Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
Going to have dh check the venting-do i even want to mess with replacing the heating fuse? where would i buy that? should i just get a new one....not sure how long dryers are supposed to last these days. mine is only 5 years old. no problems ever up until now.
HI, To get to the element, you have to remove the lower front panel. You will see the element on the right side under the drum.
With the dryer running, you should have 240V the the two terminals on the element.
If there is voltage, replace the element. If there is no voltage, check the thermastats and the fuse. UNPLUG the dryer and check them for continuity. They should be closed.
This dryer is worth fixing. They are good ones.
I can help you with part #'s or answer more questions if yyou need.
I hope this helps

The first thing to check is the fuses or breakers in your homes fuse box. If this fuse is blown, it is possible for your dryer to spin but not produce heat. If you've checked the fuses and they are not blown, the next possible cause is the heating element.
To check the heating element, move the back panel of the dryer. You'll need a volt/ohmmeter to check the element terminal. Locate the element and set the volt/ohmmeter on the RX-1 scale. Remove one lead from the element and then place one probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the terminal of the element. Place the other probe of the volt/ohmmeter on the remaining terminal of the element. Look for a continuity reading of the volt/ohmmeter of approximately 2-5 ohms. If there is no continuity reading, the heating element is defective and should be replaced.
Also clean the lint filter every time you use the dryer. Even if the lint filter is cleaned after every load, lint will still accumulate around the dryer's moving parts, the exhaust duct and vent. Each year inspect the vent pipe and vent cover operation. Disconnect the exhaust duct and remove lint from the internal exhaust pipe, the duct and the vent. Make sure the duct has no kinks, where lint and moisture can build-up.
Turn off the power; remove the front and rear panels and vacuum out the lint from around the motor and idler. Poor air flow uses more energy and can cause lint build-up in the internal ducting, leading to a fire hazard.
