRONT CONTROL PANEL OFF? I've tried 3 times, and see no visable way to remove it. Please help.

    I received some help on my problem with the GEW9250 dryer from jcas1--I was at last able to access the controls. However, everything is still a mystery. By using the diagnostic test [more time, less time, more time, less time in 5 seconds], it came up that everything was alright. After doing this, the dryer worked fine. However, when I came home today the dryer control lock button was beeping on and off as before. Does this mean I have to use the diagnostic test every time I want to use the dryer? And why did this cause it to work?

FIRST SHUT OFF THE POWER..To remove the top cover, look in back for 2 or 3 torqs screws securing the rear of the top panel, slide the top back to disengage. Remove the 3 or 4 screws holding the sheet metal cover to the ERC on the right side. Move it out of the way. Disconnect the ribbon connector from the user interface to the ERC, locate 4 phillips, two on each side of the back of the front panel... My customer's machine would lock up, same as yours. First I replaced the ERC, no change. Then I replaced the user interface. Ran one or two loads, then locked up. So, I replaced both the ERC and the UI, ran 2 loads and quit again. I gave up and gave her her money back.. JCAS

My Goodman AC is model WMC24-1. Two years ago it quit responding to the remote control. We bought a replacement B1100108. That worked...for awhile.

Make sure the sun is not directly on the unit and nothing is blocking the unit. for once in awhile if the sun hits it just right when you try to use the remote it will not work.that seems to me what is wrong for spring time the sun is real low

Whirlpool Duet gew9250 - Control Lock

The most common reason for this type of complaint would be a failure in the user interface board (UI), if the portion of the board has a short circuit across the lock trails it will demonstrate this symptom.

The fix would be to have the UI replaced. Part number is
8558753 Platinum
8558755 Biscuit
8558756 Pewter

The cost for the part alone is around $160.00 plus labor to install.

I know this is not good news. sorry....

There is a model number inside the door frame. If you would post that it would be a big help. What you are describing is troubling though and could be the control board.
