Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
My whirlpool dryer will not start. I loaded it, shut the door, turned the power on and hit the start button. It clicked and the sensing light is on but the drum does not turn and no heat. Time does count down and all the lights are on but no action. There is no error code either. I can not find anything in our manual troubleshooting section so I have no idea of what this can be. Please can someone help me?

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet dryer will no start...the "sensing" light comes on when you hit start; it makes the click noise in the door when you hit start, it counts down, but it does not tumble or anything
you have a blown thermal fuse. you can get one where they have parts it is about 5 dollars.

It's probably either the start switch or door switch. Try bypassing the switch and see if it starts. If it does,you can either replace the switch or try taking it apart and fixing the switch yourself. (I had a switch that simply required a copper contact to be readjusted and its worked perfectly for several years)
