Found the culprit. The thermal fuse was blown. Had no conductivity with ohm meter so I placed a jumper around it and presto dryer runs. Cleaned the exhaust and fan but found no blockage and really was not that bad. Hoping maybe just a weak part. The model on the Whirlpool Duet electric dryer is GEW9250PWL I believe the the last three are just the color. The part number on the Thermal Fuse is #3392519. This is easy to get to through the front panel just below the load door. Hope this helps some else out.

SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool Duet

try running a diagnostic on the dryer. You do this by making sure the power is off. Then push one of the sensor buttons (not the pause/cancel)
hold for 3 sec.
let go for 3 sec.
hold for 3 sec.
let go for 3 sec.
hold for 3 sec.
the lights will come on and 88 will show in the LED window. Then it should give you a F code.This website has a list of the codes and other instructions. http://fixitnow.com/wp/2007/06/19/whirlpool-duet-sport-dryer-diagnostics-and-fault-codes/
I ran the Diagnostic and it reset my machine and now runs fine. ( I had F-02) stuck button.
hope this helps

My whirlpool duet electric dryer electrical systems and heat work fine, but drum won't turn and belt is in tact.


Check the motor capacitor,sometimes the capacitor could be faulty or the motor is faulty or check if the motor is receiving power,if it's receiving power try to replace the capacitor if the is any in the system,if still it's not working then the motor could be burnt.

Also check weather the timer is perfecty.

Whirl pool duet dryer not drying clothes


Inside the door under the filter housing is 2 strips that sense wetness. If they have dryer sheet goop on them they won't sense moisture. the dryer will therefore thank them clothes is dry. Clean them sensors with windex and party on!
