Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Clothes don't dry fully on automatic cycle with "normal" selected.

When I first got the machine (GEW9250PWO) it seemed to dry fine although there was never much lint in the lint filter.

The house it is installed in is just two years old and there is a very strong and large volume of air coming out the roof vent with no visble sign of lint stuck to the inside of the vent pipe either behind the machine or down the roof vent.

I have run the dryer and smacked the flapper on the roof shut 10 or 15 times (like you might do a clogged vaccuum cleaner hose) with nothing but a pencil eraser size piece of lint coming out of the vent.

If you set the machine on "more" dry it 'almost' completely drys a load of towels or jeans but not all the way.

Since the output is volumous (blows your hair back), the house is so new and the machine seems to heat could there be another problem?

Thank you

    My duet whirlpool dryer is not drying the clothes. When I turn on the dryer condensation forms and begins to drip out of the door and the glass on front of the dryer is covered with condensation also. it takes about 2 hours to dry a load of clothes and longer for towels. It is only 3 years old.

    I have the same problem, full loads do not dry, like towels, jeans and sweats. The duet dryer also turns off and on. Sometimes the dryer turns on all by itself. the timer is off too. The condensation seems to be a lot.

    Does anyone have this problem with a duet dryer gew9250pw?

There may be a fault on the low heat setting, check the element works on both settings, otherwise nothing to suggest, apart from are you overloading it with too many items?

    I finally found the problem, the tub support rollers had worn down allowing the front of the drum to drop down which in turn crushed the felt gasket allowing the dryer to pull cool air from inside the dryer's cabinet through the large leak created rather than pull the hot air from the rear of the tub across the clothes.
    I had a repairman who is a friend come and take a look and he said that was the first time he had ever seen that happen.
    He replaced the rollers and the felt gasket at both the front and rear of the drum and it began drying like it should.
    That was so far from any problem I imagined it could be that I'm surprised we ever found it.. I was ready to junk the dryer.

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer

Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help

Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

Amana model LGA30AW automatic setting doesn't shut the dryer off

You can make adjustments to your Automatic Cycles by adjusting the Factory Dryness Level:
Changing the Automatic Cycle settings to increase or decrease drying time:
If all your loads on all Automatic Cycles are consistently less dry or more dry than you would like, you may change the default settings to increase or decrease the default dryness

Your automatic drying settings can be adjusted to adapt to different installations, environmental conditions, or personal preference. This change is retained and will affect all of your
Automatic Cycles, not just the current cycle/load. There are 5 drying settings, which are displayed using the time display:
0 Much wetter clothes, 30% less drying time.
1 Slightly wetter clothes, 15% less drying time.
2 Factory preset dryness level.
3 Slightly drier clothes, 15% more drying time.
4 Much drier clothes, 30% more drying time.
TO CHANGE THE DRYING SETTINGS: NOTE: The settings cannot be changed while the dryer is running or paused. The dryer must be in standby mode (power is off) to adjust the default settings.
  1. Before starting a cycle, touch and hold DRYNESS for 6 seconds.
  2. Touch DRYNESS to select the dryness level shown in the time display: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  3. Touch START/PAUSE to save the new dryness level setting.

Machine drys fine on timed cycles but shuts off before clothes are dry on automatic cycle.

First try cleaning the moisture sensors with rubbing alcohol, these are two silver colored strips located inside the drier just below the lint cleanout

It sounds as if you have the dryer button pressed in before you start the wash! If you don't. it is likely it is stuck in or the switch is shorting out on the back. Unless you are a competent DIYer, find someone who is to check the electrical connections and test whether the switch is working correctly.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....

The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Broken washer/dryer

This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
