Whirlpool Duet Model GEW9200LW1 Dryer

Hello, I have a dryer that is not working. Yesterday we used the dryer without problem and then all of a sudden we started having a problem. You can put the controls on as normal and select the type of cycle and the time for that particular cycle is shown on the control display. When you push the cycle start the time shown changes to "--" and the cycle does not start as normal. When you release the cycle start button it shows the original cycle time for the cycle that was requested. Note - The dryer was working fine yesterday. It is about 4 years old and we have not had problems with it previously. No other symptoms were noticed leading to this problem. I hope you can offer some advise here. I could not find any service manuals online though I was able to find one for the washer. I am somewhat capable of doing repairs myself and am looking for advise as to what the problem is, how to fix it, possibly parts that need to be changes, or whatever advise you can provide. We are hoping for a sunny day to hang out clothes to get us by for now! lol I look forward to your response. Regards, William Laird Edmonton, KY

Re: Whirlpool Duet Model GEW9200LW1 Dryer

William, start with the simple things first. Make sure the control is not locked by pressing and holding the end of cycle signal for 3 seconds. This will lock and unlock the controls. If that is in order the next step would be the door switch. By pressing in this order: more time, less time, more time, less time you will enter the diag mode and all the lights should light up. Open the door and you should hear a beep and see a code, such as OE,1E,2E etc. If no beep is heard you could have an issue here. You can also check this at the board. You have to remove the top cover by removing the 3 screws in back. Slide the top off toward the back. The board is on the left. With the power disconnected ohm out P1-2 (white wire) and P1-3 (blue wire). With the door closed you should read continuity. Start with this first and post back...Catriver.

Re: Whirlpool Duet Model GEW9200LW1 Dryer

We have the same issue as described above by William. Controls appear normal, but when "Start" burton is held like normal to start a cycle "--" is displayed and the machine does not start. The machine operates properly throughout the diagnostic mode without error codes etc., and the machine runs when start is pressed while in the diagnostic mode. The door switch tests OK. The Moisture Sensor tests OK.
We have replaced the Machine Control Electronics with a refurbished unit in a failed effort to jump ahead, and while the Thermal Fuse tested OK, it has also been replaced. The machine's condition is unchanged.
We'll continue with Belt Switch tests, etc.
Perhaps someone has additional thoughts. If so, thank you in advance. We'll post progress.
Best Regards,

Gew9200lw1 whirlpool dryer turns on, spins but doesn't heat up

hello, this is Mike. If your dryer turns on, tumbles, but there's no heat, I would bet that your heating element is toast. If you can access the terminals to the heating element, you can test them for continuity using a simple inexpensive tester. No continuity means they need to be replaced. If you would like some assistance with how to go about this and possibly fix the problem yourself, feel free to contact me. I would be happy to help you. thanks

Your whirlpool duet dryer needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Controls locked

I'm not familiar with the specifics of this machine, but the bezel and Console Electronics (the subassembly clipped to the bezel that holds the circuit boards and buttons) on our Whirlpool GEW9200LW1 is a poor fit, and pressure on the bezel itself can activate the End of Cycle button, and subsequently lock the controls.

Whirpool Duet Washer Model GHW9150PW1 Control Locked

I had the same exact problem, the answer is in the User's Manual for this model Dryer, also here: The Users Manual reads: "TO UNLOCK": Press and hold the END OF CYCLE button for 3 seconds to turn this feature off. I did this and it worked perfectly the first time! My first load is drying now after months of being without the dryer (too busy to investigate!). Good luck.

The manufactured date is deterimed by the SERIAL NUMBER on these appliances. The following link explains how to determine the age of Whirlpool manufactured appliances:

The first two NUMBERS of the serial number determines the week it was manufactured. The last digit before the numbers, determines the year. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The serial number criteria is for all appliances manufactured by Whirlpool. Your washer and dryer will use the same format.

Whirlpool GEW9200LW1 won't run

Could be that the belt has broken and triped the belt safty switch. If you reach into the dryer and rotate the drum in a clock wise rotation and it moves extreamly freely. It is probably the belt.

Whirlpool duet dryer model # GEW9200LW1 suddenly quit working. We think it is the fuses, where do we find them and how do we check to see if they are good?

you will need an OHM meter to check continuity. or you can jump the wires but you must replace a bad one for its a huge safety hazzard. (you can slide the 2 terminals together if you have them upsidedown from each other.

the thermal fuse is located right on top of the blower housing.
to get to it remove the lower pannel 3 1/4 inch screews you will see 2 wires going into a white plastic almost football looking peice ontop of the blower housing. it is also held in with 2 1/4 inch screews. thats the termal fuse if nothing turns on or work thats the most common problem. if you jump it and the dryer works then replace the t-fuse Part # 3392519 $20.95

Whirlpool duet dryer model # GEW9200LW1 suddenly quit working. We want to check the fuses but don't know where they are or how to check to see if they are working

should be located behind the kick plate on blower housing.the fus is a white fuse with a black strip down the middle and two wires going to can use a set of meters that check for continuity to the fuse.or put wire ends together and wrap with electrical tape plug in dryer ad see if it sure to unplug dryer before doing this.check your breaker also,make sure it hasnt tripped.

To be sure the element is not faulty, you need to have it tested for continuity, and for an earth fault.
