Whirlpool Seseon Gas Dryer GGW9868

Hi, I have a problem with Whirlpool Seseon Gas Dryer (Mod#GGW9868KQ1), It worked perfectly till last weekend, usual laundry day. I chose the cycle pressed Start, heard click, but drum tumbling didn't start, Stopped cycle, re-programmed for another one - the same result, click and the drum didn't spin. Here is the set of actions, which i performed so far:
1. Opened a toe panel and tested thermal fuse, thermistor and high limit thermostat for continuity Examined connectors, removed all the lint (wasn't a lot!).
2. Performed factory diagnostic tests (access code: more time - less time, more time - less time). No error codes, door switch looks good.

Is there anything i can do before taking dryer apart? Also, is there any educated way to access motor area without removing the drum or ripping a back part of cabinet?

Thank you fin advance for your assistance.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet electric wil not heat

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

SOURCE: Dryer won't start. Start switch tests goo.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

No heat at all whirlpool gas dry mod. num. wed5300sq0


Because you have a gas dryer, your problem is probably caused by the ingition panel.Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty.If this helps solve your problem, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice

I have a ggw9868 gas dryer it works fine but it beeps at all times... i use the test diagnostic and casual led constantly flashes and also beeps. when it finish a cycle after a few minutes display goes on...


The display board with the buttons, or user interface has a stuck keypad on it. Sounds like the casual button is the culprit. The dryer thinks you are constantly pushing the key that is stuck and is beeping and starting itself up. I tried looking up the part number for you but it looks like the model should be ggw9868 and then K then L,Q, or T and then a number. You will also need the color for the part lookup. The part is called Panel, Console (includes key switch). This replaces the whole front panel assembly and should take care of your problem.
Please rate this post. Thank You

Whirlpool mod # WGD5300SQ0 gas dryer gets hot but does not stay hot Is it a thermostat or radiant sensor or something else


by all means when dealing with natural gas consult only trained professionals....as natural gas does not have an odor..the odor that you smell is an actually additive that has been place for just this reason.

Dryer does not glow or lite up but it runs


I just diagnosed the same problem with my estate model by wirlpool. It is most likely the thermal fuse located in the back (behind the panel) It is a $12.00 part. My neighbor fixed his father's unit with same issue 2 weeks ago.

Whirlpool dryer has very little heat


Sounds like your not getting enough gas supply,there is a regulater that controls the flow of gas they can get carbon build-up and restrict the gas.You need to turn off your gas supply and unplug it,remove the regulator and clean the lines,or replace the part.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or
