Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Getting NO power

Actually the power cord tests out with the terminal block with a cont. tester. Also tested white wire on terminal block with the white wire at P-1 on the board and the same with the black wires with good results.
I also tested the 'control on' button by testing the corasponding ribbon wires and got a good 3.43 reading.
The belt is in good shape.
Would this indicate the need for a new electronic board?
The dryer is only about a year or less old.

Thanks in advance, Mike

    Thanks, this was a good try, but the thermal fuse was good, showing 0.00 cont. I checked the thermistor next to it and got a 10.12 reading that slowly increased to around 10.95 before leveling off.

    It still seems to be the board?

    I don't really know how the dryer title came up how it did. My dryer is a Maytag Duet MOD9700 SBO

Test you thermal fuse (WPL 279973) (Cutoff, or high limit) these are all the same. It's located on the side of the element housing. If it is bad, besure to replace the cycling thermostat (295 degree F.) also.

How wiring intermatic timer t51211bc i have one circuit control by timer ....and one circuit contro by photocel indor lite and outdoor lite


T51211BC is 120Volt timer that can be wired many different ways because there are two internal relays, and each relay has NO and NC terminals. One relay is controlled by timer dial trippers, and other relay controlled by dawn-dusk photo eye

Timer wiring cannot be fully explained with words.
Below is basic hook-up for your 120Volt wiring application, and then you can use a tester and experiment with the knob settings, and tripper settings.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/ec%204%20layer/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%207%20day/t50000%20series%207-day%20time%20switch.aspx

1) You have 4 cables:
one cable from circuit breaker box;
one cable going to photo control;
one cable going to outdoor Load (lite);
one cable going to indoor Load (lite).

2) Cable from circuit breaker has 2 wires:
Black Hot wire connects to terminal 1
White Neutral connects to terminal 2
This will power the clock motor and timer relays.

3) Photocell has 3 wires:
Black connects to terminal 1
White to terminal 2
Red to terminal 3.
Photocell turns relay on-off for Circuit B
Do not mix different size wires under same screw terminal, or smaller wire will come loose over time. Also do not mix stranded wire and solid copper under same screw terminal for same reason.

4) Terminals 4 thru 12 are 'dry'.
Dry terminals receive no power when power is applied to terminals 1 and 2.
To put power on dry terminals, so that Load will have power, attach Black hot wire from breaker to terminals 9 and 12.
So add a jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 9 and another jumper wire from terminal 9 to terminal 12.
120Volt power is now connected to terminals 1, 9 and 12

5) Circuit B is dawn to dusk for outdoor Load.
Outdoor load cable has Black and White wire.
Connect outdoor Black wire to either terminal 10 or 11.
To test which is correct for your application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 12 and 11, and across terminal 12 and 10. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B to each position and repeat test.
Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

6) Circuit A is Dusk ON and timer OFF
Indoor cable has Black and White wire.
Connect indoor Black wire to either terminal 7 or 8.
To test which is correct for application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 9 and 8, and across terminal 9 and 7. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B and repeat test.
Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

LG electric dryer is not heating. Electric coils test for continuity. Any suggestions?


There are several things that can prevent a dryer from not heating. UNPLUG DRYER BEFORE TESTING ANYTHING.
1- power- Test the receptical to make sure you are getting 220 volts. To do this you need and voltage tester. Both legs should pull 110 and together 220. If one leg is not pulling any power than your breaker is half tripped. Reset breaker to cure your problem. If problem persist it is in the breaker or receptical.
2- cord- To test this unplug dryer. Take the panel covering the cord connections off. Remove cord entirely from dryer. Test each leg for continuity. If any are not showing cont than replace cord.
3- Themal fuse- To test this remove access back access panel on some front panel. By the blower housing there is a fuse white thin sliver or round fuse with 2 wires going to it. The one with 4 wires is your low limit cycling thermistat. The thermal fuse is near that. Disconnect the 2 wires and check fuse for continuity. If meter shows cont fuse it good. If not replace fuse.
4- Hi Limit Thermistat- test same way as thermal fuse. On the heating element housing at the bottom are 3 wires running to a fuse. Test the left and right. The bottom is attached to one of the sides.
5- Thermal Cutoff- Test same way as thermal fuse. This fuse is near the top of the heating elemnt above the Hi Limit. 2 wires with usually plastic covers on them.
6- Heating Element- Below high limit 2 wires. Test for continuity.
If all these fuses are good than you may need to call a technician. The motor may not be getting to the right rpm to activate the senfrigrial switch in the moter. Timer or control board may be out.
7- Motor- If

