Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer
I've cleaned the lint traps, checked the circut breaker - Help!
I need help fixing my 5 year old dryer. whirlpool duet model GEW9200LW1. I have replaced the thermistor. I tested (with an ohm meter) the heating coil, thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, & heating element and they were all fine. I replaced the electronic control assembly and the user interface. THE DRYER STILL WONT HEAT.
Then it occurred to me that the sensor may not allow the dryer to heat if its not sensing wet. Could this be true? Have I been trouble shooting this wrong?

MAKE SURE YOUR VENT ISNT CLOGGED AND YOU HAVE 220 VOLTS AT THE DRYER IF ALL THIS CHECKS OUT GO TO ELEMENT WHICH IS BEHIND THE LOWER PANEL IN THE FRONT.REMOVE THE PANEL WITH THREE SCREWS ON THE BOTTOM AND TAP DOWN AND OUT AT THE SAME TIME. USE A VOLT OHM METER AND CHECK OHMS ACROSS THE TERMINALS OF THE HEATER IT SHOULD HAVE A OHM READING IF NOT CHANGE HEATER AND OPERATING THERMOSTAT GOOD LUCK

Check out the site called "repairclinic" dot com and enter your dryer's make and model. The site covers most of the problems one will find with their dryer as well as other appliances. 99% of the time, your problem will be with the THERMAL FUSE. It allows the drum to turn but won't ignite the gas. Located near the lint removal tunnel at the back of the machine, replace it for about $15 and see what happens! Gas dryers only have a few parts that can be the culprit.
