Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Whirlpool Dryer Purchased 3/2007. \r\nModel # GEW9250PW1 Serial # MU01022179 1st issue was the control panel was very dim and wouldn't let you change settings or turn on the dryer. Checked with volt and couldn't find loss of voltage anywhere and even though the electronic control board on the top of the tub had 120 volts we replaced it anyway thinking that may be the problem. Replaced temp sensor on the bottom and the moisture sensor due to poor drying in the past few weeks. We have checked the outlet and have 220 volts and replaced the cord with a new one. It worked 1 time and once it completed the cycle it wouldn't start again. Now the panel is dim and will not let you choose an option or start the dryer. Has anyone else experienced this issue and what is the fix? We have already dumped $250 in a 2 yr old highend dryer and VERY disappointed. Thank You Neil Noe

What does F-1 mean on a Duet front load dryer? Our dryer's lights will turn on but, the dryer will not start up. At first we thought the control panel was locked out. But, it wasn't.

The "F-1" error code means a failure occurred with the electronic controls.. This could mean that wires are broken, the electronics shorted out or a manufacturer's default error shut the washer down.

Prevention/Solution: The electronic control panel needs replacement. Find your dryer serial number and search for the part online. This is a lengthy job that usually requires a repairman unless you have dealt with and repaired dryers before.

If your dryer was purchased within the past couple of years, the dryer could be covered under the warranty. Visit the Whirlpool customer service page for more information or Whirlpool-Duet-Dryer-fault-codes

Hope this helps.

I had the same problem dim lights nothing happens when buttons pushed. I went through the trouble sheet that was in the drying and it pointed me to a bad control board. After replacing the control board it work. Awsome huh. Not it did the same thing a few hours later. I was able to unplug and replug and it worked for a bit and stopped again well after a few times of that it stopped all together. I was kinda upset after spending 135 bucks on that. I didnt want to put any more money into this machine. I took the machine apart and checked all the connections and wires. Removed the front panel and took all the ribbon cables off and made sure those were good too, (didnt short out) everthing checked out. For grins i replaced the 30 amp circuit breaker. The voltage was there but maybe its not getting the amps. I put the drying togeter enough to see what it dose. I didnt want to risk the chance of messing up the control board i bought while doing this so i used the OLD ONe. ( board was sitting on the dryer tub not bolted down). Well low and behold it works. I have been testing it for about 3 hours now. turning it off and on. change the setings on the dryer and so far it is still working. Before it would have messed up already.
