Question about Whirlpool GEW9200L Electric Dryer
The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around
It sounds to me like you have a broken belt you can check this by removing the three screws at rear top of dryer this will allow you to remove the top after top is removed you should be able to see the drum it should have a thin belt about 3/8 inch wide if there is no belt visible its probably broke if you see the belt check and see if it is tight against the drum if it is loos it may have jumped off bottom pulley.let me know what you find we can go farther

The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
If the door switch is in good condition and, it is functioning, replace the electronic control board assembly.
