Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
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?

SOURCE: dryer will not start
If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:
Power from the house
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.
