Whirlpool Senseon Dryer-drum doesn't spin & stuck on sensing mode

2001 Whirlpool Senseon Dryer (Model GEX9868JQ0).

The dryer provides its 'Drying Status' which includes: Sensing, Wet, Damp, Drying/Cool Down. When the 'Start' button is pressed, the drying status remains on the 'Sensing' status. Meanwhile, the drum does not spin while in the 'Sensing' mode. The dryer has power but is not going to a drying status.

What could cause the dryer to remain in the 'Sensing' mode?
Why is the drum not spinning while in the 'Sensing' mode?

    Would a broken belt also cause the dryer to stay in Sensing mode?

  • bsr407 Feb 16, 2009

    Thanks Ronnieh49! I will investigate the belt and see if that's it. I will follow up with the results.

Why does my whirlpool senseon dryer start when i disconnect the thermistor wire but then shuts off after a minute?


In some dryer's the control panel relies on a thermistor rather than a CYCLING thermostat to regulate the drum's air temperature by monitoring the component's resistance changes; resistance goes down as temperature increases and up when temperature decreases. Once the drum's air temperature reaches a certain level required to dry clothes, the control panel shuts off the heater. The panel will turn the heater on again and begin another heating cycle when the thermistor indicates that more heat is needed to keep the air temperature constant inside the drum

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle. Which are reflected by the thermostats.

How can I check the control panel for my dryer, to make sure that is the problem?


Ha Ha what is the problem? Let guess64e70f6.jpeg
Obviously it ain't drying the clothes. Maybe it ain't even running?
Or it could be working just for not too long. If it has auto sensing then the moisture sensing strips might be clogged with something that is preventing the dryer from sensing wetness.1753c2e.jpg That is easy, just windex them sensing strips. If they can't sense wetness then the control will shut down quickly and the clothes will be wet. Lets see what else the crystal ball has...I have some manuals HERE

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...


This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

Dryer will not start


Check the following:
Is the power cord plugged in?
Has a fuse blown, or has circuit break er tripped?
Was a regular fuse used? Use a time-delay fuse.
Is the dryer door firmly closed?
Was the START button firmly pressed?
Is a cycle selected?

GGW9200 Dryer Does Not Dry. Status Light goes immediately to Wet


if the heat is only staying on for a few seconds and cutting out the vent line could be clogged,pull out the dryer,remove the vent line from the back and start it,if the heat stays on the vent is blocked,this is the easiest thing to start with,if the vent is clogged you can try a leaf blower and blow the lint out of the vent line
