I have duet dryer GEW 9250PW0 with no heat. I have changed Thermister, Thermal cut off, high limit thermostat, heating element, and main board. I've check pwer cord and oulet and they check fine

You didn't mention checking the "cycling thermostat".
The two large terminals will be closed, and the two small ones should ohm out around 250 ohms. You also need to check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. You could have one of the two breakers thrown. Here is the cycling thermostat in case you find it bad.
Keep me posted on your findings.

Dryer runs, no heat, element OK 10.5ohm, Hi limit thermostat .8 ohm, next one is thermal cutoff or operating thermostat, open no meter readings. Part # FSP 3399848 could this be my problem? Thank You


Both the Thermal cutoff and the operating t-stat should have ZERO ohms resistiance 0.8 is fine but open on either they are bad

That part number you have listed is what ya would need..even if only the thermal cutoff is open replace both the thermal cutoff and high limit t-stat at the same time

also if the cycling t-stat is open replace it too...if its fairly modenr and hasa digital display the cycling thermostat is a thermister and at room temp that will be about 5.8 thousand ohms

if has timer the cycling t-stat will look like the high limit t-stat and should be closed

Whirlpool dryer WGD5600SQ0,will not tumble..door switch activates light and timer..Control panel on/off switch changes states when tested with meter..thermal switch on bulk head measures short , belt ok

The issue is with the belt that is bad and so the dryer won't turn, to solve the issue you'll have to replace the belt.Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Dryer will not get hot. All the vents are clean.

Check for burnt out heating element and electrical connections to element and thermostats. If okay check all thermostats, operating and high limit, with an ohm meter. All must be in closed position. If element,thermostats,and electrical connections good then check timer.

It keeps running non-stop but wont heat up

Your temperature thermostat or heater coil is most likely bad, you can test by ohming each. NOTE: The heating circuit should be troubleshot with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present with the dryer turned off. Resistance readings are as follows:

Heating Element (located inside heater box) – remove the two leads from the ceramic terminals on the heating element and take a reading across the terminal points. It should read 9 - 13 ohms.

Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) (mounted to the heater box.) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

Hi-Limit Thermostat (mounted to the heater box, closest to the heating element leads) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

If any of the above readings are abnormal, replace the component. NOTE: If the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is defective it is highly recommended by most manufacturers to replace BOTH components at the same time. They are often sold as a set. Without doing so, these components can cause potentially fail again.

My dryer isnt getting hot and I need to know which part to replace. I havent checked resistance yet but what the next step if it isnt showing an open and I get 220VAC from the line? Thermal fuse, high...

You have covered the parts needing checked. I'm sure you will find your problem in one of those. If you find the thermal fuse and or thermal cut off is blown don't stop checking parts because the cycling thermostat will also be bad. You may also find a clogged vent. Also if you ohm the element and it shows a circuit, make sure to also ohm it to the housing that the element is made to. They will break and both ends will some times then lay on the housing making it look like it's ok when you ohm it. Plus they will sometimes break and then when they cool the ends will end up touching again. This will also give you a false reading that it's good. Be sure to inspect it if it ohms a closed circuit. Good luck

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Working but no heat

it sounds like your heating element is gone bad. there is no heat if they burn out or get corroded

Thermostat, High limit and low limit thermostat or even a safety Temp limiter. All three are similar in cost and located on the back inside of the dryer and 1 by the airflow tube under the lint trap.
