Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
I've had our Duet Dryer for about 3 years and when it works its great! But it seems to gather alot of lint inside which gradually lessens its drying capabilities over time. Twice I've taken off the vent hose & thoroughly cleaned it out and I've had the wall vents cleaned out twice as well. This is a time consuming and somewhat expensive project which I never look forward to. Recently it was showing the same symptoms and I was about to do the routine again but this time it completely stopped heating up at all! From reading some of these blogs, looks like it may have a bigger problem this time. Any thoughts? I've got kids coming back from camp in two days, so this is about to be an emergency!
DOes the the dryer run still? But with no heat? I would look into you fuses...the fuses are located on the botton....take the bottom panel off by unscrewing the 2 bottom screw (they are kind of sunken but they are there) Once that is off look down and there are fuses...You need to get a multi meter or someone that you know that has one and know to to use it. there are are 3 fuse/thermostats down ther, one of themm might be bad and you have to find out which one it is....you need to get a multimeter and and put it on the ohms setting..now with the cord un-plugged from the dry, check the thermofuse first,(its the white skinny small ovel shaped fuse) take the wires off and put your meter leads of you meter on the fuse where the wires were connected. Meter should be on the ohms setting. If it reads "OL" than thats your problem. If it reads 0.0 ohms then its good fuse. plug the wires back and try the next one next to it. The next one next to it is a thermistor,(its black color i believ) this one should read more than 0.0 ohms. If it reads something besides "OL" then its good. If its "OL" then its bad. if it checks out ok then plug the wires back on it. theres another one on the burner tube i believe. this one is further in, do the same test and see what the meter tells you. If you get an "OL" any of them then change that one out....hopefully this helps, let me kno what happens find out
