    I am having the same problem with my model #gew9250pw. I push start and the sensing light comes on, the timer counts down but nothing else happens. Have looked through the manual and no help. I have 6 kids and laundry is overflowing!!!! It is very frustrating since my machine is only 3 years old. Hope someone has some suggestions of what could be wrong.

Okay, I had the same issue. Turned out to be the control panel. Replaced it and it's good-to-go.
Oh, it burned out because of a blocked vent. So if you dry a lot of cotton clothes, or have a large family, get the vents cleaned once a year.

I had the same issue, pressed the End of Cycle button (held down for 3 seconds, it beeped and it reset). The button is cryptically labeled Hold 3 seconds for control unlock - works great now. Pain in the a$$ to figure out.

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Whirpool duet dryer mod GEW9200LW0, working but not heating up


If it's starting and not heating it's usually one of two things. Take off the bottom panel. 2 screws hold it in place. If you have a way to check the element with a meter or something that would be ideal. It should read about a short circuit. The other part that goes out a lot is the thermal fuse located in the front on a pipe it's long and narrow. Here is a link to show where things are in there. Let me know if you have any more questions
