Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Had been using my dryer all day and on one of the last loads it just stopped heating so now I have wet clothes. The dryer kept running through the cycle, the time kept going down and everything else seemed to be working fine. Not sure of the model as I can't find that any place and I think it is like 3-4 years old

Most likely your problem isn't the vent as you were using it all day. Without hooking up a volt meter to the parts on the dryer though it is hard to determine. Most likely though the problem is the thermal fuse. It's common for this to go out on electric dryers and it is cheap and easy to repair. If the thermal fuse goes out then the heating element won't stay on for more then a second or two. This can go bad for a number of reasons but usually happens because your vents aren't allowing enough air to exit. It's probably not to stopped up but it may be enough to have caused this to happen. The thermal fuse is located usually near the heating element housing and is a small looking fuse with two different colored wires attached to it. It is no more than an inch or so long and is fairly skinny. There is a wire diagram located behind the control panel backing. Just remove the few screws and you will see it. Just make sure to put it back for any techs that ever come out to service it. You can get a thermal fuse at any local appliance repair store for around 15 dollars and it only takes about 15 minutes to fix it. I hope this information helps you out and if you have any other questions let me know. Good luck.

We have a frigidaire infiniti dryer AEQ6500CFGO it runs for about ten minutes an shuts off, lights on right hand side blinking and no heat! Ive replaced main board and same problem? Help plz! :)


Check the airflow, one way to do this is unhook the dryer from the ductwork and let it run with a wet load of clothes to see if it stops. If it does not then the issue is lack of airflow because of the ductwork. If it does stop then the issue is because of overheating somewhere else.

Maytag neptune dryer doesnt heat


On the housing the element mounts in is a couple of safetys The smaller one is rated for 300f and the bigger one is rated for 250f. If the smaller one is tripped obviously you replace them both, making sure the vent to outside is clear. Them fuses blow or trip because of air restrictions.

My daughter in put a load of wet clothes (not completely finished spin cycle). Now dryer doesn't heat the clothes but seems to have all other functions.


Try running the dryer empty to see if the elements are heating. With the weight of wet clothes it is possible to trip the overloads.

Wed9200sq0 heats, tumbles but does not dry at any heat setting


You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Will not heat


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
