Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Whirlpool Duet Elec. Dryer Won't Start & Has Dim Lights

The dryer is less than three years old. Model GEW9250. The indicator lights for "damp", "bulky items", and "extra low" (temperature) are dimly lit. The display does not turn on when pushing the green "Control On" button. If I push this button, say 50-100 times, the display will suddenly turn on and I can press the green "Start" button to turn it on, but it only works for less than 10 minutes. Then shuts off again and only the 3 indicator lights listed above stay dimly lit.

Any suggestions? Cost to repair?

Thanks in advance.

My duet front loader dryer has no power

If you have 220v going to the unit you want to take the bottom pannel off. It should be three tork screwws. Then there is a little white fuse mounted on the blower houseing. This is the most common problem especally if your vent has not been cleaned in a while. (over 3-4 years.)
