I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer model ggw9200lw1. when i press the start button it clicks once but wont run.

First, check the door switch. Push and release it by hand and you should hear a click. If no sound, replace the door switch with this part.
If the switch is ok, press the cancel button on the machine. Then do this. press and hold the start button for 2 seconds then release wait 2 seconds and press and hold again for 2 seconds continue this pattern until the dryer goes into test mode. You will see all the lights on the control light up. press each button on the control one at a time 3 times each. (Do not press the cancel button) until the dryer begins to run. When the dryer starts to run then press the cancel button. Then your machine should function properly.

Maytag Electric Dryer will not run. Start button sometimes gives a momentary low pitched hum then dies. Motor wont start. Door is closed power is on to unit.

Try this, tape the button down press start and give the drum a push to see if it will spin. If you can jump start it that way, you will need to replace the motor.

The most common problems with this problem is that there is a fuse that has blown in the dryer or that the door switch has failed and needs to be replaced or the timer switvch or the motor it'sef has went out (NOT LIKLEY) THOUGH
Or THE dryers push start button is faulty
so please check these things out and replace any parts that are found to be defective

Hope this is very helpful for you best regards Mike

Press the start button on dryer, it hums but wont turn. With 2 people pressed the start button again, held the door switch, reached in turned the drum, it hummed stopped humming then no more nothing....

Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

Press start button but wont stay on

the switch is fine
the switch in all dryers triggers a relay, that then latches and supplies current to motor and heater, until deactivated by door switch or timer switch
inside the control panel,
trace the wires from the start switch to the first device
c27eaf9.jpgmay be opaque.
ensure that the wires are all connected.
if all are connected replace relay
the local part store will have the relay it is common to most dryers
Cant give exact instructions, no experience with particular model
