Hello Jean;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

If the high temperature limit switch was bad you would not get any heat at all.

I do not believe you have a control problem nor a heater problem.

What you have is a air flow problem. You are plugged up with lint in your hot air distribution manifold. You control is trying to get up to temperature but can not because not enough hot air is flowing.
This is a very common problem where people have to run the dryer 2 or 3 times to get the clothes dry.

The good news is it is a easy fix. In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. It is held on by about 7 screws. You air blower in your dryer is at the bottom of this manifold. Un screw the manifold and pull straight out.
1.) Unplug your dryer.
2.) Remove the manifold screws.
3.) Pull the manifold straight out.
4.) Clean out the bottom of the manifold that is plugged up.
5.) Clean the fan wheel face and rotate to ensure it is free.

6.) Remove the vent connection from the dryer to the outside wall. Inspect and clean.

If the problem still exist please call me, Peter, Glen Burnie, MD 443-306-1362

SOURCE: There are two heat settings

DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

It sounds like the double switch is bad and only working on one setting! Or a 2 stage blower motor that needs to be replaced!needs to be replaced!

This is a situation that you will need service!


If this dryer is 10 years old or more do not spend any money on it!
The new ones are much more efficient! If you have to replace it buy a Speed Queen , it will do 8 loads a week for 25 years!
It's the last washer and dryer I will ever buy!!!! And less expensive than a top of the line unit!

Here is the service company I refer my appliance customers too!
A&E Factory Service
A Nation Wide Company. / Available 24 / 7 for arranging appointments! In the USA.

Good luck!
You will be fine now!

Thank You

SOURCE: replace heating element for Duet Dryer GEW9200LW1

First disconnect the power to the dryer by unplugging it from the wall. Then remove the 3 screws on the lower panel of the dryer. This should expose the heating element in a metal housing on the right side of the dryer. Disconnect the 2 wires going to the heating element and slide it out of the housing. The heating element part number is 3387747.

Why is my heating system short cycling?


What is your Temperature Rise across the furnace? Match this with the name plate. This tells you a lot. Is the t-rise higher or lower? If its higher, you could have restricted airflow or exhaust issues. If its lower, could be gas pressure or duct work problems, pulling in colder air somewhere. More info is needed to help. I am assuming the furnace is operating continuously when you say it will not heat over 66 degrees?

Why are my equipment rating numbers important.


Rating numbers indicate the efficiency of heating and air conditioning equipment and are directly related to the amount of energy a specific model uses. The higher the rating, the more efficient the product, and the lower your heating and cooling bills can be. The federal government establishes rating guidelines and sets minimum efficiency levels. For cooling, the rating is SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). For heat pumps, the rating is HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor). Gas furnaces are rated with AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency).

Whirlpool duet dryer GEW9200LW1 heats


If the element was replaced, and now verified that it is not presently shorted to ground, your next diagnostic would be to to test the timer connections per the schematic lookiong for a fused contact that energizes the heater, while set to air fluff setting.

My older model electric hotpoint selfcleaing range, lower oven self cleaning function is not working. what could be wrong, maybe i didn't set a control knob correctly, don't have a maual for t


Back to the fifties! If the lower oven cooks normally, the heating element probably is OK. For self cleaning the normal temperature setting is bypassed and the heating element is set to a substantially higher level. Your oven may be unable to self clean because operation of the knob may not actually start the cycle. The thermostat could need replacing even though normal cooking is OK.

How do i operate the creda 79153, i think i set it wrongly and it costing me more.thanks


You have to regulate the heat yourself by setting the room temperature dial to 1 for a low heat (say for the daytime if you are out) and a higher setting in the evening - Make sure you switch it back to the lower setting before you go to bed. This should make the heat last for most of the day - the other dial is to regulate the heat that is stored so in the summer set it to 1 and the winter store at a higher setting -hope this helps

they are storage heaters and they have bricks in them. They get heated during the night (economy 7), that starts according to what has been set on the system (there shd be a *** 'boiler' room where the economy seven is). Anyway they heat up from the evening say 8 pm to around 6 am. And because the bricks are hot they slowly release heat during the day depending on what level you have set your room temperature to. The overnight charge does what it says on the tin, in that the brick will heat to a level you have set it at. the higher it is the hotter it gets and the more heat you can have during the day.
