Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
Rotating dial to a drying cycle and press start button - hear a "click" and nothing happens. The door is closed - the dryer has power - light is on when I open the door. Dryer is only two years old - any ideas on what is wrong?
First of all ensure these things:
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breakertripped?
Electric dryers use 2 household fuses or circuit breakers. The
drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Replace the
fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call
■ Is the correct power supply available?
Electric dryers require 240 volt power supply. Check with a
■ Was a regular fuse used?
Use a time-delay fuse.
■ Is the dryer door firmly closed?
■ Was the Start button firmly pressed?
■ Is a cycle selected?
The dryer will not start in the Wrinkle Guard® position. Move
the dial past OFF.
If all these points can be answered with "yes" then check first if there is power to it, the water tank light comes on and the door switch is ok. The most common reason for the starting problem is the start relay, located behind the front timercontrol panel. This is more often not more than a cubed shape box made ofclear plastic with about 6 spade connectors on it, look for burn marksinside it, replace if looks damaged, do not attempt to bypass or shortout to test, as you will blow the timer or and control circuit boardand cause extensive damage. Ensure that power cables are disconnected when doing this!
