Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
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.