I would like to know how to wire my timer to my breaker box and pool pump? it a t101m 120v.. my pump has a white and black wire and some to my timer to my box


Wiring diagrams for T-101 appear on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Hot wire goes to terminal 1
Neutral to terminal A

Black wire to pump goes to terminal 2
White wire to pump goes to terminal A along with Neutral wire.

Electricians don't guess, they test.
So lets test wires for sure:

Separate wires.
Use ordinary 2-wire tester from hardware store.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not touch anything metal, stand on dry boards.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. Hot wire connects to terminal 1.
Hot wire is identified.
Test Hot wire to all other wires in box, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire connects to terminal A.
Your other two wires go to Load.
Connect Load black to terminal 2
Connect Load white to terminal A

Leviton T5625 has shutter (tamper resistant) mechanism that blocks access to the contacts unless a two-prong plug is inserted. My understanding is this mechanism prevents child from sticking piece of metal into receptacle and getting shocked. Tamper resistant receptacles are code for new home construction, and receptacle is marked with TR. The light switch part of device works at all times, with or without two-prong plug in receptacle.

Electricians test, they don't guess.

Let's test your wires using ordinary two-prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power. Stand on dry surface or wood boards. Do not shake or sweat.
Separate wires for testing
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. Hot wire connects to either dark-colored screw, as long as there is a brass connector plate that connects both dark colored screws. If connector plate is missing, add a jumper wire between both dark screws so they are connected together.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to each other wire, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral wire. Neutral wire connects to silver screw.
If neutral wire is white wire, AND both white wires were connected together before, then they both connect to silver screw.
The last wire is the Load wire that goes to fan, light, motor. Load wire connects to brass colored screw.

New intermatic T101 timer problem - timer is not


Manual override lever is good overall test of T101 120Volt timer.
T101 timer has 3 terminals: A 1 2

See wiring diagram on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101

Electricians test, they don't guess.
So test your wire:
Separate all wires for testing.
Use ordinary 2 prong tester.
Tape wood sticks to tester leads to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Do not hold or touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. 120V circuit has only 1 Hot wire. If you have 2 Hot wires, you might have 240Volt circuit and need T104 timer. If circuit has 1 Hot wire, then that Hot wire must connect to terminal 1.
If you have NO Hot wire, then check circuit breaker.
Hot wire is identified.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire must connect to terminal A.
If you have NO Neutral wire, then additional wiring is needed, or circuit needs further testing to see what type of wiring you are working with.
Bare ground wires connect to green ground screw.

Notice there are small white wires also connected to terminals A and 1. These small white wires power the 120V clock motor. With Hot on terminal 1 and Neutral on terminal A, the clock motor will run, and yellow dial will rotate.

If timer dial does not rotate after connecting Hot ans Neutral, then test voltage across Hot and Neutral to make sure it reads 120V.

Your circuit should have 2 wires remaining.
These wires go to 120Volt load (fan, light, motor)
Connect these two wires to terminals A and 2.
Try manual override.
If Load turns ON-OFF, then timer is wired correctly.
If Load does NOT turn ON-OFF, then reverse Load wires on terminals A and 2.

I have a T103 that replaced a old Tork timer. my problem is i have 3 wires black,red white where do they go?


