Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Whirlpool senseon electric dryer (model #GEX9868-JQ0) would not start when start button was pressed. Opened back and removed wires from thermal fuse and shorted them together, dryer started fine. So I replaced both the thermal fuse and the thermistor. The dryer ran for two days and the same thing has occurred again, dryer won't start. Any suggestions on what to do next? The vent and inside of the dryer look pretty clean to me.

SOURCE: Dryer does not turn on
Sounds like the motor relay is not functioning. Sometimes the motor will work if the button is pushed but will stop when the button is released. This is caused by a loose wire at the motor or a bad motor relay.

sounds as if wither you have a bad motor assy, or something haas fallen down into the "blower assy" preventing the motor form spinning.. in the back wher eyou tested your fuse, just to the left of that you see a large tubular housing (rounded on bottom", thats the cover for the blower , i believe its 3-4 screw holding it on, nad also the 2 screws visable when you remove the filter assy, the housing will pull off( you may need to wiggle it abit) and hopefully youll find a sock or something jammed in the blower assy

Hi, If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you get a flame, then you will need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is the most common problem with the gas dryer not heating consistant. Make sure your venting to the outside is cleaned out. A plugged went causes the coils to go back quicker.
I hope this helps and please let me knw if I can assist you further.
