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

Whirlpool Cabrio dryer won't start - the sensing light stays on


An EXTREMELY helpful technical guide is folded inside the console housing.
WARNING: It is for appliance techs, DO NOT do the voltage/resistance checks if you are not well-versed in troubleshooting appliances! BUT, it does include putting the dryer in diagnostics mode and checking the sensors.
Post back any error codes you may get.
