Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Open Question

Whirlpool dryer doesn't work.

My whirlpool dryer (mod# GEW9200LW2/ser# MR3116676/type DADT-ELE-2406028-EL54) broke Tuesday morning. I had just taken out a load of dry clothes and put in a load of wet clothes. I push the button and it clicks, makes a beep, lights are on, but nothing happens. The light by "sensing" is lit. Nothing else happens. I tried using it on different cyles - same thing happens. I tried moving the drum on the inside and felt a little resistence, this was done based on what I had read on this website. I also tried the circuit braker in the basement and I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in - but I get the same result. The dryer is only about 4 years old. Any suggestions?

    I have same the problem with the DADT-ELE-2406024-EL54. The drum light and control lights are coming on. I tried resetting my circuit breakers, unplugging and replugging. I suspect that the door switch is bad. I need to know how dismantle so that I can replace the switch. What is the part number for the door switch?

SOURCE: dryer will not start

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Remove the back panel from the control panel to access the start switch. If there are 4 wires on the start switch,replace the start switch.

My kenmore elite he3 quit working model number DADT-ELE-2406024-EL54 do you know why?


The heating coil safety switch/fuse may have been activated if it got too hot in there. It is very common for escaped lint to finally build up where it should not be. The first thing is to learn how to remove the front of the machine and inspect for a build up of lint. Happens often over time.
