Question about Dryers
We have a Whirlpool GEW9200L0 dryer that's probably five years old and has run great for many of those years. Recently, the dryer will run for awhile and shut off, but the timer will still show time and count down. If we cancel the cycle, the dryer will not restart. We have to wait for about 30 minutes before it will start again.
We have cleaned the vent with a special chimney sweep-looking tool and pulled the front lower panel to vacuum all the lint from inside the dryer. There is noticable air flowing out the vent and it feels warm/hot. We have also run the diagnostics on the front panel (more-less-more-less), but there are no error codes.
I would check for a faulty high limit thermostat. This is a small round device mounted on a metal plate and attached to the internal ductwork. It's recommended that the thermal fuse be replaced at the same time and may come as a set from a parts supplier. I will attach a photo of a fuse/thermostat for reference. Remember to disconnect the dryer from power source before attempting any repair. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

This is your motor. When it runs and then stops for 30 minutes, it's cooling down before starting up again. If you will call or email us, we'll be sure to send the right part out to you right away to get your dryer working properly again real soon. We look forward to hearing back from you real soon.
