Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
I don't know if it's a blown fuse or what. The dryer will allow me to pick a setting, shows the minutes but when I press start it beeps several times,(I think 3), the the sensing light is lit and it just sits there.If this is a fuse, where is it and can I replace it myself? Thank you!
Unplug the unit and take the back off. Down towards the bottom, near the exhaust connection, you will find a small, white thin plastic part with 2 blue wires connected to it. Remove the wires, put them together, wrap with electrical tape, and then plug the dryer in and see if it runs then

First you need to take off the bottom panel, using a 1/4 ” socket to remove the two screws that are on the bottom front corners of the dryer. I propped it up on some 2×6’s to get easier access to the screws and make it easier to slide the bottom panel off. There is a thermal fuse that shorts out if the dryer outflow is too hot. This prevents you from destroying larger more expensive components, and all you have to do is buy a $10 fuse. The fuse is located behind the blower casing, which you can reach around if you take off the bottom panel. It is a white flat plastic piece, about 1×1′, with two connectors coming out of it. It is pretty well centered in the dryer by the blower. To check if it is good, check it’s resistance after unplugging it from the system. It should be darn near zero. If it is open (infinite resistance), you have melted the fuse and need to buy a new one. Just take it out with a ratchet and don’t lose the screws. Make sure you clean out your dryer vent, as restricted flow because of lint is generally the cause of overheating. also check your wires where your cord hooks up to the dryer you might have a burnt wire only getting 110v