T103 has 120volt clock motor.
If your circuit is 240volt, then change T103 for T104.
Electricians test before hooking up wires.
Use ordinary tester.
Separate wires and turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on hot wire.
In absence of bare ground, test each wire against other wires or against grounded surface to isolate the hot wire.
Hot wire connects to terminal 1 on T103 timer.
Now test hot wire to other wires (exclude bare ground)
Tester lights up on Neutral wire.
Neutral wire connects to terminal A.
The last wire must go to Load, so connect this wire to terminal 2.
Bare ground wire connects to green ground screw.
Turn on power, click manual override to check if load turns on and off.
Lift and rotate yellow dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.
Put trippers on outer edge of dial at on-off times.
Off tripper are brass colored.
Each tripper is marked.
Minimum 1 hour on-off period.

How do you wire a intermatic t103


I'm looking at the T-103 sitting here in my office.
Terminals are labeled: A 1 2 3 4
I have about 10 different Intermatic timers on the shelves & each is a bit different

The T103 has a 120Volt (or 110V) clock motor
You need a white Neutral wire to operate the T103 clock

120V: Let's say your Load (light, fan, pump) is 120V
The white Neutral from breaker box connects to Terminal A
The 120V black Hot wire from breaker box connects to Terminal 1
The black wire going to Load (fan, light, motor) connects to terminal 2
The white wire going to Load connects to terminal A along with the Neutral
Ground wires connects to green ground screw
If your wires from breaker and wires to load are wired in reverse, the timer will turn ON the Load but the timer will not shut the circuit OFF.
To test which wire is Hot and Neutral, look at explanation at bottom of page.

240V: Let's say your Load is 240 Volts (or 220 Volts)
The clock motor is still 120V so you still need a white Neutral wire connected on Terminal A
Now you have 2 Hot wires coming from breaker box
Hot wire 1 from breaker box connects to Terminal 1
Hot wire 2 from breaker box connects to Terminal 3
Wire 1 going to Load connects to Terminal 2
Wire 2 going to Load connects to Terminal 4
Ground wires connects to green ground screw

What if you don't have a Neutral wire and you are wiring a 240V circuit?
240V circuits normally have 2 hots and a ground, but no neutral
Buy the T-104 timer
The T-104 has a 240V clock motor
Wiring for the T-104 is exactly the same as 240V wiring shown above for T103 EXCEPT there is no Neutral on Terminal A, and Terminal A is bare
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

How to test which wire is Hot
Test requires wires with live electricity >>> this is not advisable without precaution
Stand on dry boards, do not touch anything metal, wear dry clothes, do not hold screwdriver in mouth, wear gloves, tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power
Remove wires from terminals
Separate wires so they can be tested
Turn on power
Test each wire to bare ground wire
Tester lights up on Hot wire(s)
If circuit is 120V, then there is only one Hot wire
If circuit is 240V, then 2 wires will test hot to ground >> these wires will be Hots 1 & 2
Test assumes circuit breaker is functioning normally.

How do you test for neutral?
If you have 120V line with only 1 hot wire, then one of the white wires will be Neutral?
Test Hot wire to each white wire
Tester lights up on neutral

I have a tork 1103 electromechanical switch. its working but wont


T1103 can be wired many ways.
T1103 has 240V clock motor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#1101

You are connecting 240Volt pool pump to timer.
Open link below and see wiring diagram: look at bottom left diagram:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/110111021103WIRING.pdf

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Turn power off and separate wires for testing.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Stand on dry boards. Wear dry clothes.
Do not touch anything metal.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
For 240V circuit, two different wires should light up tester. Working from your description, by code, these wires should be black and red.
Each of these wires is Hot wire.
These are called Line wires, wires going to pump are called Load wires.
Hot wires connect to terminals L and 1. This will power the clock motor and dial will rotate as time passes, assuming clock motor is good.

Hots are identified.
Test one of the hot wires to remaining wire, and not to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire. This should be white wire.
Double check that Neutral wire did not light up on bare ground.
Neutral is not connected to any 1103 terminal.

Remaining wires go to Load (pool pump).
By code, assuming Hot Lines are Red and Black, the Red & Black Load wires connect to X terminal and 2 terminal, in either order. One wire on each terminal.
White wire connects to Neutral wire and is covered with wire nut.
