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.......

If you electronic display is still working, however, the dryer doesn't want to start spinning and drying, then there is a set of instructions available at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com for this problem. Specifically at: http://www.anyonecanfixit.com/household.htm

It's a quick and easy fix.

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.

Hi stevewillis1,

Please look at this Service Manual for your machine: LINK

It appears your fuse has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

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.

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

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.

Can the Whirlpool Duets stack?


The simple, short answer is yes, the Whirlpool Duet washer and dryers can be stacked. You'll need to check with the Whirlpool folks to see if you'll need a stacking kit, or if they are ready to go with what you already have.

The key to stacking these Duet laundry pairs, is to have both the washer and dryer model numbers when you contact Whirlpool, so they can provide you with the stacking kit needed to mount the dryer on top of the washer. You can also check the Whirlpool web site to get a good idea of how much space is needed for a stacked set. Here's the link for the space checker, just look under the Guides and Tools on the left side and click on the Laundry Space Sizer to see what's needed.

http://www.whirlpool.com/catalog/category.jsp?cat=115

You can also call Whirlpool at (866) 698-2538 and speak to them about your particular washer and dryer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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

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