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 it.you 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 works.be sure to unplug dryer before doing this.check your breaker also,make sure it hasnt tripped.

Not sure on your model, but if you can remove the lower front panel(usually there are three screws right at the bottom) Just behind the front plastic panel the filter is in, there is a white thernal fuse about one inch long with two wires attached to it. If this opened, the dryer went dead. It opens because there usually is a restriction in the venting(lots of lint) and it needs service. Can also open from a grounded element, bad thermistor or thermostat

By the way the thermistor is usually right next to the thermal fuse, also has two wires to it, more square looking usually, similar size.......
This is for an electric model, the second letter of yours is E for electric...
This is the most common problem, not the only one.. There is another thermal fuse on the element itself, and other things you cant find unless you have a meter, you can take the fuse to a store to test it.......

Turn off the electricity. next remove the 2 top hex screws on the back of the unit. then go to the front of the unit and take your palms of your hands and rrest them on top of the unit and push hard to the back. the top needs to slide about and inch to the back and then you can lift the top off. Now you have access to all the electrical components. If this helped , please rate this answer.

My whirlpoolduet dryer is on control lock how do I unlock it model # gew9200lw1


Hello & Welcome to FixYa


This is a common issue with Whirlpool Duet however, your whirlpool duet needs a reset to resolve the control lock problem. Press and hold the END OF CYCLE/CYCLE SIGNAL button for 15 seconds to reset the control. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool duet dryer model # GEW9200LW1, when powering up goes directly to touch up, and will not start. thermal fuse ok


Dirty moisture sensing strips? Have you tried cleaning them with windex?e03f8f0.jpg

Number 34 these measure resistance by picking up wetness from the clothes. Dryer sheets can coat these with a non penatrable film which fools the brain into thinking them clothes is dry so it moves towards the cooldown mode and shuts off with wet clothes. Clean them sensor strips real good and party on!

Replace heating element for Duet Dryer GEW9200LW1


First disconnect the power to the dryer by unplugging it from the wall. Then remove the 3 screws on the lower panel of the dryer. This should expose the heating element in a metal housing on the right side of the dryer. Disconnect the 2 wires going to the heating element and slide it out of the housing. The heating element part number is 3387747.

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 - Working but no heat


i need help fixing my 5 year old dryer. whirlpool duet model GEW9200LW1. I have replaced the thermistor. I tested (with an ohm meter) the heating coil, thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, & heating element and they were all fine. I replaced the electronic control assembly and the user interface. THE DRYER STILL WONT HEAT.
Then it occurred to me that the sensor may not allow the dryer to heat if its not sensing wet. Could this be true? Have I been trouble shooting this wrong?
Help me.
