Problem: Push On Button, Press to Start. Click. Sensing. No Tumbling.
Solution: Called repairperson. Replaced Thermal Fuse (Part 3390719) and also suggested having venting system checked (ours vents through attic). Charged $198.00. This did not appear to be a problem that a layperson could fix, although a very handy person might be able to do it.

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.

Fixed! I opened up the top of the dryer (which can be done by simply removing three screws on the back of the unit and then sliding the top back and up) and found that the dryer belt was snapped in half. There is a belt tensioner near the motor that has a switch in it and will not allow the dryer to start if there is no tension on the belt. I was able to change the belt by myself for only $10, but it was not the easiest thing to do so calling a service shop would be recommended.

Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.
