Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Whirlpool Duet dryer will not power up

I have a Whirlpool Duet dryer and last night it dried a load of clothes, and when they came to an end, it will no longer power on. The light comes on inside the drum when I open the door. When I press the power button nothing happens. I checked the fuse box. I unplugged it for a couple of minutes. I am not sure what else to do. Can anyone give me any pointers?

    I don't know if this helps but it says Duet Sport as far as the name goes.

    checked it; and it was fine. I even replaced it. I thought could have been the problem too, since it happened with my old dryer. Like I said before when I open the door the light comes on, but nothing comes on or responds on the frot panel.

    model number GEW9250PLO- same exact problem, light inside the drum is on, but control button will not turn dryer on

    my dryer stpped running last night ,the lights still work on the front panel but dryer will not come on.

    The thermal fuse is located next to the motor.  You will see a aluminum tube come from the motor and about four or five inches out you will see two wires going into the tube.  Depending on the model it should be the thermal fuse.

    I have replaced the thermal fuse and broke down and called a repairman.  The first thing he did was check the thermal fuse as well and then another fuse and told me that it was a bad circuit board and it would be cheaper to buy a new dryer....Frustrating.

    can you tell me how to locate the fuse inside the dryer and exactly how to do it, please thanks

Check your thermal fuse if no continuity through it then change it, it acts just like a car fuse. If it blows you can't see it you have to test it with a continuity tester. Go here and see what it looks like www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-gew9250-%3d%3di2986&PartID=2986

Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Duet Sport Dryer front load leaks water underneath the dryer when drying heavy duty clothes


The clothes then are too wet for the heat to evaporate. Spin extra time to get rid of as much water as possible before putting them in dryer.

Duet front loader dryer


Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away

Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck

Dryer not drying


look at the vent outside and see if it closing or even has a cover this allows cold air inside the dryer and cause it to take longer to dry
